Bong Go assures public Pres. Duterte will finish his term despite health condition


According to the President's long-time aide Senator Bong Go, that President Rodrigo Duterte will finish and live beyond his term amid concerns raised about his health condition, said on a radio interview on Saturday.


Bong Go dismissed speculations on the President’s health following Duterte’s remarks about his Barrett’s illness, “Alam niyo, mahigit 22 years na kaming magkasama ni Pangulo at halos taun-taon ko nang naririnig ang Barrett’s esophagus na ‘yan, ” he said.

While he assured the public of the President's health condition, Go called on Filipinos to pray for the safety of the President as he is already old and vulnerable to COVID-19.

“‘Wag kayo mag-alala, pero samahan n’yo ng dasal, dahil vulnerable ang senior citizens. Gusto n’ya bumaba pero pinag-iingatan namin siya, pinapayuhan namin na sana po, mayor, Mr. President, makinig ka naman. Delikado talaga at ‘di natin ma-afford na mawalan ng lider sa panahon na ito,” Bong Go said.

“Siya ang timon, may nagsasabi na walang timon, eh ano ang Pangulo, tanggalin mo si Pangulo, eh di walang timon. Meron tayong lider na pinapakinggan ng tao,” he added.

The President is expected to fly back to Manila after temporarily staying in Davao City to attend a virtual conference with the King of Jordan to talk about the country's response against COVID-19.
