Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 24)— President Rodrigo Duterte recently met with one of his aspiring successors, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, with the chief executive imparting some words of wisdom to the candidate, Malacañang said on Thursday.

“It was a cordial and productive meeting, where the President shared his experiences and insights as an outgoing chief executive,” acting presidential spokesperson Martin Andanar said in a statement.

“[He] likewise discussed the current government’s major achievements and gave pieces of advice to Mr. Marcos,” he added.

According to Andanar, the President also expressed optimism that his administration’s flagship programs will be continued by the next leadership. No further details were provided as of publishing.

Earlier in the day, Duterte’s ally Sen. Bong Go also confirmed that such a meeting took place, even saying that it was one of the factors behind the PDP-Laban’s move to support the son and namesake of the late dictator.

Duterte, however, has yet to say if he is echoing the endorsement of his party.
