With several weeks left in his term, President Duterte on Monday apologized for all his shortcomings as the country’s leader as he said six years would not be enough to finish all his projects.

Duterte said what he did “was the best” that his efforts could achieve.

“Kung kulang pa ‘yun, pasensya na po. Hindi ko na talaga kaya the things that I failed to do, mostly negligence or may mga shortcomings ako (If it’s not enough, I’m sorry. I really cannot do anything anymore, so the things that I failed to do, mostly it’s because of negligence or my shortcomings),” he said during the inauguration of the new Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Head Office Building in Pasig City.

“But talagang (But really, the time), 6 years would not be enough to finish all the projects,” he added

Without saying any other details, Duterte also thanked the country’s television networks for helping him in his journey.

“Binigyan n’yo ako ng honor maging presidente ng Pilipinas (You gave me an honor to be the Philippine president),” he said.
