Inuulit ko po, hindi po ako interesado tumakbo sa senado sa 2019. Magsisilbi po ako kay Mayor Duterte hanggang kamatayan, kung hindi man ako mauna [My answer to Speaker Alvarez’s invitation: I repeat I am not interested in running for senator in 2019. I will serve Mayor Duterte until death, if I don’t go first],” SPA Bong Go said.
This was the answer of Special President Assistant Bong Go to House Speaker Alvarez after offering him to join the PDP-Laban’s Senatorial slate in next year’s election.
But Bong Go teases that maybe he will change his mind if the house leader gets him as a wedding sponsor.
““Pero kung tutuparin ni Speaker Alvarez ang pangako nyang kunin akong ninong sa kasal nya, baka mag bago po isip ko [But if Speaker Alvarez fulfills his promise to get me as godfather in his wedding, I might change my mind,” he said.
It was President Duterte who first joked Bong Go to run as a Senator Candidate in light of his upcoming appearance at the Senate Inquiry into the Navy’s frigate procurement deal.
Alvarez earlier said, he convinced the President Assistant to rule the party for his importance as a candidate from Mindanao.
