Presidential peace adviser Jesus Dureza reveal the real reason why Filipina-American Millionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis wanted President Duterte to resign.
During an interview with I am Pinoy, Proud ako TV show, Dureza revealed that Fil-Am Millionaire was worried that President Rodrigo Duterte passed the Presidency to the defeated Vice Presidential Candidate Bongbong Marcos if ever that Leni loss on the recount.
“I think she was more concerned and I will disclose it without her permission– na she was more concerned about sa sinabi ni President Duterte na kung maging vice president si Bongbong Marcos, then magre-resign siya as president para ibigay niya kay Bongbong ang presidency.” Dureza told the talk show host Ethel Cantor Constantino
Dureza however, denied that President Duterte was serious in his statement about Bongbong Marcos that he may became the next Vice President.
“I dont think this President will relinquish anything to anyone, whether to Bongbong Marcos or Leni Robredo, on a silver platter. Binoto siya ng taumbayan kasi kailangan siya eh,” Dureza added.
Dureza met Lewis on December 9 in New York to talk about the issues about President Rodrigo Duterte, according to him they had a ‘LIVELY ANIMATED EXCHANGE ON PRESIDENT DUTERTE’
During President Duterte’s state visit to China, he joked that Bongbong Marcos may became the next Vice President if he ever wins the electoral protest that the defeated candidate filed against Vice President Leni Robredo.
“Si Bongbong… Kung manalo siya sa protest niya, baka bago ang ating bise presidente,”
That statement fueled the doubts of the opposition and the camp of Leni Robredo that President Duterte may supported the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos.
