President Rodrigo Duterte revealed that her daughter Sara ‘Inday’ Duterte-Carpio attempted to resign as Davao City Mayor.

During his speech to the Filipino Community at Nay Pyi Daw, Myannmar, Duterte said that her daughter submitted a resignation letter last July 1, 2016; a day after she took her oath of office as mayor of Davao City.

Duterte admitted that her daughter was pressured to run into office for the second time,  in order to prevent the family’s hardwork in developing Davao to be wasted or fall into incapable hands.

Sara first became Davao City mayor last 2010 until 2013. Her father, meanwhile, was in office for almost two decades.

“Alam mo pagka-July 1, nag-file ng resignation. Nandiyan kay Bong (Go). Sige sabihin niya sa akin na takbo ako Mayor. Nag-oath kami, kinabukasan nag-file ng resignation. Sabi niya hanap ka na lang ng mayor mo. Nandiyan on file, tignan mo. First time ko sinabi in public. Ngayon lang. Talagang hindi ako papayag na maiwan ko ang Davao. Sayang pinagod ko. Ayaw niya, pero Inday will be good sa Davao. I don’t know in any other office.”
