Special Assistant to the President, Christopher “Bong” Go was dubbed as the “national photo-bomber” during the 2016 elections because he was constantly captured behind or beside Duterte that irritated photojournalists, thus giving him the moniker.
Now that Go has full access in the cabinet, being President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s personal assistant, it became an avenue for him to give an insider update of the president and his activities, through his ‘selfies’.
His act delighted many netizens and ardent supporters of the president who were always longing for the freshest updates on the most powerful person in the land.
Defense Minister, Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, praised Go for his unselfish act, calling him the ‘Unselfish Selfie King’ on his Facebook post.
“Special Assistant to The President Bong Go is always there, never absent and always prepared. Serious but funny, the kind of person that quietly becomes the life of the party. Generous with his friendship, time and always ready to assist. He is a multitasker, busy with hundreds of urgent matters at any time of the day.”
“His selfies give us a glimpse of how a nation is governed. A glimpse of President Duterte. A glimpse of how anyone, no matter how humble of beginnings can dream big!
He is an asset to the administration and to the whole country.
We are proud to call him friend and brother. We are happy to see what your day is like so pls #selfiepamore
