Mabilog to Duterte: ‘Don’t change the issue’
Former Iloilo City mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog clapped back at President Rodrigo Duterte after he raised “old news” and “lies” against him and Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon to divert the public’s attention away from the investigation of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee.
In a taped briefing aired last Saturday, Duterte questioned Drilon’s alleged ties with Mabilog and retired Police General Marcelo Garbo Jr., whom the chief executive had linked to illegal drug trade, and convicted businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles, the alleged pork barrel scam mastermind.
Through his social media account, Mabilog urged the President to stick to the issue. (https://bit.ly/3C5wxv3)
“Hoy Digong, don’t change the issue. How much did you earn from your overpriced face shield?” Mabilog said in mixed Hiligaynon and English.
The former mayor also laughed off Duterte’s allegation that Drilon owns the biggest mall in Iloilo City.
He wrote: “SM may be the biggest mall in the city. ‘M’ stands for ‘Mabilog’, hahaha.”
Mabilog said Duterte is wasting the country’s billion worth of intelligence fund.
“Where in China did you hide it? Face shield pa more! Prepare for the International Criminal Court because you will pay for your crimes,” he added.
