‘I can work with anyone,’ says Go on PDP-Laban’s support to a presidential candidate

MANILA — Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said that he can work
with anyone if elected as Vice President in the 2022 polls.

He emphasized that his priority is to pursue the continuity of
programs of the current administration and expand it further to
sustain the positive change that President Rodrigo Duterte has
started.

“I can work with anyone. Mula noon hanggang ngayon, walang pili naman
po ang pagseserbisyo ko sa tao. Rerespetuhin ko kung sino ang ihahalal
ng taumbayan sa pagka-pangulo,” said Go in a statement on Wednesday,
October 6.

Go has pledged to be a “working vice president” if the Filipino people
elect him, stressing that he will not merely be a “spare tire,” but
rather a public servant who ordinary Filipinos can rely on.

“At kung mabibigyan naman ako ng pagkakataon ng mga kababayan natin, I
will be a working Vice President na gagawin ang lahat para
makapagsilbi sa mga Pilipino hindi lang sa salita, kundi sa gawa.
Hindi ako magiging spare tire o reserba lamang,” the Senator said.

Go filed his Certificate of Candidacy in Pasay City on October 2,
accompanied by President Rodrigo Duterte. Go said that his decision to
run was motivated by his desire to carry on the Duterte
Administration’s legacy.

“Bilang opisyal at kandidato naman ng PDP-Laban, kaisa ako ng aking
mga kapartido sa aming hangaring maipagpatuloy ang mga magagandang
programa at makabuluhang pagbabago na nasimulan ni Pangulong Duterte,”
said Go.

The senator added that the party “will support a presidential
candidate who can push for the continuity that the people want.”

“Nabanggit ko rin noon pa na hindi ako tatakbong pangulo kung hindi si
Pangulong Duterte ang Vice President. Iyon ang dahilan kung bakit
nagdesisyon ako na tumakbo bilang Vice President,” he added.

Meanwhile, Go expressed his gratitude to Filipinos for their continued
support for him and the Duterte Administration. He assured them that
he would keep pushing for programs that would continue the change that
the present administration had started.

“Sa mga minamahal kong kababayan, maraming salamat po sa patuloy na
paniniwala at suporta ninyo sa amin ni Pangulo at sa buong
administrasyong Duterte,” said Go.

“Patuloy nating iparamdan sa bawat sulok ng bansa ang mga magagandang
programa at pagbabagong inumpisahan at ginagawa ng administrasyong
ito,” he added.

Go, on the other hand, explained that despite his vice presidential
bid, he remains focused on his duties as a senator and public servant
especially in assisting the government and the general public in
combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Pero sa ngayon, ayaw kong pag-usapan muna ang pulitika. Unahin muna
nating malampasan ang krisis na dulot ng COVID-19. Bakuna muna bago
pulitika. Maraming salamat po,” he concluded. (ai/mtvn)
