From just being political allies, former presidential political adviser Francis Tolentino and former presidential spokesperson Harry Roque have grown closer to become friends.
In an interview over ANC’s “Headstart” Monday (February 4), Roque revealed that Tolentino was the first person from the Duterte administration who called him up after he underwent a medical procedure for a heart problem.
“Francis Tolentino is the one who called me but he had already heard about it,” he said.
Roque mentioned Butuan City Rep. Lawrence Fortun as another politiko who wished him well after the medical procedure he had last week.
President Rodrigo Duterte’s former spokesperson decided to drop out of the senatorial race to rest following the medical procedure he had, in accordance with his doctor’s instructions.
Roque said he is considering going back to the academe or law practice once he finishes cardiac rehabilitation.
