QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Ex-President NoyNoy Aquino finally broke his silence and reacted to the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee’s report on the botched Dengvaxia vaccination program which put the lives of over 800,000 Filipino school children at risk.
Senator Dick Gordon’s committee recommended that criminal charges be filed against Aquino and key members of his administration.
In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles at his Times Street residence in Quezon City, Aquino said:
”Kung alam ko lang na aabot sa ganito, sana nagpasagasa na lang ako sa tren.” (Had I known it would come to this, I should have just let myself be runover by a train.)
Aquino was, of course, referring to his botched promise that if the MRT project during his administration would not be completed on time, he’d let himself be runover by a train.
Is that promise finally coming to fruition?
