Despite being now the most powerful official in the Philippines right now, President Rodrigo Duterte seems that he still misses his old job and activities when he was still the City Mayor of Davao.
In a photo posted by Special Assistant to the President Christopher Bong Go, Duterte who’s still tired from his work, couldn’t resist going outside to check the current condition of the city that he managed for two decades.
According to Go, the President visited some houses at Barangay Bucana, Davao City and talked with the locals there to give advice and to hear their complaints.
He added that Duterte always wanders in Davao every day, a clue why the President was popular in Davao City and became undefeated in every election.
“Pangulong Duterte bumalik sa Davao City at bumisita sa mga bahay bahay na parang mayor uli. Gawain na namin sa nakaraang dalawampung taon ang mag-ikot para magbigay ng payo, tulong at makihalubilo sa mga tao sa barangay. Kuha po ito kaninang 5 am sa brgy. bucana.” Go wrote.
Ofcourse, Go didn’t forgot to took a selfie together with President Duterte and the neighborhood.
The post of Go received praises from the netizens, wishing that the President could visit their place also.
“Sana sir Christopher Bong Go pumasyal din kau dto samin sa samahang binhi angono rizal…. Ill prep breakfast for you sir n mr. President…” Netizen Dwight Estrella said.
“Reaching out to the people , Yan ang pinaka gusto Kong activity ng ating pangulo.” Dianne Ong remarked.
Duterte was first elected as Davao City mayor in 1988 as Mayor and never lose an election until he became the President.
He was known for being strict, but despite of that he maintained his popularity in Davao.
