Filipino Bishop Says Former President Aquino Should Have Fulfilled His Promise To Be Runover By A Train

Bishop Pabillo

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chroniclesd, Manila Bureau) –  Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo had harsh words for Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte regarding the latter’s recent statement asking for an extension of another six months for the government’s ongoing campaign against illegal drugs.

According to Pabillo, Duterte’s call for an extension basically amounted to an admission that his strategy against drugs was ineffective. He also said it was Duterte’s way of reneging on his vow to resign after six months if his campaign did not succeed. “In the campaign, he categorically said the drug problem would be solved in six months or he would step down. But he is not a man of one word. His words cannot be trusted and he gives a lot of excuses,” the Philippine Star quoted him as saying.

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Pabillo on his way to presiding over a church service at the Manila Catherdral and we asked for his comment regarding a promise by former President NoyNoy Aquino that he and his Transportation Secretary will have themselves be run over by a train if the LRT (Light Rail Transit) Line 1 project from Baclaran to Bacoor will not be completed in two years. That deadline was in 2015.

We asked the bishop if Aquino should also have fulfilled his promise.

The bishop’s answer:

“I’m late for the service, but yes!”
