Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte endorses fellow Mindanaoan senatorial bet Atty. Adel Tamano
Senatorial candidate Atty. Adel Tamano says he’s very grateful and humbled upon learning that Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is extending his full support on his candidacy.
“I am undoubtedly grateful to Mayor Duterte. His endorsement means a lot to me and I am very humbled by the fact that he trusts and believes in me and in what I can do not only for Mindanao but for the entire country,” Tamano enthused, adding that since Davao City loves its chief executive, he’s hopeful that the Dabawenyos will also extend their full support on his candidacy and to the rest of the Nacionalista Party.
Tamano, the first ever Filipino Muslim scholar-graduate of Harvard Law School and youngest president of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, is a proud son of Marawi City.
“Mayor Duterte’s endorsement will most definitely provide a boost in my campaign. We actually share a lot of advocacies. Both of us believe that the rule of law should prevail, that citizens should be responsible and accountable for their actions and that education should be provided budgetary priority. We also both acknowledge the fact that peace is key especially here in our beloved Mindanao,” Tamano underscored.

“I also have a lot of relatives here in Davao City so our entire clan is really thankful for Mayor Duterte’s vote of confidence.”
The 39-year old lawyer is the son of the late Senator Mamintal Tamano. Tamano was a constitutional law professor at the Mindanao State University in Marawi.
Aside from being a senatorial candidate, Tamano is also currently the spokesman of the Nacionalista Party. He was previously the spokesman of the Genuine Opposition.
