Being the savvy businessman he is, San Miguel Corp. (SMC) president Ramon Ang has revealed backing not just one, but all five presidential candidates.
In an article published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer Thursday (March 31), Ang said he was not “stupid” to place all his bets on one politiko.
“You know that I’m not stupid to support only one. I work in San Miguel so if I do that, the company will be affected. We support everyone who’s running. All of them are my friends,” he said.
There has been speculation that Senator Grace Poe is Ang preferred presidential candidate after she confirmed that SMC is one of the companies from which she leases the private plane she uses on her sorties.
However, the business tycoon clarified that the plane Poe borrows is his own and not SMC’s.
He also said any politiko could borrow his plane whenever it’s not in use.
“By the way, even my personal plane if you want to check the logbook, 90 plus percent [of the time I lend to the Liberal Party or usually to the government],” Ang said.
