President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Tuesday expressed his admiration to Manila Mayor Isko Moreno for his effort of rewiring and restoring the capital city of the Philippines.
During his speech after the oath-taking of the Malacañang Press Corps, Malacañang Cameramen Association, and Presidential Photojournalists Association, the Chief Executive lauded the Mayor saying that he is better than him.
“Bilib ako sa kanya kaya nanonood ako kung nagsasalita siya,” Duterte said.
“Mas mahusay siya kaysa akin, sa totoo lang. Oo, may nakita ako na mas mahusay ang resolve niya kaysa akin. Plus two ako sa kanya,” he added.
Isko became one of the trending topics on social media since he assumed office following his strict implementations of clearing up the streets of Manila. He is also known for his city ordinances such as curfew for minors, signed an agreement with fast-food chains to employ senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
