HIGHLIGHT: Sect leader Apollo Quiboloy, founder of Davao-based The Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC) and staunch supporter of presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte, vowed to lead a people’s revolution himself if the Davao mayor gets cheated in the national elections on May 9.
“If you cheat Duterte, (who has) a 12- percentage point ahead of his opponents, there will be a revolution. I will lead a revolution of the people if that happens. I will not allow it,” Quiboloy told reporters on Thursday, April 28.
Quiboloy, who has shown his support to Duterte by even lending the presidential candidate his own private plane and chopper for the campaign, said that with the consistently huge turnout for Duterte’s rallies, cheating would be the only obvious reason should the Davao mayor lose.
He earlier cited reports of overseas absentee voters getting receipts which did not reflect their choices in their cast ballots.
He also expects that with the elections fast approaching, more issues would only be hurled at the current frontrunner.
Recently, vice-presidential candidate Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV claimed that Duterte has been hiding millions of cash assets in a Bank of the Philippine Islands bank account, which Duterte did not declare in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth and therefore may be grounds for a possible impeachment case.
The KJC, which Quiboloy founded in 1985 currently has 6 million members; 4 million in the Philippines and 2 million overseas. In the sect’s website, Quiboloy is heralded as “the Appointed Son of God.”
