On Monday, former President Fidel V. Ramos told GMA News that he resigned as special envoy to China after Duterte concluded his visit to Beijing.
A day after the FVR announcement, President Duterte confirmed he had received the FVR resignation while talking to reporters when the President visited his parent’s grave.
I’d like to thank him for helping me and be of service to his nation.
The President the issued the statement during the ambush interview with reporters.
Meanwhile, not all Duterte supporters are happy with the FVR resignation.
Actress Vivian Velez, for example, has a different take why FVR resigned and expressed her opinion on Facebook.
In the post, the actress accused FVR of being a sour grape when his policy suggestions to Duterte remain unheeded.
The old man is a spent bullet, empty shell… just because he supported PRRD he thinks he can steer him around. A stupid move actually Mr. ExP, what a way to be remembered tsk tsk tsk…
Her Facebook supporters agreed with the actress by commenting on the thread.
Sands A Martinez says: Maybe because he sees himself as a puppeteer and because he can’t manipulate prrd, he is moving to unseat him. Dirty old man.
Luis Cuervo He is old and tired …forgiven! Just sit back and shut up sir.
Ria Baby Agoncillo ulyanin alis jan!!! panggulo ka lang 😬😬😬
Rodel Urmatan To be honest, the guy is a great comedian. 😂
Meanwhile, President Duterte credited FVR for his critical role in resolving the issue with China.
Ramos had “broken the ice” to help restore goodwill between the Philippines and China.
