Duterte says he won’t be overheard asking favors: I’m too bright for that
President Rodrigo Duterte said he will never be heard asking favors, simply because he doesn’t.
In a speech in Davao City Friday (August 11), Duterte said he doesn’t talk to his officials over the phone for important matters.
“I always call them sa Malacañan at harapan ‘yan. I do not convey or transmit messages,” he said.
“Wala kang makuha sa akin. Hindi ako tumatawag sa kanila. Ayaw ko rin tawagan ako. If you want something, tell me about it diyan sa Cabinet meeting. Always official,” Duterte added.
Instead of giving orders, the President said he directs businessmen who ask him for favors to the Cabinet official who could help them.
“So there’ll never be a time na mahuli mo ako na I was overheard. I’m too bright for that actually,” he said.
