Former President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III refused to assess to President Rodrigo Duterte’s first two years.
Aquino, who got interviewed by the media, said that he could not give an assessment to the President because too many things happened during the first two years of the Duterte administration.
“Alam mo sa dami ng pwedeng sabihin, parang mahirap sabihin sa dami,” Aquino told the reporters.
He also said that instead of him, the people should be the one who give the grade to the President.
“If I will make a comment, sasabihin self-serving, I’d rather have the people to tell me, the people who I refer as my bosses then, what do they think kesa ‘yung ako ang magsasabi,” ” Aquino said.
During the interview, Noynoy has also been asked on his thoughts about the proposed amendment of the constitution.
However, he refused to comment because he’s not yet seeing the copy of the proposed constitution.
Yesterday, Bureau of Investigation filed a case against Aquino, which prompted the former President to appear in public.
Aquino also said that he would not attend the third State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, explaining that he prefers to watch the event in his home to avoid distraction.
“Maraming distraction, among them yung mga kabaro ninyo tatanungin what do you expect bago mag-umpisa, what do you think. Habang nakikinig ka sa paligid mo may nagtitsismisan, nagkokomento, madidistract ka para maintidhan ‘yung sinasabi sa SONA,” Aquino said.
He explained that he wanted no distraction in watching SONA because he believes in the importance of the message that would be delivered by the President.
“Napakahalaga ng SONA para sabihin yung pinanggalingan at saan patutungo. Mahirap naman, imbes na makhha mo ‘yung sinasabi e paputol putol dahil sa dami ng distractions, tuloy ay hindi mo maintindihan kung ano talaga yung sinasabi, hindi mo makita ‘yung direction na pupuntahan,” he said.
