Can’t decide what to gift Duterte on his birthday? Villar gives president 2 house and lots like candy
Bilyonaryo Manny Villar used to have a problem what to give President Rodrigo Duterte on his birthdays.
But the third richest Filipino has finally solved what to give a man who probably has everything: a house and lot for the President to give away.
In a speech in South Korea, Duterte said: “Pag birthday ko (March 28), sabihin niya kay Bong: Anong ibigay kay mayor? Sa akin. So hirap man ‘yan sila. Hirap mag-ano (decide on the gift).”
“Sabi niya, mag-bigay na lang ako house and lot para ibigay niya kung sino, kanino niya gusto. So there was this — I think it was the anniversary of the Army o change of command o graduation. So ‘yung valedictorian ng graduating class, binigay ko sa kanya.” he added.
But Duterte said Villar’s gift caused a bit of a problem because he would have to give the same house and lot package to the police corps.
“Ang problema, the following day graduation ng pulis. Kay nalaman man nila doon. Sabi ko, ‘Bong maghingi ka pa ng isa’. Tutal ako basta hindi para sa akin… So nagbigay si — nagmagandang loob, nagbigay siya ng another one,” he said.
