DAVAO CITY, June 27 (PNA) — With just three days to go before formally assuming office as the 16th President of the Philippines on Thursday, outgoing Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is set to attend Monday’s flag-raising ceremony here to bid goodbye to City Hall workers.
During the past few days, city administrator J. Melchor Quitain and some department heads have been preparing for Monday’s flag rites, even refurbishing Osmeña Park and repainting the Durian Fountain here.
Duterte is leaving the city to his daughter, Mayor-elect Sara Duterte, who already took her oath of office last June 22. Sara served as mayor for one term when Duterte was vice mayor from 2010 to 2013. (PNA)
