April 29, 2022

Electing former Secretary of National Defense Gilbert (GIBO) Teodoro to the Senate could bring a renaissance in the upper house, President Rodrigo Duterte said in a recent one-on-one interview with the senatorial candidate.

Pres. Duterte said Gibo Teodoro’s experience in both public and private sectors will make him a public servant that Filipinos will need for the betterment of the future generation.

“’Pag nandiyan ka (sa Senado), magbabago. We will have a renaissance in the Senate,” Pres. Duterte said, highlighting Gibo Teodoro’s knowledge and expertise of laws, being the 1989 bar top notcher as well as his untainted service in the Department of National Defense.

Pres. Duterte described Gibo Teodoro as a senatorial candidate who can bring development to the country with his advocacies in providing efficient government services, ease of doing business, creating jobs and livelihood, health, peace and order, infrastructure, and digital connectivity for Filipinos.

“You have that gift – ‘yong magsalita ka, makikinig lahat,” the Chief Executive said. “Kasi alam nila ang stature mo. Mataas ka talaga (sa kaalaman). One of the few ngayon. They could not match your knowledge and your expertise.”
