NARVACAN, Ilocos Sur – MAYOR Luis “Chavit” Singson Sr. is awestruck by the “volunteer-driven” campaign of the tandem of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. and Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
This was shared by Singson, Mayors League of the Philippines president, to a crowd of supporters in Narvacan Thursday night as BBM-Sara UniTeam carried out several campaign sorties in the province.
“Mayroon po akong ibabalita sa inyo–bilang presidente ng mayors’ league sa buong bansa, nakalibot na po ako, nakita ko for the first time ang galaw ng mga tao. Ngayon lang ako nakakita na ang mga tao mismo, volunteers ang nangunguna na nagsusuporta sa susunod na presidente natin, si Bongbong Ferdinand Marcos Jr. at gayundin ang ating kaibigan, si Mayor Inday Sara,” said Singson, who sounded mightily impressed.
“Wala nang kaduda-duda sa nakita ko, nauuna po yung mga volunteers, sumunod lamang po yung mga local officials. At nagpapasalamat din ako sa lahat ng local officials sa pagsuporta sa kanila,” he added.
Citing his municipality as an example, Singson said that everybody threw their support behind Marcos and Duterte.
“Walang exception, sumama lahat,” he noted.
Ilocos Sur Gov. Ryan Luis Singson, the Narvacan mayor’s son, echoed the elder Singson’s sentiments and thanked the crowd for coming out even at nighttime to show their support for BBM-Sara UniTeam.
The governor then introduced Duterte as “his vice president and Ilocos Sur’s vice president” to much of the local folks’ delight.
For her part, Duterte, who chairs the Lakas-CMD, thanked the residents and local officials for their warm reception and stressed that unity was the driving force behind BBM-Sara UniTeam.
