The Philippine president says he became a local millionaire at a young age due to inheritance but reiterated he has no unexplained wealth as alleged by his leading critic, reports AP.
President Rodrigo Duterte gave some details of his personal assets in a dinner with journalists Friday where he repeated a pledge to resign if anybody can prove that he has hidden wealth stashed in bank accounts as alleged by an opposition senator.
Duterte said: "Long ago, I was just a student, fourth year. I already had about 3 million ($59,000)," explaining the money came from his share of inherited properties after his father died in 1968.
Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV has accused Duterte of concealing more than 2 billion pesos ($39 million) in undeclared bank accounts when he was a mayor.
