Whole day siyang nagtrabaho! Palace on Duterte’s rescheduled North Cotabato trip: No health issue
By Prince Golez
Malacañang said the postponement of President Rodrigo Duterte’s trip to North Cotabato had nothing to do with his health.
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo issued the remark Thursday after the Presidential Communications Operations Office announced that Duterte’s North Cotabato visit was rescheduled.
The President was supposed to hold a dialogue with farmers in Pigcawayan town on Friday.
“Alam ko kahapon whole day siyang nagtrabaho. Paperwork. ‘Yun, baka hindi niya natapos yung kanyang mga binabasa. Pwede naman i-reschedule eh. Kumbaga ni-reschedule lang so nandoon pa rin ‘yun,” Panelo said in a media briefing.
“It has something to do with what he was doing yesterday. He was reading briefs, documents pouring over them,” he added.
Monday evening, Duterte went home to Davao City after he attended the wake of the late John Gokongwei Jr. and Lucio “Bong” Tan Jr. He will work from there to lessen his workload.
