President Rodrigo Duterte was given traditional departure honors on Thursday, as he capped his 6-year term of office. 

His Cabinet members chanted "Duterte" as they shook hands with the outgoing leader, who was accompanied by his successor President-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos. 

Duterte skipped a traditional car ride that would have brought him and Marcos Jr. to the latter's inauguration venue at the National Museum. 

The 77-year-old Duterte will settle in his hometown Davao City, where he was mayor for several years. 

A group of businessmen organized a homecoming celebration for Duterte, but it was still unclear if he would attend.
