“Usually ang estudyante pinapalitan yung teacher, eh si Teddy Boy Locsin, siya po ang teacher, siya po ang mentor, papalitan niya po yung estudyante, so isang karangalan sa akin at magandang choice,” Cayetano said in an ambush interview on Wednesday.

(Usually it is the student who replaces the teacher. Teddy Boy Locsin is the teacher. He is the mentor. He will replace the student. It is an honor for me. He is a good choice).

“Ang pangulo marunong talagang mamili ng mga cabinet members,” he added.

(The President knows how to select the members of his Cabine).

Locsin will replace Cayetano, who is seeking a seat in the House of Representatives in the 2019 elections. /muf
