Ayaw sa aliw: Duterte shuns gambling venues even for concerts
President Rodrigo Duterte hasn’t been to a gambling venue in his entire life.
In a speech during the launch of Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation’s (PAGCOR) Game On! All In! for Nation Building Thursday (January 11), Duterte said he avoids going to places of gambling as a matter of choice.
“Personallty I do not gamble. I do not even go to gambling houses. Sabi ko nga hanggang ngayon hindi pa ako nakapasok diyan sa mga lugar ninyo,” he said.
Duterte said he has avoided going to gambling places even for harmless events such as concerts.
“I’ve been mayor for 23 years, ni minsan hindi ako nakapasok ng… May mga minsan programs sila mga artista. So I usually beg off because as I said a matter of personal predilection maybe. Ayaw ko talaga,” he said.
