Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. were both in Cebu City on Friday but spokespersons of both politicians said no meeting transpired between the two.
“None today,” Sara’s spokesperson Liloan, Cebu Mayor Christina Frasco said in a text message when asked if President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter and Marcos met on Friday.
“No, tonight no. But both of them are there,” Marcos’ spokesman Rodriguez told GMA News Online when asked the same question.
Asked if Duterte will meet Marcos in Cebu, Frasco said, “I invited Mayor Sara to attend the inauguration of our new Port in Liloan and to attend our League of Municipalities of the Philippines Cebu General Assembly.”
“This is her official schedule,” she added.
In a Facebook post, Sara announced that she arrived in Cebu City and shared photos of her wearing a green hoodie with the phrase “Sara All 2022.”
“Magandang gabi sa inyong lahat. Confirmed po ang aking pagbisita sa Cebu. Kausap ko ngayon ang aking pinsan na si Cebu 5th District Board Member Red Duterte. Maraming salamat,” the presidential daughter wrote.
