PANDEMIC recovery, education, food and nutrition security, government alliance with the private market, the coalition against illegal drugs and illegality, along with construction development and human rights, are among the topics that legislators and a non-government organization aspire to President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to address in his first State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday, July 25, 2022, at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City.

However, officers in Cebu have been directed to conform to the Sona security strategy.

Cebu City Police Lt. Col. Janette Rafter, Cebu City Police Office deputy director for Operations, stated that personnel will be deployed on Monday since successful organizations are planning protest demonstrations during the Sona. Senator Loren Legarda said she expected Marcos to enlighten the people about his administration’s particular steps to achieve a “better normal” in the aftermath of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) outbreak. She hopes that these initiatives are “aligned and attuned to the climate path.”

She also stated that Marcos will present his ideas to rebuild the higher education system, which was severely harmed by the epidemic, as well as his measures to solve the Philippines’ debt, which stood at P12.495 trillion as of May 2022.

Sen. Sonny Angara likes to hear what the government plans to do to boost economic growth, particularly with Marcos’ desire to engage directly with private organizations to address difficulties surrounding the return of pre-pandemic operations.

“How the government can improve health services and education, job creation, these are what our countrymen want to hear in President BBM’s Sona,” he stated.

Former Philippine National Police (PNP) head and Senator Ronald dela Rosa expressed optimism that Marcos will state that he might continue the initiatives of President Rodrigo Duterte’s government, notably those combating illicit narcotics, crime, and terrorist acts.

Sen. Christopher Go believes Marcos would promise to continue to develop the country’s healthcare system, food production, emergency preparedness measures, and the “Build, Build, Build” initiative, which may result in more job opportunities for Filipinos.

Senator Grace Poe believes Marcos would have a “concrete, comprehensive, and effective” answer to the country’s urgent concerns, including poverty, food sources, jobs, transportation, and education, as well as improved public services.
