Lodi! Duterte praises Manny Villar as a ‘splendid’ bizman, politiko


President Rodrigo Duterte didn’t scrimp on praises for Vista Land and Lifescapes chairman Manny Villar for his 68th birthday.

During the unveiling of Mella Hotel’s marker in Las Piñas City Thursday (December 23), Duterte said Villar was “splendid” both as a businessman and politiko.

“You know, lahat dito sa mundo it’s destiny. Manny Villar is destined to be a billionaire and a public servant and he’s a splendid one at that. His gift to the nation is the example that he has given us that if you have the tiyaga at sipag,it might not be in the other dimensions of life, pero definitely you will have success,” he said.

Duterte urged the public to emulate Villar’s slogan of “sipag at tiyaga” to succeed in life.

“Let us emulate these traits so that we may also succeed as millionaires, I think, or billionaire— no, succeed in our respective interests and pursuits,” he said.

Villar, a former congressman and senator, ran in the 2010 presidential elections but lost.

He currently ranks second in Forbes business magazine’s list of richest Filipinos, with an estimated net worth of $5 billion (P267.3 billion).
