Opposition Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan claimed that there is no truth behind the oligarch issues of President Rodrigo Duterte.
KAMI learned that for Sen. Pangilinan, the oligarch issue is just a diversion tactic amid the government’s alleged failure in beating COVID-19.
In several posts on Twitter, the Senator aired his thoughts after President Rodrigo Duterte announced that he was able to dismantle the oligarchs in the Philippines without declaring martial law.
“COVID, gutom at kawalan ng trabaho ng milyun-milyon nating mga kababayan ang problema hindi itong mga oligarchs, kuno,” Pangilinan wrote.
“Gawa-gawa lang yang problema ng mga oligarchs. Walang kinalaman ang pagsasara ng ABS sa matinding problema dulot ng COVID,” he added.
Pangilinan claimed that the problem against the oligarchs was just invented to hide the problem regarding hunger and lots of unemployment among Filipinos.
“Inimbento lang ang problema na oligarchs para linlangin ang taumbayan dahil sa totoo lang wala silang maipakitang ni katiting na magandang resulta sa pagsugpo sa lalo pang kumakalat na COVID, sa gutom at sa kawalan ng trabaho ng milyun-milyon nating mga kababayan,” he said.
“Saan tayo maniniwala? Sa gawa-gawa lang o doon sa totoo lang?” he continued.
In an earlier report, President Duterte proudly announced that he dismantled the oligarchs or rich people who manipulated the country’s economy and people.
Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is a Filipino lawyer. He is the husband of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and they have two daughters together and an adopted son.
Recently, their daughter Frankie Pangilinan has been receiving threats after being vocal about her political stand. Sen. Pangilinan then gave his response to the threats against her daughter.
