MANILA, Philippines — Presidential aspirant and administration bet Senator Christopher “Bong” Go on Monday said he is willing to undergo drug testing after his long-time boss President Rodrigo Duterte claimed a presidential candidate is a cocaine-user.

Go made the remark as 2022 tandem Senators Panfilo Lacson and Vicente Sotto III went to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to undergo voluntary drug testing.


“Anytime ako,” Go told reporters in a text message when asked if he would follow suit.

President Duterte earlier claimed a leading presidential candidate is doing cocaine. While he did not name names, the Chief Executive described the aspirant as popular and a scion of a rich family, but really a “weak leader.”


For its part, the Philippine National Police is trying to get additional information on the cocaine-using presidential aspirant as hinted by the President.

In a separate speech, Duterte called former dictator’s son Ferdinand Marcos Jr. a “weak leader,” as he rejected the idea of forming an alliance with her daughter’s political party, Lakas-CMD.
