SAP Bong Go is known as the “Little President.” He finds an equally reliable ally in the person of Senator Migz Zubiri. In the two decades that Zubiri knew him as a neighbor in Mindanao, he never asks for a percentage or any favor from the people that he helped. He does not even want to be in the limelight. Go takes the center stage only when he sings Karaoke after the President already settles at his home, said Zubiri.

[VIDEO]: SENATOR MIGZ ZUBIRI IPINAGTANGGOL SI SEC BONG GO NA FAKE NEWS ANG LAHAT SA ISYU NG FRIGATE DEAL.
The Cheapest is Not Always the Best
Malacañang said it is “very clear” that Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has nothing to do with the frigate project of the Philippine Navy. Go faces a Senate inquiry to answer allegations that he intervenes in the selection of the combat management system (CMS) for the 2 frigates. These are to be bought by the Philippines from South Korean firm Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). Zubiri does not even question this because he is for the project. Besides, the cheapest is not always the best, the Senator said.
Running for Senator?
It is observed that T-shirts printed with the phrase “Ready Set Bong Go” were distributed to Pangasinan farmers who received certificates of land reform ownership award. However, Go still has to confirm his candidacy. Earlier, he said that he is not yet ready for the Senate. Despite of this, endorsements and donation pledges keep on coming.
Go Bong Go
Another campaign for SPA Go is the “Go Bong Go.” initiative. The organizer with the imprinted slogan in his T-shirt said that he will do anything he can to help Go land in the top 5 of the 12 senators to be elected in 2019. Bong Go immediately wrote a letter after consulting the President for their claims at DPWH even before their official request. The least they can do he said which coincides with Zubiri’s testimony. So, he certainly gets support in lieu of his good deeds and not the other way around.
The Little President
Bong Go may not be as vocal as the President but he makes things done like his boss. His character did not change way back when he was still younger as the executive assistant of then-Congressman Rodrigo Du30. It would seem like magic if suddenly he gets corrupted by some fake news that the administration’s opponents are launching. Well, just like the out of the blue win of VP Leni Robredo that Bongbong Marcos is now protesting.
