During the recent inauguration of the Farmer’s Market in Narvacan, Ilocos Sur, President Duterte made a slight detour from his speech and talked about his dorm mates in college (probably when he was taking up Law in San Beda College) whom he said were mostly Ilocanos and many of them became members of his government when became President like Dulay of the BIR and Bello of DOLE. His roommate was Yasay, a Bisaya from Cotabato whom he also appointed to a government position but was rejected by the CA (Commission of Appointment) because he was an American citizen.
Moving forward, President Duterte confessed that in his government, there are only 3 or 4 Bisaya left, majority are Ilocanos. That is why, in a months time, he will give up the position and leave Malacanan so he told the Ilocano audience to choose who among the Ilocano leaders as his successor. (Crowd wildly cheered after hearing what PRRD said.)
On Facebook, retired broadcaster Jay Sonza, who is highly partisan for BBM’s presidential bid, received the President Duterte’s message with gusto and responded that his order has been heard loud and clear.
In less than 12 hours, Sonza’s FB post has generated 11,700+ reactions from his followers.
Sonza’s FB followers also shared Sonza’s opinion that indeed PRRD is endorsing BBM without saying it explicitly.
Common sense tells us PRRD will endorse the party mate of his own daughter Sara commented a netizen. Correction: Sara and BBM are not party mates. BBM is Partido Federal while Sara is Lakas CMD and HP.
Ano pang inaantay niyong ibabalita niyang susuportahan ng pangulo? Sino pa bang Ilocano na kandidato sa pagka pangulo? Siyempre, wala nang iba kundi si bbm! Sentido kumon, alangan iba pa pipiliin niya kundi kapartido ng sariling dugo si sara? Mabuhay ka tatay Digong, ikaw na rin nagluklok kapalit mo!
