MANILA, March 28 (PNA) — Some Senators took to social media their greetings to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte who turned 72-years-old on Tuesday (March 28).

Senate Pres. Aquilino Pimentel III, president of the administration party Partido Demokratiko Pilipino Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-LABAN) on his official Twitter account, shared a photo of himself with Pres. Duterte using the hashtags #PartnersForChange and #PDPLaban.

Like Pimentel, Sen. Joseph Victor Ejercito, an ally of Pres. Durerte, also shared a throwback photo of himself with the President together with some of the chief executive’s bodyguards to greet him happy birthday.

Sen. Cynthia Villar also joined the bandwagon by greeting him with “God bless and more power!” and also sharing a candid photo they shared together.

Another ally, Pres. Sherwin Gatchalian, meanwhile chose to send his greetings to the President in the vernacular: “Maligayang kaarawan, President @RRD_Davao (Happy birthday, President @RRD_Davao)!

“Sana ay matupad ang iyong hangarin na maging ligtas ang ating bansa, alang-alang sa sambayanan (I hope your desire to make the country a safe place for the sake of the people comes true),” he added.

Gatchalian, however, did not have a photo of himself and the President to share but instead shared a photo of the chief executive wearing a barong.

Pres. Duterte previously said that he only wished for two birthday gifts — more strength to complete his work and a quiet time with his family.

“I only ask God that give me a little bit of time, a little strength to surmount the problems of the country and that I’d be able, not really to solve but maybe mitigate some of the rigors of governance,” Duterte said in a previous press conference.

“I would be very glad to spend my time with my newest grandson Stone and the rest of my children and grandchildren. That would have been the greatest gift that I can ask in this planet. To me, that’s enough,” he said.
