Egay Erice made sure to take a memento with Lolo Elmer, a humble jeepney driver jailed for days for staging a protest with five others.

The Caloocan City congressman had to document the moment as he and Piston supporters celebrated the 72-year-old driver’s freedom after being put behind bars for mounting a protest near Monumento to ask government to let jeepney drivers like them return to service, as they were now struggling to make a living.

“Tulad ng ipinangako natin sa pamilya at sa #Piston6, hindi natin sila pababayaan at iiwanan hanggang sa silang lahat ay ganap na makalaya,” Erice said.

“Sa bawat kaway at hakbang ni Tatay Elmer, mababanayad ang kanyang kaligayahan at kapanatagan,” the politiko added, inspired by all the support which the frail lolo got on social media.
