Bong Go may change mind on presidency if Duterte runs for VP


Senator Bong Go has said that President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement that he is interested in becoming president is just a joke, however, he said he might change his mind if Duterte runs for Vice President.

“Ito ba si Senator Bong Go, pababa kami ng eroplano, sabi niya na: Sir may hihingin sana ako sayo na pabor. Sabi ko, ano? Sabi niya: Medyo it leaves a bad taste in the mouth malayo pa e, pero ikaw na lang ang magsabi sa kanila,” President Duterte said during the inauguration of newly constructed Port Operations Building (POB) at the Port of Dumaguete in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental on March 11. “Sabihin ko, ang totoo talaga, isang bagay lang, sabihin daw sa inyo gusto niya maging presidente.” 

With regards to the statement of the President, Senator Go said “I am very grateful for the trust given to me by the President. Salamat po sa tiwala pero alam naman po ng Pangulo na hindi talaga ako interesado. Biro lang ng Pangulo iyon.”


“Ang focus ko, mula noon hanggang ngayon, ay ang magserbisyo sa kapwa kong Pilipino. Please count me out sa usaping pulitika sa 2022,” he said.

However, Go said “magbabago lang siguro ang isip ko kung tatakbong Vice President si Pangulong Duterte.”
