Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella has yet to release a statement with regards to the whereabouts of the President or even the state of his health.

Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, claimed that Duterte was not feeling well so he skipped his supposedly first Independence Ceremony and opt to had his rest during the said holiday.

On the other hand, Abella contradicted Cayetano's claim as he was again absent last Tuesday, June 13.

According to the spokesperson, the President was in excellent health but he just needed rest to recover from his hectic schedule.

On his birthday last March, Duterte said he never lied about his health when an oxygen tank was apparently at his bedside on the photo leaked online.

"Tinatanong ako doon sa debates anong sakit mo. Sabi ko Barret Buerger's because of smoking," the President answered befoer.

He admitted he is having some problems with circulation of oxygen in his body and brain.

"I use it because they say my brain suffers lack of oxygenation. Matagal ko nang ginagamit yan," he added.
