President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday promised survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban City that they would move to their permanent housing units by March.

“March, lipat na kayo dito, at magbalik ako. Kung hindi matapos March, maggawa kayo ng limang krus, iyong parang kay Kristo. Ipakarga ko sa kanila at ikot-ikot dito. Pako ko lang,” he said, referring to the officials on stage including Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr. and Tacloban Mayor Christina Romualdez.

“July is too far away,” he added.

Duterte was in Tacloban City to lead the inauguration of New Hope Village in Barangay Sta. Elena.

According to the City Government of Tacloban, the New Hope Village has 1,000 units. A total of 900 have been turned over to beneficiaries, but only 500 have been occupied.

The slow rehabilitation in Tacloban City angered Duterte when he visited the area during its anniversary in during the anniversary of the tragedy last November, he said.

“Galit ako kasi three years after, iyan lang ang natrabaho ng gobyerno. And the first time I came here, I was not really very pleased and as a matter of fact, talagang pinapakita ko lang na kunwari, talagang asar ako, at hanggang ngayon kasali na kami, huwag na natin — do not excuse anyone,” he said.

“Sabi ko noon, 28 lang ang nakalipat. Kung 28 lang ang nakalipat ‘noong nandito ako November, sabi ko, ‘P— ina, itong project ninyo, sunugin na lang ninyo.’ Sabi ko, ‘I will back December.’ But I was not able to make it because I was very busy. But finally I decided to just check on the — how they fare with their jobs,” he added.
