STA. ROSA, Nueva Ecija—The Solid Duterte Supporters Group, which supports President Rodrigo Duterte’s reforms towards good governance, has boosted its growing membership in Luzon with two new chapters—the Cordillera Autonomous Region and the Nueva Ecija provincial chapter.
Its new chapter members were sworn in separate ceremonies in Baguio City and Santa Rosa town, Nueva Ecija, on Dec. 15 and 16, respectively.
Games and Amusement Board Commissioner Mar Masanguid, SDSG founder and chairman, and Secretary General Greg Conde jointly presided over the induction rites.
Masanguid said SDSG, also called the “D’ Original,” supports the President’s proposal for a shift to a federal government system, as well as his anti-illegal drugs campaign. The movement was among the first groups to support Duterte’s declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao.
He said the two new chapters boast of about 2,000 initial members combined, on top of SDSG’s present membership of 10,000 across the entire country.
The CAR chapter members, led by Douglas Rufino and Gilbert Mojica as regional chair and vice chairman respectively, were inducted at the Melvin Jones Grandstand in Burnham Park, Baguio City.
Also present at the rites were Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan, Vice Mayor Edison Bilog, and the entire city council. Rufino is CAR regional director of the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
The Nueva Ecija chapter officers and members, led by Ramoncito M. Tombo as chairman, and Jose Ariel G. Domingo as vice chair, were inducted in Sta. Rosa town of the province.
The movement also has existing organized chapters in Marikina, Mandaluyong, Valenzuela, Bacoor in Cavite, Visayas and Mindanao. It is now in the process of organizing more chapters in Metro Manila, Southern Tagalog and the Bicol Region.
Masanguid was the organizer of the Rodrigo Roa Duterte for 2016 President Movement, long before Duterte contemplated to run for the Presidency. The movement subsequently precipitated and generated popular and overwhelming nationwide support for his presidential bid.
