Though Go revealed, “Kahilakon ko tong nag ingon si Mayor na modagan ko ( I almost cried when the Mayor (referring to the President) asked me  to run), because it was a selfless President talking to me.”

Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio earlier expressed full support to Go’s candidacy,  should he finally decide to run as Senator in the 2019 elections.

Supporters of the President have  thrown support to Go. Many of them claim they love and support Go, for being kind,   soft spoken, polite and for listening to them.

Being the aide of Duterte,  is also known as the man next to the President and the only way to the President..

Many perceived Go as a good material for senator given his experience in handling local and national affairs,  his  grasps, skills  and his knowledge on the dynamics of a government office.
