Airtime ang areglo: Duterte wants ABS-CBN to promote federalism
President Rodrigo Duterte is ready to mend ties with ABS-CBN if it will promote federalism.
In a speech at PDP-Laban’s Christmas party Wednesday (December 13), Duterte reminded ABS-CBN of its sins against him, including refusing to air his ads during the campaign season for the 2016 elections.
Duterte, however, said he is ready to bury the hatchet with the network.
“Kung magtulong kayo diyan sa federal system campaign at gawain ninyong slogan also for the unity and to preserve this Republic, makipagareglo ako,” he said.
“Wala akong hingiin. Just dedicate a portion of your time, your expensive and precious time on TV, help us promote federalism,” he added.
Duterte made a similar request to other networks.
“Kayong mga network, wala kayo. Wala akong hingiin, ‘yan lang. And I said, I’m willing to shake hands with you,” he said.
