Nothing wrong in getting billionaires as ‘ninong’ – Chiz

Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero doesn’t see anything wrong with having some of the country’s richest businessmen as his wedding sponsors, saying he will not let his relationship with them affect his duties as a senator.

“Wala akong nakikitang (conflict) dahil lahat naman halos ay may ugnayan, may relasyon sa kung sinuman. Ang tanong kung gagamitin mo ba ang pwesto mo para mapaburan o hindi man, maipit ang sinumang negosyante,” Escudero told reporters on Thursday.

The senator’s lavish wedding to actress Heart Evangelista at Balesin Island last Feb. 15 was attended by some of the elite businessmen who have made it to the Forbes’ richest list, such as Ramon Ang, president and Chief Executive Officer of San Miguel Corporation, Fernando Zobel of Ayala Corporation, Andrew Tan of Megaworld Corporation, Lance Gokongwei of Robinson’s Corporation, Cebu Pacific and JG Summit, and Roberto “Bobby” Ongpin of Alphaland. They were all named principal sponsors of the event.

Asked if he remains independent of the wedding sponsors who attended their wedding, Escudero said he will stand for what he thinks is right. 

“Tatayuan ko ano ang tingin kong tama at lalabanan ko ano ang tingin kong mali. Anumang conflict, ang importante dinedeklara iyon para kung ano man ang posisyon mo sa isang bagay, maliwanag at alam ng publiko,” he said. 

The senator heads the Finance committee in the Senate and is one of the members of the Senate Blue Ribbon committee.
