President Rodrigo Duterte is “cancer-free” and can finish his term, his top aide said Tuesday.
Special Assistant to the President Bong Go is the latest among high-ranking administration officials to attest to the health of the President, amid rumors that the 73-year-old chief executive could be suffering from a serious ailment.
“Sorry to disappoint his critics, the President is very healthy and in high spirits. I know for a fact that he is cancer-free,” Go told reporters.
“He will finish his term and live beyond 2022. Tuloy lang po ang aming trabaho. Salamat po sa inyong concern sa kaniyang kalusugan. I assure you, there is nothing to worry about.”
