Duterte gives P50,000 birthday gift to Marines personnel
By Prince Golez
Marines personnel celebrating their birthday this month will each receive P50,000 from President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte visited the Philippine Marine Corps to lead the turnover of military equipment and firearms Monday evening.
“I’ll send it to you by Wednesday,” the President told them.
Duterte asked the January celebrants, who also received a watch from the chief executive, to give the amount to their wives and families.
“Hindi pang-girlfriend yan. Dalhin niyo sa anak ninyo kung ayaw niyo,” he added.
