Duterte admits he went to Cardinal Santos: One hour ako dun!
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed that he visited the Cardinal Santos Medical Center on Wednesday for some tests.
Duterte made the admission on Thursday before members of the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association in Malacañang.
“Three weeks ago I had my endoscopy and colonoscopy. I was about to have a sana ngayong cabinet meeting yesterday but ‘yung reading ng aking ano, somebody advised my doctor just also to repeat and get some samples there, both dito ulit,” the chief executive said.
“So I stayed there in one hour sa Cardinal Santos,” he added.
During his speech, Duterte vowed to inform the Filipino people if he is diagnosed with cancer.
“If it’s cancer, it’s cancer. It it’s third stage no more treatment. I will no longer prolong my agony in the office,” the President said.
Earlier Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr. and Special Assistant to the President Bong Go both denied Duterte visited the hospital.
Duterte skipped his scheduled check turnover event Wednesday afternoon to have a “day off,” said Roque.
Go for his part said, “Walang katotohanan na-admit PRRD. Hindi yan totoo 100% po. Itataya ko ang buhay ko dyan, hindi totoo yan.”
