During her live program over Davao City Disaster Radio (DCDR 87.5), the presidential daughter assured the Filipino people that her septuagenarian father is in good shape although she admitted that they have not talked lately.

The lady mayor refused to discuss any further information, saying that she was not the right person to update the public about President Duterte.

“Let’s just wait for his office, the Office of the President, to give such an update about him,” she said.

She added that the people around President Duterte are extra cautious of their movement in Malacañang after “99 members of PSG (Presidential Security Group) tested positive (for COVID-19).”

She said the 76-year-old President belongs to the “most vulnerable group.”

The mayor said her recent four-day trip to Singapore from April 6 to 10 had nothing to do with the “health status” of the President.

Although her reason for flying to Singapore was for “personal health management,” she added that she is “perfectly healthy.”

She revealed that her next trip to Singapore is scheduled in October and April 2022.
