Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 16) — President Rodrigo Duterte skipped his scheduled events on Friday because of a headache, his former aide said.

The President was supposed to distribute certificates of land ownership to farmer beneficiaries, followed by a grand campaign rally for the PDP-LABAN party in Davao City.

"Sumasakit talaga ang ulo ni Pangulo. Indisposed siya ngayong araw na ito," former Special Assistant to the President and senatorial candidate Bong Go told reporters after the PDP-LABAN rally at Crocodile Park.

[Translation: The President has a huge headache. He's indisposed today.]

Go said that the issue was not serious.

"Nothing serious po. So I assure you walang problema (there's no problem)," he added.

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte attended the land distribution event in her father's stead.
