Duterte's birthday wish: time, strength to surmount the problems of the country

"I only ask God that give me a little bit of time, a little strength to surmount the problems of the country and that I’d be able, not really to solve, but maybe mitigate some of the rigors of governance and the problems."


During the news conference upon his arrival from an official trip to Thailand, President Rodrigo Duterte shared his 72nd birthday wish.

Duterte will celebrate his birthday this upcoming March 28.  The president just wanted time and strength because of his overwork duty as a president.

"So my wish really, my prayer to God is that he give me a bit more strength to do our – overwork time, because it is needed. Twenty-four hours is not really enough for the presidency, unless you want to sleep more than just about 4 hours," Duterte said.

"I only ask God that give me a little bit of time, a little strength to surmount the problems of the country and that I’d be able, not really to solve, but maybe mitigate some of the rigors of governance and the problems," Duterte added.

Duterte said that he don't want an expensive gift because he doesn't need it.

"If you have something for me, some are very expensive, you know, I do not need it anymore. And even if you give me a diamond for every finger, I cannot wear it. Otherwise, I’d be stupid, and even watches and all," Duterte said.

"Nakuha ko na lahat. I’ve reached the apex of my career. Material things which I cannot be of use to me. I am 72 years old."

Also, Duterte stated that he would spend his birthday with his family and to his new grandson Stonefish Carpio.

"I would be very glad to spend my time with my newest grandson Stone and the rest of my children and grandchildren. That would have been the greatest gift that I can ask in this planet," he said.
