Galante! Lord Allan Velasco treats Duterte to 5-star birthday feast


Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco has spared no expense to show how much President Rodrigo Duterte means to him.

Velasco has organized a five-star birthday bash on April 5 to celebrate Duterte’s 73rd birthday.

The 40-year-old lawmaker invited all of his colleagues in the House of Representatives to the celebration, which will take place at the Hotel Sofitel.

Duterte’s actual birthday is on March 28.

The grand birthday bash is just Velasco’s latest grand gesture for the President.

He also reportedly paid for 50 lechon baka for the celebration of Davao City Day last week.

As rumors swirl about a possible leadership coup in the House, lawmakers are wondering whether Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has been invited to the Velasco-sponsored birthday party— or whether he will attend.
