President Duterte has this message for Willie Revillame
Wowowin host Willie Revillame received a message from President Rodrigo who told him to “keep his options open”.
Speculations saying that the veteran game show host will also enter the world of politics have been circulating since last election. For the 2022 poll, another round of speculations about the supposed political future of Kuya Wil once again surfaced.
Last February, Senator Manny Pacquiao guested on Willie’s Kapuso show and this ignited allegations that this is a way of preparing for 2022 elections.
However, in a previous article, Willie Revillame already debunked the speculations that he will run the next elections.
In a recent article by Philstar’s columnist Ricky Lo, he shared the last February 27, President Duterte called the Wowowin host. It was during Kuya Wil’s dinner with Sen. Bong Go and Executive Sec. Salvador Medialdea at a Greenhills restaurant. The said dinner was arranged by Siomai King Jonathan So.
The Chief Executive said this to the veteran host: “Willie, mahal kita. Pinapanood kita. Maraming salamat sa ginagawa mo sa ating mga kababayan. Magkasama tayo sa pagtulong. Kasama tayo sa grupo. Kasama ka namin sa grupo.”
Senator Bong Go shared to Willie that the President has set the dinner to said his thank you. “Sabi ni Presidente, ‘Tell Willie to keep his options open.’ That’s also why nakipag-meeting kami sa’yo,” the lawmaker added.
During that meeting that lasted for five hours, the Senator asked the game show host if what his plans are. The answer of Willie Revillame to this was, “None. From the very start, my show has been making people happy at kahit papano ay nakakatulong naman.”
