A lot of mixed reactions have been released since Davao City Mayor Rody Duterte announced that he is not running for presidency in 2016. However, one reaction stood out among the rest, which seemed to touch the southern strongman’s heart.
In a video spreading across the internet, Mayor Duterte is seen talking to Minda Obeidat, an overseas Filipino worker who expressed her sentiments after listening to his announcement last Monday.
The woman in the video was crying over her disappointment, and it seemed that the mayor felt her blues.
An avid supporter of Mayor Duterte, Obeidat said that her sentiments likewise comprise of OFWs across the globe. She also stated that she believes in the mayor’s capacities as president; by having him as the nation’s leader, the country would have a clearer vision towards good governance.
“I am asking God to help me decide,” the goodhearted mayor said to Obeidat during their conversation, giving off a spark of hope not only to the OFW, but to the rest of his supporters. “Maaasahan mo ‘yan.”
