Amid the ongoing campaigns for the 2022 national and local elections, health reform advocate and former National Task Force (NTF) against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) special adviser Dr. Anthony “Tony” Leachon urged Filipinos to pick a leader who will make the country proud.
“We can’t choose a candidate with our eyes closed,” said Leachon in a tweet on Tuesday, Feb. 15.
According to Leachon, the ideal attributes for “a right leader” include honesty, competence, inspiring leadership, vision, and moral courage.
“Pick a leader who will make the Filipino citizens proud. A Filipino leader who will stir the hearts of the people so that the sons and daughters of a given nation strive to emulate their leader’s greatness,” Leachon reiterated.
