PCL head claims Cebu mayors back BBM-Sara tandem

CEBU, Philippines — Philippine Councilors League national chairman, Davao City Councilor Danilo Dayanghirang, declared that Cebu will go straight for BBM-Sara tandem.

Dayanghirang, head of Sara All National Parallel Coordinating Council, made the statement based on several surveys wherein the BBM-Sara tandem always come out in the lead including here in Cebu.

Dayanghirang, who attended the opening and blessing of Uniteam BBM/SARA ALL headquarters of the Visayas Regional Coordination Center at the Roble warehouse in North Reclamation Area in Cebu City, said many Cebu mayors will go for the tandem although they are still silent on it.

The center’s overall coordinator Cebuano ship owner, Joy Roble, said that all of the volunteers will continue to work hard to ensure the victory of the tandem that will unite this divided country.

Roble recalled that when he was young, he and his counterparts were marching and shouting on the streets against Marcos but later realized that they were just being indoctrinated.

“Mao na grabe ang bul-og sa katawhan nga nisuporta ni BBM kay nahigmata na ang katawhan. Ang mga batan-on karon dili na ing-ana motoo dayon kay naa may social media. Duha na ka administrasyon nga Aquino ang niagi pero walay kawat nga na prove nila,” said Roble.

Roble added that this is the only team that can unite this country.

They are also hopeful that President Rodrigo Duterte will eventually endorse the BBM-Sara tandem as almost all of his family members are doing the same.

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama, who also attended the event, said that in the meantime that President is not endorsing the presidential bid of BBM but urged all his supporters and volunteers to continue working as eventually the President  will just do it and “he will be with us.”

Congressman Jonathan Dela Cruz, Team BBM national adviser, said that the BBM-Sara will work for unity and continuity of the projects and programs of the Duterte administration.

Dela Cruz added that once former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio are elected as president and vice president, respectively, the Filipino people are assured of continuity. — GMR (FREEMAN)
