Sara Duterte backs Bong Go’s ‘senatorial bid’



In an interview, Davao City Mayor Sarah Duterte said that she is “more than willing” to support Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Bong Go should he decide to run for Senator in 2019.
Mayor Duterte is confident that Bong Go is highly qualified to run for public office citing his current experience and the many years he has been alongside the President as his vital constituent. She also stressed that it shall be her pride and honor to have someone from Davao as Senator.
This revelation started out from a joke made by President Duterte after seeing Bong Go acquit himself in the Senate Hearing involving the Php 15.7 Billion Philippine Navy Frigate Project issue leaving Senator Antonio Trillanes IV walking out the in the middle of the probe.




“Siguro po, nakikita niya kung paano ako magsilbi since siya nga po 'yung inspiration ko as public servant at kung papano kami magtrabaho, siguro nakita niya before and after the Senate hearing, napag-usapan namin at medyo nagbibiro siya at na-me-mention niya about sa nangyari sa Senate. Sabi niya, you did a sterling performance sa Senate," he said

Bong Go, however, is yet to finalize his decision since “it is too early to talk about politics”, he said citing both the President and the Davao City Mayor are his inspirations and are good examples of genuine public servants.



In a press statement, Go said: "Kahit maaga pa po pag-usapan ang politika, ni di ko naisip ang tumakbo ngunit sa mga salitang binitawan ng ating mahal na Mayora Inday Sara, ngayon pa lang nakakataba ng puso at nakaka wala ng pagod kahit 24 oras akong mag trabaho (Even if it is too early to talk about politics, I did not think of running but with the words of our Mayor Inday Sara, it touched my heart and all exhaustions vanished even if I work 24 hours)"

With the Dutertes as his inspiration and source of strength, Bong Go dedicates his entire life serving the nation and is ‘humbled’ by the recommendation given by Mayor Sarah.

Mayor Sarah also said that she is open to endorse other would-be candidates especially those that have valuable contribution to the current administration.
