Mayor Duterte was quoted as saying during the interview that "In order not to incur so much expenses, pinapatingnan ko yung bahay ni President (Cory) Aquino (the Arlegui mansion near Malacañang, which served as the official residence of President Corazon Aquino from 1986 to 1992 and President Fidel Ramos from 1992 to 1998).
The 71-year-old Mayor Duterte who is known as one of the toughest local executive particularly his hard stance against criminals while serving as mayor of Davao City was discovered by the local news media that despite the mayor's stature as "tough-talking" he is indeed afraid of ghosts or haunted house.
Pres. Rody Duterte reiterated that the main reasons why he won't live in Malacang is because of ghosts. He was quoted as saying "Maraming mumu doon. When I was working for (President Gloria) Arroyo as consultant for law and order, she once called me around 2 a.m. I was brought to a sala with paintings of the presidents, while I waited for her to dress up.
"It was really giddy. Tiningnan ko yung mga mukha nila (I looked at the faces on the portraits). The presidents were in different poses, but they were all looking in front. The wind blew or seguro malakas ang air-con. Nang tumingin ako, nakatingin sila sa akin lahat. (When I looked again, they were all looking at me.) Put—ng ina. Lalabas ako dito. Nabuang na ni." Mayor Duterte added.
When asked by the reporters on where he will stay during his term as President, he responded that he plans to live in the Arlegue Mansion or the Cory Aquino Mansion which is located inside the Malacanang Complex in San Miguel, Manila. The Arleque Mansion is where the two former president live, Pres. Cory Aquino and Pres. Fidel V. Ramos.
