President Rodrigo Duterte mentioned he won’t ever be heard asking favors, just because he doesn’t.
In a speech in Davao City Friday (August 11), Duterte mentioned he doesn’t speak to his officers over the cellphone for vital issues.
“I always call them sa Malacañan at harapan ‘yan. I do not convey or transmit messages,” he mentioned.
“Wala kang makuha sa akin. Hindi ako tumatawag sa kanila. Ayaw ko rin tawagan ako. If you want something, tell me about it diyan sa Cabinet meeting. Always official,” Duterte added.
Instead of giving orders, the President mentioned he directs businessmen who ask him for favors to the Cabinet official who may assist them.
“So there’ll never be a time na mahuli mo ako na I was overheard. I’m too bright for that actually,” he mentioned.
