President Rodrigo Duterte said he will be doing away with ceremonies including the turnover ceremony when his term ends in 2022.

“On the last day. I’ll just be formal about it,” he said during the inauguration of the Cavite Gateway Terminal on November 22.

“On the last day of my term, I will go down sans ceremony. Wala na ‘yung turnover-turnover. Bukas bakante na ‘yan, kung sinong may gusto, o sige,” he added. “Gusto ng Chief of Staff, sige dalin mo ‘yung – military junta na lang para mas madali.”

“Sabi ko, from now on „yung — ayoko ‘yang magbaba ako from a foreign trip mag honor-honor,” he added. “That’s why when I came back from Indonesia, sabi ko ‘yung commander lang ng Air Force diyan. Tawag nila TOG.”
