Gov Marcos: We’ll die without pinakbet!
Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, during the situation briefing with President Rodrigo Duterte on September 16, said that Ilocanos will die if they cannot eat pinakbet.
The Ilocos Norte politiko was commenting on the high prices of vegetables in the market.
Marcos said the government should implement a price ceiling instead of a suggested retail price (SRP).
She explained that the prices of vegetables used to make the Ilocano pinakbet dish is already too high.
“Sa 80 at 100 pesos. Masyadong mabigat ‘yun. Hindi kami makakain ng pinakbet, mamamatay po kami,” Marcos said.
“Kaya nga hinihingi namin price ceiling na lang, huwag ng SRP. Nagiging katatawanan na lang po eh,” she added.
