He mentioned this after he explained all the benefits for the soldiers and policemen which include: medical, housing, education, and the multi-million peso lease of Camp Bonifacio whose funds will reportedly go directly to the troops.

Duterte stressed that after his term, he is no longer eligible for to run under any public office. So, he is just trying his best to do what the Constitution says.

The president also thanked the soldiers and policemen for their sacrifice and the love they showed to the country.

“I know that you have this distinct honor of offering your life for the country. And that is why, sa akin naman is I do everything at least to make your life comfortable, for you and your family,” Duterte said. (R.G. A A. Go)
