ASIDE from good health, Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson wished President Rodrigo Duterte on his birthday the ability to overcome any possible sickness the Chief Executive is experiencing due to the weight of his job as president..
“Better health, kasi we can’t afford na magkaroon ng destabilization on the death of a President. Syempre, buhay din yan, sana maging healthy. Kung anuman ang dinaramdam magamot from head to foot,” Lacson said when asked by reporters about his birthday wish for the President during yesterday’s Kapihan sa Senado.
The senator then clarified that he is not insinuating that the President is currently sick and just wanted to wish him the best of health.
“No, I’m not saying that. Sana lang maging healthy. Continue doing the good things and do away with bad things,” Lacson said.
What he admired best in Duterte, Lacson said, is the President’s political will especially in going after tax evaders who have been cheating the government for a long time.
Other senators including Ralph Recto, Sonny Angara and Joel Villanueva also wished the President the best of health.
Recto added that he wished the President to be successful in the endeavor to give jobs and other opportunities to Filipinos.
“We wish him good health and happiness and more time with his family,” Angara meanwhile said.
Villanueva on the other hand used a verse from 3 John 2 of the Bible for his wish for Duterte. It read, “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”
