"Dili kaya sa present setup. Sige busy. Ingnang PLDT. Og dili, sila may akong sirhan. [laughter] Oo. Tinuod na. Di lang ko gustong manghambog. Naay utang sa gobyerno eight billion. Sukad pa na niadto. Way presidente nakapaningil... " Duterte said in a speaking engagement in Cebu.

PLDT Inc. Chairman Manny Pangilinan (MVP) has told mediamen that he does not know how PLDT owes the government P8 billion as stated by the President.

"I don't know. I checked internally, ano ba utang natin [what do we owe]? We don't know," MVP said at the groundbreaking ceremony for the NLEX-SLEX (South Luzon Expressway) Connector Road Project. "As far as we know, wala kaming utang [we don't have debts]. We pay our taxes regularly, on a quarterly basis - in fact in advance - so I don't know what he's referring to."
