‘Bright boy’ Umali wishes good health for 73-year-old Duterte
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali wishes President Rodrigo Duterte a good health for his 73rd birthday.
Umali, in greeting the President through his official Facebook page, posted a throwback video wherein Duterte described him as a “bright boy.”
The Oriental Mindoro solon, also chairman of the House committee on justice, said that it was an honor to be called as such by no less than the President.
“Isang pagbati ng maligayang kaarawan ang nais kong iparating sa magiting na pinuno ng ating bansa!,” said Umali.
“Dahil buong bansa ang nagkaisa upang magdiwang ngayong araw, nais kong mag-#throwback sa isa sa mga moments namin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa 35th Anniversary ng Partido Demokratiko Pilipino (PDP) Laban noong 2017,” he added.
“Malaking karangalan ang matawag na “bright” ng isang tulad mo, Pangulo,” he also said.
Umali said that all he wants for Duterte is to have a good health as he faces the country’s problems.
“Nawa’y magkaroon ka ng malusog na pangangatawan upang mas maayos mo ang mga suliranin ng ating bansa. Kami po ay nandito upang magbigay ng tulong at suporta!,” he said.
