"Ang lapida Nograles para sa imong lungon dili para sa proyekto (the burial stone is for your burial ground not for projects)," Duterte said. He said the money spent for the projects is not the money of Nograles but people's money.
Duterte also criticized Nograles for including the name of his son Atty Karlo Nograles in all of the projects posters and billboards. Atty. Karlo Nograles said their names are plastered all over their projects for purposes of transparency.
"If this is the case then I will order my people to put my name on a billboard to be placed at the People's Park---but also to include the name of my driver and several of my friends," Duterte said.
