Isko Moreno has this challenge for VP Leni and her campaign manager
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, in an interview on Wednesday, said that he is challenging Vice President Leni Robredo and her campaign manager Bam Aquino to deny that they asked other presidential candidates to withdraw.
Last weekend, Moreno who is running for president under Aksyon Demokratiko, along with presidential aspirants Ping Lacson and Norberto Gonzales, and vice-presidential aspirants Tito Sotto and Willie Ong had a joint press conference.
During the said event, the Manila Mayor said that VP Leni should withdraw from the presidential race. It was alleged that the Vice President has approached other candidates and asked them to withdraw.
However, the camp of Robredo has denied this allegation. In his retaliation regarding this issue, Mayor Isko Moreno challenged VP Leni Robredo and Bam Aquino to deny his claim that their camp was the first to ask other candidates to withdraw, based on the report from ABS-CBN.
“I challenge the honorable Vice President Leni Robredo, pasinungalingan niyo kami. Pasinungalingan niyo kami kung hindi kayo nag-attempt nang makita ng taumbayan ang katotohanan, kung sino ang fake, kung sino ang totoo,” the mayor said.
He also said the same challenge to Bam Aquino. “I challenge Bam Aquino. Sige, tignan natin. I challenge Bam Aquino to deny it,” Mayor Isko said. The Manila Mayor also addressed the statement of VP Leni spokesperson Barry Gutierrez denying the withdrawal calls.

“Barry, mag-ingat ka, may CCTV sa OVP… Fake talaga kayo. Tsaka, Barry, huwag ka nang magsalita, ‘yung amo mo pagsalitain mo,” Moreno stressed adding that Gutierrez should let VP Leni speak but he said that maybe a teleprompter is needed for her to do that.
