DAVAO CITY, Oct. 24 (PNA) — Former President Fidel Ramos had a closed-door ramos-620x320meeting with Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday night hours after he told reporters he agrees to a Mindanaoan to become the country’s next president.
Ramos was in Davao City to keynote the ceremonial opening of the four-day 2nd BIMP EAGA IMT-GT Business Leaders Conference Trade Fair opening at SMX Convention Center.
“Mindanao deserves it,” Ramos said when asked by media on his comment regarding a Mindanaoan to become president.

“Even if I am from Luzon, I have always wanted to identify myself with the Mindanaoans. Mindanao deserves it,” he said.

“The best is yet to come. Now is the time to have a president from Mindanao,” he said.
