The Presidential Daughter was in Cebu for three days to attend official events in Liloan, a 1st class town located approximately 22 kilometers north of Cebu City. 

She arrived on Friday, October 22, coinciding the arrival of Marcos who was in the city for the opening of his campaign headquarters. 

Duterte-Carpio confirmed that she met with the dictator’s son but declined to provide further details.
