President Rodrigo Duterte is giving himself until 2018 to see the effects of the changes he started in government.

Fresh from his return from the APEC Summit in Vietnam, Duterte said Sunday (November 12) that he wants government transactions to be online by next year.

He also said he wants to raise the country’s status.

“Kaya by next year, kung buhayin pa ako ng Panginoong Diyos, I want the country to go a notch higher — one bar, two bars higher than what we have now. That’s my only dream,” Duterte said.

“And after that I can retire or die immediately. Gagawin ko ‘yan,” he added.

Duterte again raised the prospect of staying in his post only until 2018 when he insisted his family does not have millions in undeclared wealth.

“Wala kaming milyon-milyon. Kaya sabi ko kung hindi ko kaya, aalis ako. Pero susubukan ko until maybe next year. At tignan ko talaga kung ano ang takbo ng bayan natin,” he said.
