MANILA — Vice President Jejomar Binay on Monday said that he is expecting more political issues against him.
“We anticipate that they (detractors) will intensify their efforts using other agencies of government,” Binay said.
The statement was made in time for the resumption of the Senate blue ribbon committee’s hearings on the alleged corruption done during his term as Makati City mayor.
Binay is bracing himself for more intrigues “in the Senate and through agencies like the Commission on Audit (COA), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Ombudsman and the AMLC.”
He also said that he sees the continuation of the issues with no factual basis and with the goal of destroying his image.
“Their narrow-minded objective is simply to vilify and embarrass me without even any factual basis to support their claims… This is why I am reminding our people: the lies against me will continue, using the Senate and different agencies of the government. They will continue to try and destroy your strong support for me,” Binay said.
Unfazed by the issues, Binay however said that he will not let the issues stop him from his goals of serving the public.
“I will not be hindered by a few from our shared goal of establishing a government serving the people with sincerity, proven competence, and compassion. I am ready to fight their continued attacks if it means being able to serve the Filipino people,” he said.
