Isko Moreno Says Everybody Dreams to be Appointed as President
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso said Wednesday, everybody has a dream of becoming a president of the country.
In an online forum of the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines, Manila Mayor said that all government officials, both elected and appointed, are dreaming of becoming a higher executive of the country as he was asked of he planning to run for “higher office” in 2022.
“There’s no point to lie. I have to be honest. Alam mo lalahatin ko, simula kagawad ng barangay, kagawad ng LGU o konsehal, vice mayor, mayor, governor, congressman, lahat ‘yan gusto maging Presidente,” Moreno said.
“Lahat kami, umamin na tayo pare-pareho,” he added.
He also pointed out that once you enter the public service and even others have not been elected or just appointed by the President, they all want to be in the position as President, based on the report of GMA News.
“Ano ‘yan eh, once na pinasok mo ‘yung public service, iba nga di pa naeelect, naappoint lang gusto ng mag-Presidente… I think it’s quite fair for everybody to dream to be the President,” Moreno said.
Isko, however, said becoming president was a matter of destiny. “Lahat ng nagplano niyan, natalo. Lalo na ‘yung mga naging atat, natalo rin. Kusang dumadating ‘yan atsaka tao ang nagbibigay diyan,” Moreno said.
But as of now, Moreno said that he would just focus on addressing the concerns of Manila City amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, adding that he owes a lot to the people of Manila for being in his position.
“May pandemya ngayon eh. Diba dapat ang focus naming lahat, kung sino man ang nagaasam diyan sa ibabaw, ang focus eh tutukan itong pandemya. Ako I would rather focus on this,” Moreno said.
“For now, let me do my job. I owe it to the people of Manila. I owe them a lot,” he added.
