Mind your own business: Cayetano tells Leni to take care of her own issues after she dares him to criticize Marcoses
Senator Alan Peter Cayetano challenged Vice President Leni Robredo to dig deeper into the issues that she and her party mates from the Liberal Party have been involved in after she urged him to speak out against the Marcoses.
In a statement issued Friday (Dec. 9), Cayetano said he is doing “what I can, in the manner that I believe I can be most effective” with regard to criticizing the Marcoses despite his loyalty to President Rodrigo Duterte.
In turn, the senator dared Robredo to do the following:
Ask how and why the drug problem got so bad and out of control.
Call out and demand that your LP allies involved in illegal drugs resign and be jailed.
Ask for justice for the SAF 44.
Ask for justice for tanim bala victims.
Ask for an investigation and justice on MRT anomalies.
Expose other LP personalities’ involvement in graft and corruption.
Ask for an investigation why despite expensive fees in the airport in the past admin, no CCTVs were purchased and installed.
Ask the PCIJ, Rappler and Inquirer to look into your donors and undeclared expenses during your campaign.
Ask ABS-CBN, and other media outlets that supported you to be fair and objective.
Cayetano noted that Robredo was quiet with regard to the issues that her party mates faced but he respected her decision.
In a forum organized by the Philippine Daily Inquirer Thursday (Dec. 8), Robredo said she is hopeful that Cayetano would be as outspoken about the Marcoses now as he was during the election campaign period.
As a final note, the senator told Robredo: “There’s much more, but in a nutshell I challenge you to stop campaigning and thinking of The Presidency and help attract investments, build infrastructure, create jobs and redistribute wealth in our country.”
Let’s do it together.
