Duterte will typically stamp the begin of his administration by climbing the same stairs later in the day.
"Sa aking batid ay maoobseerbahan naman ang tradisyon na ito at magkakaron ng pagkakataon na magkita si Pangulong Aquino at si President-choose Duterte bago manumpa sa tungkulin ang bagong Pangulo," Coloma said.
Coloma said Aquino will leave the nation with an enhanced economy supported by his organization in the course of recent years.
