Ex-NTF adviser urges Filipinos to choose ‘a leader who will make PH proud’

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.
