With the huge resemblance, everyone thought that it was indeed the commander-in-chief. Before becoming the president, Duterte was known to drive a taxi around the streets of Davao City, where he served as a mayor from 2013 to 2016.
Apparently, it turns out, he’s not Digong, but rather, he’s “Dodong.”
ABS-CBN went to the city to find out who the driver was, and that’s where they met Ponciano "Dodong" Veronas.
"Tinanong nila ako kung ako nga ba si presidente, sabi ko hindi ako si president . Enjoy na enjoy sila at panay ang kuha ng picture, natawa na lang ako sa kanila," Dodong said in the interview.
Here’s what he looks like sans the towel on his head.
Dodong also said that he was flattered to be called the president’s doppelganger.
