President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday night said he wanted to venture into teaching after his presidency ends later this year.

In a “Talk to the People” address, Duterte said he wanted to teach because “we have to tell the younger people what is at stake.”

“Ako, I’d be interested to pass on to the next generation kung ano ‘yung mabuti nagawa namin para sa Davao, kopyahin na lang. I can pass it on to sa next gen, ito ang gawin ninyo,” he said.

“I could trying to ano — if I could go — I’ll teach hindi na sa law, mga subjects sa AB (Bachelor of Arts), mas malawak e,” the president added.

Duterte earlier said that he had started packing his bags and would be out of Malacañang by March.

The Davao native said he was planning to buy a two-bedroom condominium unit in Manila once he retires.

“Wala akong bahay dito [Manila]. Paglabas ko diyan, sabi ko sa asawa ko, saan ako pupunta? Sabi ko magbili ka talaga ng condo na maski maliit lang para ma-standby-an ko kung nandito ako sa Maynila,” he said.

Duterte said he was awaiting the day of turnover so he could experience the feeling of being an outgoing president.

“Never in my life did I—even during the time I filed my certificate, I really do not know what prompted me to do it knowing that I didn’t have the resources,” he said.

While he has said he was looking forward to his retirement, the 76-year-old president almost ran for vice president and senator last year.

Duterte’s term will end on June 30, 2022.

Duterte’s retirement plans could be put to waste however as several presidential candidates in the 2022 elections have expressed desire to let the International Criminal Court into the country and investigate his deadly war on drugs. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
