A Facebook page falsely claimed President Rodrigo Duterte has been awarded the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
The caption of Solid Duterte Supporters against Gang Shabu’s Dec. 3 post read:
O ANO N?? E YNG PRECSDENTE NIYO?? PURO DADA LANG 2ALANG NGWA. PROUD OF U I LOVE PRESIDENT DUTERTE (What now? What about your president who talks but doesn’t get anything done? Proud of you, I love you President Duterte) #SolidDu30AgainstGangShabu
It also said Duterte got the award “for his extraordinary achievement in turning (the) Philippines into Singapore; guaranteeing lasting peace, honor, and dignity to his people; and shining as the brightest star.”
The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali on Oct. 19, “for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea.” Ali restored Ethiopia's relations with Eritrea (in July 2018), after years of hostility and a border war from 1998 to 2000, according to the Nobel Prize Committee.
