How Do You Think Bong Go for Senator???

Why the President wants Bong Go to be a senator? Is he qualified for the job?

Duterte: 'Bright' Bong Go would make a great senator
Published March 23, 2018 9:57pm
President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday hinted that his top aide, Christopher "Bong" Go, would seek public office soon.

"Look, he will win as senator...I will bet on it. He would make a great senator. He's really a bright man," Duterte said in his native Cebuano during the 16th founding anniversary of the Supreme Tribal Council for Peace and Development, Inc. in Davao City.

Duterte added Go, his chief aide for two decades now, is "pro-government" and has close ties with the military and police.

"Please don’t forget that guy at the back, who has slanted eyes, when the time comes," Duterte said, drawing applause from the audience that included Go himself.

The President earlier quipped during the 116th anniversary celebration of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) on February 6 that Go's appearance at the Senate inquiry on the controversial frigate acquisition project of the Philippine Navy, which was held two weeks later, can be his closest aide’s ticket to the Senate.

Go, in response, said he was not running as he vowed to serve Duterte until his last breath.

But Go's stance seemed to have changed recently when Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol, a former politician, expressed belief Go would make it to the top five of the Senate race.

On Friday, Go said: "He is my adviser, my mentor and my boss. I am very, very happy to be endorsed by Mayor Rody. Nawawala ang pagod ko kahit 24 hours magtrabaho. But it is still too early to talk about politics. Humbled, challenged and motivated, mag du-duty muna ako kay boss at sa kapatid nating Pilipino."

Go, in a statement last week, said he cannot ignore the support of the President and his supporters but insisted it was too early to talk about politics.

A campaign dubbed “Ready, Set, Go!” has already been formed by Go’s supporters to encourage him to run for a Senate seat in the 2019 midterm elections. —JST, GMA News

    Galawang trapo: SAP Go slammed for exploiting Angara’s death

    Special Assistant to the President Christopher Go is getting flak online for supposedly shamelessly exploiting the death of former Senator Edgardo Angara for publicity.

    Go, rumored to run for senator in next year’s polls, seized the chance to meet the grieving Angara family upon the arrival of the remains of the senator at the Villamor Air base Sunday, and shared his photos to the media. The senator’s body was reportedly airlifted from the Tagaytay family home to Manila.

    “So naabutan ko po doon at sumakay na lang po ako at sumama ako doon sa Villamor at doon po at sinalubong ng kaniyang may bahay at eldest daughter niya po. Naabutan ko po, nakatabi ko pa po iyong katawan niya,” the former media-shy official said in an interview transcribed by the Palace.

    “Actually po nasabi ko na po sa kaniya kanina at naiparating ko na po kay Ginang Angara ang pakikiramay ni Pangulong Duterte at sa kaniyang anak kanina, nabulong ko na po noong nag-landing po iyong helicopter,” he said.

    Some netizens however were dismayed with Go’s latest publicity stunt at the expense of a deceased public servant.

    “Pamilya na lang sana ng yumao ang nasa mga imahe. Kaso ganyan ka pabida si bong go,” @Harperblammo tweeted, reacting to his photos posted by GMA News on Twitter.

    “Baka mg selfie pa yan ah,” @thed_french said.

    @betseyklark tweeted: “The over-exposed BongGo is all over the place.”
