- Dr. Willie Ong shared that there was a basher who said that he is running as a senator for the salary and allowance
- However, Ong bravely answered the accusations thrown to him
- He said that he will be using the allowance and salary for patients going through dialysis, etc.
Senatorial aspirant Dr. Willie Ong has answered the allegations thrown to him by a basher who said that he was just after the salary and allowance in the Senate.
KAMI learned that Ong shared on Facebook where his salary and allowance will go once he becomes a senator during a meeting in Cebu City.
“May nag-bash. Ang habol ko daw sa Senado ay sweldo at allowance. Mali po,” Ong stated.
“Lahat ng Sweldo, Allowance at Perks natin sa Senado IBIBIGAY natin sa Dialysis patients, mga may sakit sa puso, kidney at iba pa. Hindi natin HABOL ang sweldo at pansarili,” he added.
The Senate bet also said that he does not extra money for his family and that he is able to save enough money to suffice their needs.
“May naipon na ako para sa maliit na pamilya ko. Matipid kami. 2 anak na babae lang. Ang gusto natin ay MAILIGTAS na ang buhay ng mga pasyente natin,” Ong said.
In a previous report by KAMI, Ong said that he is running as a senator to fill in the gap that the current administration was not able to address in terms of health services.
“Nakita ko ‘yung butas sa Senate, wala tayong doktor doon. Walang doktor doon na nagsusulong sa Committee on Health katulad ni Senator Juan Flavier,” Ong said.
“Kapag napuntahan mo ‘yung mahirap na pasyente, maaawa kayo, matatransform kayo. Gusto natin tumulong, natry ko sa private, natry ko sa media, natry ko sa DOH (Department of Health), ito ang kailangan ngayon ng tao,” he added.
Born on October 24. 1963, Dr. Willie Ong was a consultant of the Department of Health from 2010 to 2014. He is an in-house medical expert in ABS-CBN’s Salamat Dok. Ong is also the founder and chair of Society of Philippine Health History from 2003 up to present.
