Apr 19, 2017 @ 17:40

President Duterte is not interested in accepting an honorary degree from the University of the Philippines.

Duterte thanked the UP Board of Regents for the offer but would decline such recognition as part of his “personal and official policy.”

“With due respect to the University of the Philippines, I do not accept even when I was mayo, hindi tayo tumatanggap. As a matter of personal and official policy, I do not accept awards. Wala sa pagkatao ko,” Duterte said in a press conference during his visit to Bohol on Wednesday (April 19).

“Di ko nirereject to use the word ‘reject’ is not good. I simply declined,”he said.
