Duterte says one presidentiable into cocaine

Republika

President Duterte has alleged that one of the candidates running for president in the 2022 elections is into cocaine.


While Mr. Duterte did not identify the particular individual, he dropped broad hints this presidential aspirant comes from a prominent family that is known because of its patriarch.


The president came out with the scorching disclosure last week during a speech in Oriental Mindoro.


However, many netizens weren’t too gung-ho about the serious allegations, and instead dared the President to have the cocaine-using presidential candidate arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency or the Philippine National Police if there is any concrete evidence to pin him/her down.


This person, according to Duterte who is unequivocally backing the presidential bid of his longtime assistant Senator Bong Go, is a “very weak leader, except for (his) name.”


He urged the voters it would be to their advantage to find out whom he was referring before deciding which candidate they will vote for in the May 9, 2022 elections.


Duterte, whose daughter is also running for vice president in the Lakas-CMD party, said he doesn’t quite understand why this person is very popular among the Fiipino electorate even if he/she does illegal drugs, and even has an excellent chance of clinching the Philippine presidency “hands down.”
