Boss ko si ma’am! Duterte admits owing ‘a lot’ to GMA
The appointment of several Arroyo-era officials to President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration shouldn’t come as a surprise given how high he holds former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in regard.
Duterte on Thursday (December 7) admitted that he graced the Kapampangan Food Festival Thursday upon Arroyo’s invitation.
“Alam naman ninyo ang boss ko si President Arroyo. And I know that you know that I owe a lot sa kanya. Though I was not really a member of the Cabinet or what not. But I was a very close confidant,” he said.
Duterte, who was Arroyo’s adviser on law and order, said his discussions with the former President on state affairs remain relevant.
“We talked about state affairs and —particularly law and order. Kaya nga naman noong ako ang naging Presidente law and order pa rin ang napag-usapan ngayon marami na akong kaso,” he said.
Duterte joked that he would like to be jailed at a detention facility in Pampanga.
“I would not mind you serving me with the food that you are — you have the extreme expertise,” he said.
