Cabinet members advise President Rodrigo Duterte to slow down as he’s working way too hard.
In a media interview on Friday, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Duterte should head off on a vacation for at least two weeks to refuel his energy.
“I think he should not be spending too much time attending to all his activities at the sacrifice of his health. He’s working too hard and we told him so, Mr. President bakasyon ka naman at least two weeks. Tambak ang trabaho,” said Panelo.
The chief presidential legal counsel added that Duterte, who admitted taking sleep medication, often complains of feeling tired.
“Wala syang nararamdaman kundi palaging pagod. He is always moving. Kulang nga ang tulog kasi nga biglang merong (activity in the) morning. Di ba night person siya? Tapos gagawing speaker alas otso ng umaga. Talagang mahihirapan siya.
“Kami kasi nakikita namin talagang masyado siyang masipag. We can hardly catch up with his work schedule,” he said.
