GMA says her dad-Pres. Dado would have urged Filipinos to support Duterte

The Late President Diosdado Macapagal would support President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

During the 108the anniversary of the ninth President of the Philippines- Diosdado Macapagal, her daughter, herself the 14th President of the Republic Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said she can say for a fact that her father would call on all Filipino’s to “help our country” and way of doing so is to have faith in the Duterte leadership.

“The President has been president for two years, let’s support him and give him a chance,” Arroyo said.

Gloria’s elder sister former Pampanga Vice Governor Cielo Macapagal-Salgado made a statement during the commemorative rites that their father would have wanted Filipinos to unite behind its leader.

“Bigyan natin siya ng pagkakataon na masolusyunan iyong mga sinisikap niyang masolusyuunan (Let us give him the chance to solve what he is trying to solve),” Arroyo said.

GMA reiterates her confidence and trust to the brand of leadership Duterte brings to the country, one of which is that he can easily address any destabilization plots against his administration.

“The last thing he needs is a comment from the peanut gallery,” GMA said when asked what to advise Duterte in the wake of alleged plans to overthrow his presidency.

Gma recalled and shared during her time when she faced a similar ouster plot, Duterte then a local official helped her.

“Alam niya kung ano ang gagawin niya, so I wouldn’t want to add to the unsolicited advice to him,” she said.
