Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos wants every Filipino family to live in a house this 2019.
This was the politiko’s wish for the New Year, which she posted about on Facebook on Sunday, January 6.
Marcos said she is “alarmed” by the estimated 6.8 million backlog in housing units by 2022.
“Wish ko lang talaga na magkaroon ng sariling bahay at disenteng tirahan ang mahihirap nating kababayan simula sa 2019 at sa mga susunod pang taon!” said Marcos.
“Dapat walang Pilipino ang namamahay sa mga kariton, natutulog sa bangketa at walang disenteng tirahan,” she added.
