He appealed to the public to give his children a chance to serve the people and the country, with Sebastian Duterte running as Davao City Mayor, Sara Duterte seeking the Vice Presidency, and Paolo Duterte running as Davao City’s First District Representative. He promised his fellow Davaoeños that he will continue to oversee Davao City as a civilian after his term ends, and assured them that he will remain a servant of the people.
The Chief Executive also made it clear that he does not support any presidential candidate.
