It is not a secret how Tatay Digong as what Davaoeños fondly called Rodrigo Roa Duterte, considered as the best mayor of Davao City. Duterte’s reputation is very well known not only in Davao but throughout the country. Many were amazed at how Davao runs under his care.
A lot of citizens were glad that he is now the 16th and current president of the Republic of the Philippines and currently in the first half of his 6-year term. He was also dubbed as the best president the Republic of the Philippines could ever have. And since he assumed office, he has made several changes in the country. During President Rodrigo Duterte’s 4th State of the Nation Address, the 74-year-old politician promised to eradicate corruption in the government and reduce poverty in the country. He wishes to achieve that before his term ends.
On the other hand, some politicians were showing off their impressive ways of governing their towns or cities like these two most admired politicians today, Mayor Vico Sotto and Mayor Isko Moreno. This even made Sen. Ping Lacson’s voice out that politicians like Moreno made him think about retiring soon.
Not long ago, the YouTube Channel of UNTV uploaded a video. In the video, President Duterte stated his admiration towards Manila Mayor Isko Moreno during the oath-taking of the Malacañang Cameramen Association, Malacañang Press Corps, and the Presidential Photojournalists Association. He praised Mayor Isko for his effort to clean up, introduce new programs, and strictly implement ordinances in the city.
President Duterte even confessed that Mayor Isko is better than him.
“Mas mahusay siya kaysa ako, sa totoo lang, Oo, may nakita ako na mas mahusay ang resolve niya kaysa akin. Plus two ako sa kanya,” the 74 year old president said.
President Duterte’s statement about Manila Mayor Isko Moreno obtains a lot of applauding from the netizens. Here are some of their comments on the post:
@SAJEE TV: “Kung hindi dahil sayo tatay walang isang Isko Moreno….per ikaw insperasyon ng lahat”
@Aeron Guilar: “A Very humble and appreciative Man… kaya we so love and support u Mr.President”
