MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Senator Grace Poe earlier delivered a public prayer seeking divine intervention so that the University of the Philippines (U.P.) wins in this year’s UAAP Finals over Ateneo.
Poe attended U.P. before moving to Boston to finish her undergraduate degree.
Many have said that the last time U.P. was in the basketball finals, the country “deposed a dictator, Ferdinand E. Marcos.” They are hoping that a U.P. victory this year would lead to President Duterte being deposed as well.
Poe has similar hopes, but went further by saying that if U.P. loses and Ateneo wins, she will step down as a Senator.
Quite a deal, we’d say.
