Duterte tells Pacquiao to stay humble
President Rodrigo Duterte personally attended the 38th birthday celebration of boxing champ and Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao at the jampacked KCC Mall on Saturday, December 17.
“Senator Manny Pacquiao, happy birthday; to the wife, Jinky, happy birthday. The birthday of the husband is the birthday of the wife; the birthday of the wife is always the birthday of the husband,” President Duterte said in his message.
In his message, President Duterte advised Senator Pacquiao to remain humble.
“Stay humble. Mababa lang,” he said.
Sen. Pacquiao, for his part, thanked God and his family as well as the millions of fans for supporting him for what he has become today.
A touch of religiosity and the grand finale of a Mindanao–wide Bisaya singing competition marked Senator Pacquiao’s birthday.
