President Duterte said that all he needs is evidence proving that his son Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte is involved in corrupt practices in the Bureau of Customs (BOC).
This after the the Presidential Son’s name surfaced during the House of Representatives’ hearing on the P6.4-billion illegal drug shipment from China which passed through the Bureau last May, 2017.
“If my son was really into it or is in there, all you have to do is to produce the paper–because there are two ways of evidence–oral pati documentary,” Duterte said in a speech in Davao City Friday night.
“Just give me an affidavit and I will step down as President of this Republic. And that is my commitment to you now. That is my word,” he added.
Duterte said he can’t ever tolerate corruption, especially since he himself is not used to a lavish lifestyle.
“Hindi talaga ako papayag niyan. Tutal, nabuhay lang rin ako sa ganito-ganito, ‘yung tamang-tama lang,” he said.
