‘Nagmamadali kayo masyado,’ Bong Go tells Duterte’s critics
President Rodrigo Duterte’s top aide, Secretary Christopher “Bong” Go, has advised critics of the administration to just wait for their time as he promised that both of them would return to Davao when the President’s term ends in 2022.
Go, special assistant to the President, lamented during the hearing of the Senate committee on national defense how “fake news” were being used in an alleged attempt to sow intrigues among the military and President.
“President Duterte is mandated by the people. Nagsalita na ang taumbayan. Antayin na lang ninyo ang inyong panahon. Nagmamadali po masyado kayo, 2022 uuwi na kami ng Davao,” he said.
Go cited “fake news” directed at the President and his administration to provoke people to launch another Edsa revolt.
“Inuudyukan ang Piipino na mag rebolusyon kasi malapit na yung Edsa anniversary,” he said. “Alam nyo nagsalita na ang Filipino with 16 million votes hanggang ngayon ang popularity ni President Duterte 80 percent kasi alam ng tao nagtatrabaho sya. Hindi pa ba sapat ito na mandato ng Pilipino?”
“Inuudyukaan nila na mag Edsa 3. Sa tingin nyo ba magpapaloko pa ang mga sundalo? Alam naman nila na mahal ng Pangulo ang kasundaluhan,” Go said.
The official then reiterated his call for the Senate to continue its probe on fake news and his request to invite Rappler and Inquirer for reporting his alleged involvement in the P15.7 billion frigate deal issue.
“Para na rin kayong nakapatay ng tao. Makonsesya naman kayo. Biktima ako dito,” he said. /cbb
