Broadcast journalist Ben Tulfo expressed his wish for fellow media man Mike Enriquez after knowing that the latter is suffering from health issues.
KAMI learned that the TV-5 broadcaster is also praying for the fast recovery of the 24 Oras anchorman despite their controversial clash.
Ben also said that he still considers Mike as his friend and he even revealed that the veteran journalist is his “kumpare.”
“Isa ako sa mga nagdadasal at umaasa sa agarang paggaling sa anumang karamdaman ng aking kaibigan na si Mike Enriquez, news anchor ng GMA-7,” he expressed.
“Sa inyong kabatiran, si Mike Enriquez ay aking kumpare sa kasal. Tumayo kaming dalawa bilang ninong,” Ben added.
The TV-5 journalist, who is known for his strong opinions on certain issues, shared how he and Mike first knew each other and how they got to bond many years ago.
“Late '70s and early '80s, senior ko si Mike Enriquez sa larangan ng radio broadcasting, pagiging disc jockey,” Ben said.
“Hangad ng programang ito at ako personal na nagdadasal ang agarang paggaling ng aking kumpare, senior sa industriya, si kumpareng Mike,” he also remarked.
At the end of his statement, Ben did not forget to address the dispute between him and Mike and said that it was just part of their jobs.
He also admitted that their controversial clash will not hinder him from wishing for his friend’s good health.
“Anumang naging magkasalungat naming mga pananaw at opinyon na kung minsan umabot na sa pilyong asaran… ito ay trabaho lang.
“Subalit kapag pag-uusapan ang karamdaman at kalusugan ninuman, bilang isang Kristiyano… damayan, pag-unawa, awa at dasal ang kailangan,” pahayag ni Ben.
In a previous article by KAMI, Mike revealed the reason why he is absent in his TV and Radio programs. He said he is on a medical leave because of kidney ailment and a scheduled heart surgery next month.
Three months ago, the broil between the two influential anchors started when Mike commented on-air that DOT stands for Department of Tulfo instead of Department of Tourism.
Ben did not remain silent on the issue as he threatened to expose what he knows about the veteran anchor.
