Isko Moreno has this answer to Lolit Solis when she said “BBM ako!”
After three years of serving the people of Manila, the actor-turned-politician decided to run for president under the Aksyon Demokratiko party. During a recent media conference for the movie Yorme: The Musical, which tells the life story of Moreno, he said that his 23 years in public service will show how he served the people.
However, Lolit said that she will vote for another candidate, based on the article in Manila Bulletin. “BBM ako. BBM ang iboboto ko. Sana sa susunod na election ka na lang tumakbo at ikaw talaga ang iboboto ko,” Lolit Solis said. She also stressed that it is too early for the Manila Mayor to seek the highest position in the Philippine government.
Yorme answered this straightforward statement of Many Lolit. “Persistent ako sa buhay. Meron pa akong anim na buwan para kumbinsihin ka, Tita Lolit,” he said.
The presidential aspirant also said that he respects the opinion of other people as this is part of democracy. For Moreno, timing is also not a factor. He also stressed that it is all about what a candidate can do for the people.
Popularity should not be basis of choosing the right leader as well, the Manila Mayor added. “Sino yung nakasama natin sa oras ng lugmok? Sino yung halos ibuwis ang buhay niya oag lingkuran lamang ang kapwa nya. Whoever that is, it’s up to our people to answer,” Isko Moreno pointed out.
He added that what the Philippines needs now is an energetic leader “Kailan natin ng mabilis na leader kasi mabilis din ang pagkakalugmok ng mga tao. Being eloquent using good words cannot solve our problems. Sa akin ganun lamang. Maaring tama ka, Tita Lolit. Kung sarili ko lang ang iisipin ko e mag mayor na lang ako ng Maynila. Tingin ko mukhang walang lalaban,” the presidential aspirant said to Lolit Solis.
