Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, the Special Assistant to the President, recently held a three-point shootout with the youth of Bacoor City, Cavite to promote physical activities and the government’s campaign against illegal drugs.
The people of Bacoor warmly welcomed Go who led “Strike for Go! 3 Point Shootout” at Strike Gymnasium upon the invitation of Bacoor Rep. Strike Revilla, a former city mayor.
Go, who recently participated in the kickoff leg of PBA All-Star Week 2018, showed his basketball skills particularly sharpshooting from the three-point line, earning praise from Bacooreños.
“I am glad to witness the agility and excitement of Bacooreños in basketball, as well as your support for President Rodrigo Duterte’s war against illegal drugs,” Go said during the exhibition at Strike Gymnasium, which was erected when Revilla was still mayor of Bacoor.
Go also earned the admiration of those who attended the event when the presidential assistant with the rank of Cabinet secretary gave a pair of shoes to a young lad who joined the basketball shootout barefooted.
“I thank Rep. Revilla for his full support for President Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs from the start. I also thank all Bacooreños,” said Go.
Meanwhile, Revilla cited the need for the people to unite with the government to end the scourge of illegal drugs which destroy families, dim the future of the Filipino youth and spawn corruption.
“I, together with my family and the people of Bacoor will continue to throw our support for the campaign against illegal drugs. We will also support our honorable guest, Bong Go, should he decide to submit to the request of our people that he run for the Senate,” he said.
“We need allies to wipe out the problem of illegal drugs in our country,” Revilla said.
