‘Di DDS! Vico Sotto stands out with refusal to do fist bump with politikos
Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto proved he’s independent-minded by refusing to do the fist bump pose even when he’s surrounded by politikos who did.
Sotto simply smiled for the cameras during the relaunch of the Pasig River ferry Monday.
In contrast to Sotto, the politikos who did the fist bump included Senator Bong Go, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade and Metro Manila Development Authority General Manager Jojo Garcia.
Sotto’s subtle refusal to be branded as an administration ally earned the admiration of several netizens.
“A mayor who doesn’t need to go with flow; please the old man; make sipsip to become a pet….for him it’s all work & purely service for his people,” said Twitter user @godfatherJK5.
“That’s MY mayor,” said netizen @noelledeg.
Vico Sotto does not need make sipsip to pduts. He is NOT trapo like many politicians now,” said Twitter user @mara0162.
