Duterte makes early morning surprise visit in Davao City barangay
DAVAO CITY — President Rodrigo Duterte made a surprise visit to Barangay Bucana here early Sunday and chatted with the village’s residents, Special Assistant to the President Christopher Go.
In a Facebook post, Go said the President also provided financial help to unspecified number of residents in the village, where a large number of informal settlers reside, during the 5:00 a.m. visit.
But Go said there was nothing new with the President’s visit.
