THE camp of presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos yesterday clearly explained why he has appeared to be reluctant to shake hands in his campaign sorties.
“BBM is not avoiding shaking hands but is only trying to keep from aggravating the wound on his arm near the pulse which appears to be infected,” the Marcos camp clarified.
It also pointed out that Marcos as a “true leader calling on the people to unite against the crisis brought about by the pandemic he continues to mingle with the people who love him and the BBM-Sara UniTeam.”
BBM spent 12 hours in the caravan and rally yesterday in Caloocan City after traveling across Ilocandia with his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
Marcos will go on with his Manila tour as he pushes on with his campaign.
“We are asking for the understanding of our countrymen and supporters and requesting them to avoid pressing the hand and arm of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos to prevent further infection and hasten the healing of his injury,” the BBM camp said.
