According to the report, the President was planning to visit at 11:30 PM on Saturday, however, he arrived at around 1:45 Sunday and stayed for an hour and a half. Prior to his visit, he already expressed his deepest condolences in his speech, coined Santiago as the senator who ate death threats for breakfast.

"She is best remembered as a graft buster, eating death threats for breakfast, earning her the Iron Lady of Asia. A Constitutionalist, she has always been an advocate for the rule of law," he said.
