Senator Bong Go doesn’t mind being known as the Senate member with the second smallest net worth in 2018, next to Senator Leila De Lima.
Go, President Rodrigo Duterte’s former long time aide, said he is more concerned about the quality of his service than his net worth.
‘Yun naman pong dineclare ko, ‘yan po ang aking ari-arian sa ngayon at noon pa ‘yun. Basta para sa akin, ako po ang pinakamayaman sa serbisyo,” he said.
Go declared a net worth of P15.508 million as of June 30, 2019.
The neophyte senator said his ranking among senators when it comes to net worth is insignificant.
Referring to his richer colleagues, Go said: “Ayoko pong makipag-habulan sa kanila. Ang akin lang is payamanan na lang ng serbisyo sa Filipino. Ganito, pasipagan na lang.”
Senator Cynthia Villar, whose husband is the richest man in the country, topped the list of senators with the largest net worth with P3.5 billion.
She is followed by Senator Manny Pacquiao, whose net worth is P3 billion.
