Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte resigns as Davao City out of “delicadeza”, Sen. Trillanes, “that’s BS”
Due to various reasons, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte tendered his resignation from his post effective December 25, 2017.
The eldest son of the president made his announcement during a special session of the city council, which he was supposed to preside on Christmas Day.
Part of his statement mentioned about delicadeza after his name has been dragged and name dropped was the issue on smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of shabu from China.
“My parents never failed to remind me of the value of time-honored principle of delicadeza, and this is one of those instances of my life that I need to protect my honor and that of my children,”
He also mentioned about his public squabble with his daughter Isabelle. Isabelle went viral after her Malacañang pre-debut photoshoot went viral before having a word war against her father on social media.
He attributed his “recent unfortunate events in my life” to his failed first marriage to Lovelie Sumera and getting married at a very young age.
“The other person in this failed failed relationship is incorrigible and cannot be controlled. And I take responsibility for all that has happened as a result of a wrong decision to marry at a very young age,”
At the end of his resignation statement, he thanked the council and the entire Dabawenyos and said,”I look forward to the day that I will be able to serve our country again.”
Meanwhile, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV who accused Paolo Duterte in involvement to P6.4 billion worth of shabu from China to said that’s pure BS.
According to Inquirer’s article, the senator said through text,
“Delicadeza, seriously? Pinatulan nga nya yung anak nya publicly sa Facebook, tapos delicadeza?” Trillanes said in a text message.
“Besides, he has already been cleared months ago by Gordon’s committee de abswelto. So, that’s pure BS,”
“Also, he most likely needs more time to focus on managing his multi-billion peso businesses,”
