DAVAO CITY – Presidential daughter and Davao City mayor Sara Duterte on Monday, March 1, addressed her supporters who are urging her to join the presidential elections in a video message.
Duterte expressed gratitude to her supporters and told them that she heard their call.
“Once again, I am grateful to all my friends who believe in me and who relentlessly expressed their call for me to run as president,” she said in a video message released by the City Information Office Monday morning.
“The unity and strength that you have shown gave me comfort knowing that I have friends like you,” Duterte added.
“Hindi na po kailangan ulit-ulitin natin ang panawagan sa mga tarpaulin at motorcade dahil naririnig ko po kayo at naiintindihan ko ang nasa puso ninyo. Dahil ako man ay may ganoon din na nararamdaman and because we all agree that we shall be the change we want to see in the world, let us show the world how it is appropriately done,” Duterte said.
She encouraged her supporters to instead use their resources in helping those who are in need.
“Let us instead use our power and resources to give food to those who are short on money and hungry and create jobs for those who lost their livelihood,” she said.
“I believe that even if we will not run for President, in our show of strength and unity, we are able to uplift many Filipino families in need,” Duterte added.
