Duterte believes Quiboloy stopped strong quake in Mindanao; wishes to have same power to stop corruption


President Rodrigo Duterte has wished that he has the “power” to stop corruption in government the same way that his friend evangelist Apollo Quiboloy was able to “stop” a strong earthquake in Mindanao.

“If I can only have that power doon sa mga kurakot na ‘stop.’ Kasi alam mo dito ang Pilipino hindi mo talaga madala sa pakiusap. The Filipino paradigm about his — a lot of them go to politics to make money, that’s the only thing that they do,” Duterte said in a speech in Davao City Friday night, November 22.

He made the statement after saying that he believes Quiboloy, head of the Davao City-based Kingdom of Jesus Christ, when the latter claimed that he was the one who was able to stop the magnitude 6.6 earthquake late October in Mindanao.

“Well, I believe in Pastor Quiboloy. When he says that — the man, he said that, ‘Stop.’ Eh kung nag-stop eh ‘di — what’s the, what’s the trouble? So stop it. Eh kung nagkataon talagang nag-stop,” Duterte said.
