President Duterte may be old but has not supposedly stopped working for the nation.
Senator Bong Go has vouched for the 75-year-old President’s work ethic, saying there is no rest for the hardworking leader.
The President’s former assistant rejected rumors that Duterte flew to Singapore for medical treatment last weekend. Go, often seen with the President despite his Senate duties, said Duterte has been in Davao City the whole time.
“Ang Pangulo po ay nagtatrabaho lang. Nasa Davao po siya at ginagampanan po niya ang kanyang tungkulin bilang Pangulo. In fact, halos ay wala nga pong pahinga ang ating Pangulo dahil nga mino-monitor niya ang sitwasyon,” Go said in an interview with Erwin Tulfo on August 18.
He said the public has seen the President looking healthy when he delivered his public address on People’s Television channel 5 on Monday, August 17.
“Bagama’t kailangan niya rin pong umuwi ng Davao upang tingnan na rin po ang sitwasyon sa Mindanao ay makikita ninyo po na kagabi ay napaka-healthy naman po ni Pangulo,” he said.
“Bagama’t 75 years old na po ‘yon ay talagang kayod kalabaw pa rin ‘yan para makapagserbisyo sa kapwa Pilipino,” he said.
