President Rodrigo Duterte is celebrating Christmas in Davao with his family, a spokesperson from the Malacanang confirmed.
Harry Roque said that the chief executive will spend the holidays in his hometown but has no information yet if the latter will spend New Year’s Eve in Davao.
During his address to the nation, Duterte reminded its people of the importance of spending time with loved ones during special occasions.
“Mga kababayan ko malapit na ang Pasko kaya ako naman nandito sa Davao because alam ninyo na taga-Davao ako at dito yung pamilya ko,”
“Tradisyon naman sa Pilipino yan o sa lahat na you have to be with your family–birthdays, mga events sa buhay ng tao na may significance sa family,” he said.
