DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – He is the man that is always seen with President Duterte. Wait, make that former Mayor Duterte.
It was never a surprise that Bong Go has been appointed presidential special assistant with the rank of Secretary.
No one is sure what his voice sounds like because he never speaks — at least not in public.
But today, Duterte received the news he most feared: Go is resigning as his special assistant.
The reason? Well, Go would go all the way to support Duterte but apparently, he didn’t expect to be in harms way, asked to be garbed in military uniform, carrying a gun and accompanying the president to fight the terrorists in Marawi City.
It was the last straw for Go. Loyalty has its limits.
