Duterte shares proof Tugade’s a rich kid: Nasa law school pa lang may kotse na!


President Rodrigo Duterte believes Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade can never be corrupt because he’s already wealthy to begin with.

As proof of Tugade’s wealth, Duterte shared on Wednesday (March 8) that the Transportation Secretary already had a car of his own when they were studying law at the San Beda College of Law.

“Tugade is a billionaire — high — College of Law pare — man ‘yan kami sa law school may kotse na ‘yan, de-kotse na ‘yan, siya may — may maraming pera,” he said in a speech in Tarlac.

“He learned his ropes sa Delgado Shipping, when he retired he put up his own ano. Ilocano ‘yan, taga-Cagayan,” Duterte added.

Tugade is the owner of Perry’s Group, which has business interests in logistics, trucking, equipment leasing, fuel distribution, and retail.
