President Rodrigo Duterte has disclosed that Ramon Tulfo, his special envoy to China, did not want to stay in a Davao City hotel haunted by ghosts.
Duterte bared this in his speech during the recent oath-taking of Davao City Vice Mayor-elect Sebastian Duterte when he was discussing about the chance of resuming the peace talks between the government and the communist rebels.
“Itong komunista, I don’t know if there is a chance of talking again. Maybe yes, maybe no. Depende na lang sa backchanneling natin. But one thing is clear, again I restate: You have to declare a ceasefire and you have to stop collecting money from the people and from the businessmen,” he said.
“Wala kayong pera, maski marami alam ko man meron, I will sponsor your billeting and hotel. Gusto ninyo diyan sa Insular kay maraming multo ‘yang mga kwarto diyan,” the President said.
He said that many of the Davaoeños as well as Tulfo did not want to stay in that hotel.
“A lot of Davaoeños and taga rito sumuko talaga diyan. Pati si Tulfo, Ramon matapang-tapang naman ‘yan, tapos nag-kuyos ‘yung…Sabi niya, ‘Meron diyang ano?’ ‘Meron. Kaya nga hindi ako nakalapit diyan eh.’ Pero sila, ilagay ko talaga diyan. Maybe the — the soul of the devil there or the fallen angels are there to shake you up,” Duterte said.
