Former Special Assistant to the President (SAP) and Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said that he would be appealing to President Rodrigo Duterte regarding the pending franchise renewal of network giant, ABS-CBN.
KAMI learned that Go wanted to appeal for the sake of the 11,000 employees who might lose their jobs.
In a report by the GMA News Online (authored by Amita Legaspi), Go said that he would appeal to Duterte. However, the decision is still up to the President.
“Kung ako po ang tatanungin, I will appeal to the President, for the simple reason na ayaw ko na may mawalan ng trabaho,” Go explained.
“Nasa kanya na desisyon. Sasabihin ko lang sa kanya as a legislator, maga-apela ako sa kanya na ayokong mawalan ng trabaho. ‘Di ko matuturuan ang Pangulo. At the end of the day it will be his decision,” he added.
Meanwhile, Go reiterated that the President only wants the truth from the media when it comes to reporting.
"That is all the president wants. Ano lang po ang totoo. Nothing more nothing less," the senator said.
"Kung masama ka kay Pangulo, maging mas masama siya sa yo. Kung mabait ka kay Pangulo, mas mabait siya sa’yo.
"If you want fair reporting, then ilabas niyo ang katotohanan kung bakit nasaktan ang Pangulo,” he continued.
In a previous report by KAMI, the executives of ABS-CBN attended the Senate hearing for the network’s pending franchise renewal.
President Duterte has been vocal that he would oppose the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN. The Office of the Solicitor General earlier filed a quo warranto petition against ABS-CBN.
