By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday called ex-President Fidel V. Ramos his favorite president “amongst all including the incumbent.”
Duterte made the remark during the book launching of Ramos’ book, “Prosper Thy Neighbor” held at the Manila Hotel.
“It is my pleasure to have been invited by President Ramos to give this keynote message on the launching of his book, ‘Prosper Thy Neighbor’. Indeed, we all want not only the Filipinos but our countrymen to be in a comfortable place,” the chief executive said during his speech.
“This is indeed another milestone in the civilian [prolific] writing career and one that is surely to inspire all of us for a long time. Please stay around for another 100 years. We need you,” he said.
Duterte also wished his “idol” Ramos the best of health and even more success in the future.
“I wish you good health, sir, and greater success in your undertakings. We will be forever grateful for your uplifting leadership and for your selfless service to the nation. Sir, my salute,” he added.
