Looking for the video wherein President Duterte made the categorical statement declining the honorary doctorate degree from UP?
Below is the transcript of the part of Duterte’s speech where he rejected and what is the reason for declining such an honor.
“I just want to work, I don’t craved for adulation. Sabi nga nila, sabi nga ni Maam…if you were right, I declined…bigyan daw nila ako ng honoris causa, I don’t need it…Ah, it has always been my policy both as personal and official that I do not accept awards…that has always been…in terms of my work, I have always said I am paid to do it,so why should you give me so many awards? Bayad na ako so wala ng…sa akin lang tamang trabaho lang at maibigay talaga sa Filipino ang pera na yan.”
Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol took to Facebook to explain why President Duterte declined UP’s offer.
“Another one bites the dust.
Those who prematurely raised a howl of protest over the offer of the University of the Philippines of a Doctorate Degree Honoris Causa should have made a check on the character of President Rody Duterte.
Duterte, even when he was Mayor never allowed his name or photo to be plastered on government vehicles or on billboards of government road projects.
In fact, he refused the prestigious World Mayor Award in 2014.
“Trabaho ko yan. I don’t need to be awarded,” he said.
Those who protested should have checked who Duterte is.
Now, their faces are as red as a rotten Gumamela.”
In light of the news of President Duterte declining the honorary doctorate degree, the netizens loudly cheered the president via their comments on social media.
Joel Lumanta wrote: “UP pahiya kayo…ibahen ninyo c lolo digs. Papunta palang kayo pabalik na siya..tulong sa bayan kc ang nasa isip at puso niya….mag aral nalang kayo ng mabuti marami ka kayong dapat alamin…..”

John Mark S. Fadriquela commented: “Only in the Phillipines yan magbigay award sa taong walang nagawa. Buti pa si Tatay chill2x lang walang paki sa mga ganyan hindi kasi mahilig na ipagsigawan pa ang GALING nya at mga NAGAWA nya para magpaimpres, gusto ni Tatay kung maaari simply at normal lang.”
