Duterte’s FB post: ‘I want to retire. I am tired.’
DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, in a Facebook post, reiterated that he was not interested in the presidency.
“A little over two years ago, I posted in the government website over the internet that I was not interested in the presidency. Nothing has changed. I am comfortable where I am now,” he said.
“If Inday Sara would want it, she has the choice of running in 2016 or the next election. Personally, the earlier the better. I want to retire. I am tired,” he added.
“Give the presidency to the one who wants it. I don’t,” the mayor said. SFM
