MANILA, Philippines — With only a year left in office, President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said there is “nothing” he considers as his legacy since he does not want to brag about what his administration has done.

“Nothing. All I want the people [to do] is to just look around. Hindi ko ipagyabang. Unang-una hindi ko ito pera. That’s not my money,” Duterte said during the inauguration of the Light Rail Transit 2 East Extension Project when asked what he will share as his legacy in his last State of the Nation Address (SONA).

“Ako, I will just mention what were the projects completed without necessarily attributing the miracle to me. Worker ako ng government. Nagtrabaho lang ako so wala ako dapat ipagmayabang,” he continued.

Duterte said the credit goes to officials who worked on the ground, mentioning Cabinet members like Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade and Public Works Secretary Mark Villar who were present at the event.

“Nandito lang ako to say that it’s complete but after that, I will shut up. It’s not my style to banner,” Duterte said.
