Prior to being elected as the Chief Executive of our country, President Duterte served as Mayor of Davao City for more than two decades. He first came into office during the late 1980's, at a time when Mindanao was dealing with serious peace and order issues, and Davao City was not what it is now, the center of business and commerce in the island, and one of the most orderly cities in the country.
