Manila, Philippines – In a birthday greeting on Wednesday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque used the word “blessed” in describing the country for having President Rodrigo Duterte as its “father”.

“On this day, we are reminded of how blessed we are as a nation to be headed by someone who is known for his strong political will, decisive leadership and compassion for his fellowmen. I join the people in wishing our President a happy birthday!” the spokesperson said.

Roque also said that being the presidential spokesperson is his “privilege”, noting that he saw firsthand how hardworking and dedicated the chief executive is.

“As his official spokesperson, it is my distinct privilege to work with the Chief Executive and (I) have seen firsthand his hard work and dedication in fulfilling his goal of building a nation where opportunities abound and where citizens are empowered to realize their aspirations,” Roque said.

He also pointed out that the president has inspired him and so many government officials to do ‘better’ for the people.

“His sense of duty and fidelity to the country motivate us to work even harder to spread his message of genuine and meaningful change to our people,” the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, Roque, wished the president “more healthy years ahead so he may continue to guide our people to unity and prosperity”.

The president has turned 73 today, March 28, and will be spending his special day with his family in Davao instead of throwing a party.

According to Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go, the chief executive would be content with receiving prayers and well wishes on his birthday.

“Mayor Rody will be celebrating his birthday at home, with his family. He has never been known to throw lavish birthday parties even when he was mayor of Davao City,” Go said in a statement. 

“Prayers from his well-wishers during his birthday would surely make him very happy,” SAP Bong Go said.
