President Duterte endorsed anew the senatorial candidacy of his former longtime aide, calling Christopher “Bong” Go “an ideal critic.”
The President mentioned Go in passing as he spoke at the inauguration of the Cavite Gateway Terminal in Tanza, Cavite, on Thursday.
“Bong Go, by the way, is running for senator,” Duterte said.
“Please do not forget him. He’s good,” the President said of his former special assistant and most trusted aide.
Go was in the President’s employ for almost 20 years, acting as his longtime aide starting when Duterte was still mayor of Davao City and until Mr. Duterte assumed the presidency in 2016.
Last month, Go quit his position to file his candidacy for senator in the 2019 mid-term elections.
