Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno was surprised after the Principal of Tondo High School as the next President of the Philippines.
During the Cry of Tondo on Saturday, Principal Sonny Valenzuela of Tondo High School introduced Mayor Isko Moreno in a way that made the audience cheered.
“We have a lot of products, we have a lot of pride at isa na po dito ang pinakatampok nating panauhing pandangal… kadies and gentlemen ang pride of Tondo High School ang Mayor ng Maynila, the future President of the Philippines, Francisco Isko Moreno Domagoso,” Valenzuela said.
Moreno was shocked and smiling while he’s being introduced as the future President of the principal.
When he started his speech, he couldn’t do anything but to tease the Principal.
“Yari ka Sonny, hindi po totoo yon nako Diyos ko delikado yan,” Moreno said.
According to Moreno, he’s not really planning to run for a higher position because he wanted to serve the people of Manila first who elected him in public office.
He said that the people of Tondo made him enter politics as a councilor and also helped him to reach a higher position as Vice Mayor and Mayor.
“Siguro unfair na wala pa tayong nagagawa eh iiwanan ko na kayo, sabagay libre naman ang mangarap pero bago ko intindihin ang mga yan eh natutuwa ako sa kagustuhan ninyo pero hayaan ninyo munang magtrabaho ako,” he told the audience.
Moreno was urged many times to run for President in 2022 because of his popularity and performance as Manila Mayor, but he insisted that he wanted to complete his three terms first to complete his plan.
Moreno is also being compared to President Rodrigo Duterte who also became a Mayor and won the hearts of the majority during the 2016 presidential elections because of what he did in Davao City.
