Presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte said if he is elected as Philippine President and neglects to stop criminality in three months, he will leave and give the administration to Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
The tough talking leader put forth the statement amid his visit at the Mariano Marcos State University in Batac City Ilocos Norte on February this year.
Duterte said, “If elected president, give me about three to six months I will get rid of corruption, drugs and criminality.”
In any case, he conceded that he needs everybody's participation keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish this objective.
“They say my timeline is ambitious, you know if I am already president, in the third month I am sitting there as president and I fail because nobody believes me, I really cannot do it even if you give me 10 years of rule," Duterte told.
“Eh mabuti magsibat na lang kayo, or ako. Kung hindi ko magawa 'yan sa tatlong buwan e 'di ibigay ko na lang kay Bongbong (If I fail in three months, better leave the country or I will step down and give the presidency to Bongbong),” Duterte added.
Duterte included that he has a bond with Bongbong in light of the fact that amid the term of President Ferdinand Marcos, Duterte's dad was an individual from the bureau as the secretary of general administrations.
He described his dad as a true “Marcos boy.”
“When Marcos first run for president, all Mindanao governors that time jumped to Liberal Party except two—(former Zamboanga del Sur) Governor (Bienvenido) Ebarle and my father (Vicente Duterte) who stood by Marcos all the way,” Duterte said.
“Speaking of loyalty and friendship, I am proud to say that my father was a close ally of President Marcos until his death,” he added.
