Former President Benigno Aquino III warned about the prospect of having a leader like Adolf Hitler should then-Davao City mayor Rodrigo Duterte win the presidency in a last-ditch effort to convince voters to choose his anointed successor.

In his speech at the Daang Matuwid Coalition’s miting de avance last May 7, Aquino stressed the importance of choosing the right leader for the country.

He urged people to learn from history and remember that those who turn a blind eye to oppression would be the next to become oppressed.

“Sinulat po ng butihin pastor na ito, upang ipaliwanag kung paanong napunta at nanatili sa poder si Hitler, na nagdulot nga ng napakalalim na pagdurusa sa napakaraming tao. Ang dahilan: Nakalimutan ng iba na ang tadhana nating lahat ay magkakaugnay,” Aquino said.

“Nawa’y matutuhan po natin ang aral ng kasaysayan: Mas marami pa rin po tayo. Alalahanin natin: Ayon sa mga survey kanilang binabandera, 30 porsyento daw po ang pabor kay Ginoong Duterte; 70 porsyento naman ang ayaw sa kanya,” he added.

“Kailangan po nating magkaisa; nasa pagkakaisa po ang susi upang maiwasan ang kadiliman, at madala ang ating bansa sa maliwanag na kinabukasan,” he said.

Despite other presidential aspirants’ efforts to attack his record and personality in the final stretch of the campaign season, Duterte won the presidential race with over 16 million votes.
