Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Presidential candidate suffered migraine after he arrived in Ortigas,Pasig City.
Duterte was expected to deliver a speech before members of the Philippine Society of Hypertension and the Philippine Lipid and Athrosclerosis Society at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Hotel in Pasig City.
He was already in the venue when he suddenly excused himself and retreated to the toilet.
After a few minutes, his running mate Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano said that Mayor Duterte experienced migraine and he had to take a rest.
“Thank you for your patience. I took over muna sa pagsalita ni Mayor kasi medyo masama talaga ang migraine. So far, we’re not cancelling or postponing any activity. Iyong activity sa Saturday, tuloy pa rin,” he told reporters.
When asked if it’s anything serious, Sen. Cayetano said there is nothing to worry about the Mayor’s health, he added that it may have been triggered by sleeplessness and fatigue.
The Duterte-Cayetano tandem are scheduled to visit Tagum City and Davao City over the weekend.
