Former PR handler of Isko Moreno claims Manila Mayor sent her a word she will never get a client nor have a business if he is in power

As they say, In politics, there are no permanent friends but interest.

Well, that adage aptly describe the relationship between two former allies and friends, PR consultant Ms. Malou Tiquia and Mayor Isko Moreno.

Tiquia has been Mayor Moreno’s long time PR handler, if you will, dating back to the pre-Mayor days of the incumbent Manila Mayor.

In case you missed it, Ms. Tiquia left Mayor Isko’s camp just this year due to what she termed issues of governance and corruption.

The feud between Malou Tiquia, Publicus Asia, Inc. CEO/Founder and prominent PR Consultant and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno appeared to have reached the stage where the two camp just moved on and continue with their lives.

Instead, it has taken a turn for the worse after Mayor Moreno allegedly continued harassing her and even to the extent of employing trolls to harass her on Facebook.

In fact, Ms. Tiquia warned Mayor Moreno and his troll farms to be careful because her team has already identified the IP addresses used in harassing her on social media.

But here’s the eyebrow-raising part! According to Ms. Tiquia, Mayor Isko Moreno told the people around him that if he is in power, his former ally and PR consultant (Ms. Tiquia) will never get a client nor have a business.

Ms. Tiquia said she ignored this loose talk from Moreno’s camp, which was also repeated by his troll farms for a long time but what literally broke the camel’s back was the allegations of demanding multi-million peso professional fee and to be the principal strategist of Isko Moreno’s presidential bid.

Ms. Tiquia strongly denied the allegations labeled against her by Mayor Isko and his troll farms as pure lies.

You may read Ms. Tiquia’s original FB post for the juicy details.

Matagal tagal na rin pinarating ito sa akin. Hindi ko na sana papatulan si Isko Moreno pero paulit-ulit nyang sinasabi at di ako tinitigilan ng troll farm nya. Ang huli ay kinakalat ang 2 punto: 1) multi million daw ang hinihingi ko kay Moreno; 2) gusto ko daw ako ang principal strategist nya.

Lahat ay kasinungalingan. Wala akong hininging multi million contract sa kanya. Hindi rin ako sumisingngil ng 70 M o 50M a month tulad ng iba.

Ang costing sa political management ay hati sa professional fee, operational expense, quantitative and qualitative research expenses. Kung ako mismo ang hahawak ng kampanya, merong acceptance fee at mobilization expense. Kung kailangan ng mga PO sa bawat 81 probinsya, kasama sa proposal ang PF at operations nila.

Pakitanong nyo kay Moreno kung sa lahat ng tulong ko sa kanya ay binabayaran nya ako. Ang huling contract namin sa kanya ay 2019 para sa social media management. Libre na ang advice. Ang total DISCOUNTED cost nuon ay 2M sa 45 days na kampanya o P45,000/day. Binayaran nya ang 900k nuong April 2019 at ang balance na 1.1 M ay nabayaran ng Dec 2020 at July 2021.

Gusto ko daw maging lead campaign strategist? Muli kasinungalingan yan. Ako ang huling nakaalam na siya ay tatakbo sa pagkapangulo sa aming pagpupulong ng 17 June 2021. Duon sinabi ni Moreno sa akin na tatakbo siya. Ang hiling nya ay hintayin ko desisyon nya ng August 2021.

Hindi ako tanga para hindi ko malaman naghahanda na sila maaga pa (nakatuon ako sa pamantasan dahil maraming kailangang isa-ayos duon). Maliit lamang ang industriya at maraming mata na nakakakita at itatawag sa akin. Na confirm ko ang pagtakbo nya nang may nagsabi sa akin, “kailan kita makikita sa Cubao?” At yan ay tinanong ko mismo kay Moreno.

Nag resign ako ng 13 August at hindi politika ang dahilan. Governance at corruption. Alam nya yan dahil ako ay nag padala sa kanya ng resignation letter. Paano ko gugustuhin maging campaign strategist sa hilaw na kandidato na kailangan ng bayan ang pagbangon sa 2022? Uulitin ko sa yo at mga trolls mo, mas mahal ko ang bayan ko at sinabi ko yan sayo.

Tumigil na ako pero patuloy ka pa rin sa pambabastos sa akin. Pati trolls mo patuloy ang kung ano anong pag-po post sa FB wall ko. Ingat kayo dahil nakalabas ang IP address nyo, natukoy na ng team ko.

Hindi ako ang kandidato. Hindi ako ang politiko. Gamitin mo trolls mo sa comparative messaging nang ikaw ay maka -angat at hindi sa paninira ng kapwa.
