The Presidential Adviser on Poverty Alleviation Secretary Larry Gadon admitted that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. was an addict, but not like what former President Rodrigo Duterte was alleged.
In an interview, Gadon, who’s a close ally of Marcos, said that the chief executive was addicted to serving the people.
“Si Presidente Bong Bong Marcos ay isang adik… adik sa pagmamahal sa bayan, adik sa pagtrabaho, at adik sa pag-asikaso ng mga tungkulin ng pamahalaan, adik sa pagmamahal sa mga Pilipino,” he said.
In a serious note, the disbarred lawyer said that Duterte should stop involving the nation on his problems with Marcos.
Gadon also expressed his support to constitutional change.
“Panahon na ng tunay na pagbabago tungo sa pagunlad! Ang Cha Cha ay hindi layunin na palawigin ang termino ng presidente o ng sinoman na opisyales, ito ay panlilito at paninira lamang,” he stated.
It can be recalled that Duterte claimed that Marcos was included on the PDEA’s watchlist, which the agency quickly denied.
