DAVAO CITY: Mayor Rodrigo Duterte defended yesterday the sudden trip last week of President Arroyo to three cities in Mindanao, including Davao City where she stayed overnight and spent some time at the mayor’s favorite watering hole, a piano bar along Quimpo Boulevard.
“It was an important trip and I think she achieved what she came here for even if it was done in secret with no media attention. It was a fruitful trip,” he said.
