Former Defense Secretary Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro seems ready to throw his hat into the political ring once again after suffering defeat in the 2010 presidential elections.
Teodoro teased about his return to politics by changing the cover photo of his Facebook page to a green check, followed by the year 2022. A bigger version of the picture had the word “share” scribbled.
The Arroyo-era Defense Secretary has been out of the limelight since he lost to then-Senator Benigno Aquino III in the 2010 presidential race.
Teodoro boasts of impressive credentials, graduating with a law degree from the University of the Philippines. He topped the 1989 bar examinations, has a Master of Laws degree from Harvard University, and also passed the State Bar of New York.
In 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte offered Teodoro to return to his old post of Secretary of National Defense but it was turned down by the latter.
