Binay posts Facebook video to dispel rumors about poor health: ‘Busy tayo sa pag kakampanya’
Senatorial candidate former Vice President Jejomar Binay is busy campaigning in the provinces ahead of the elections, contrary to rumors he is in poor health.
The latest health speculation prompted Binay to appear in a video on Facebook and Twitter to show he remains in good health while on the campaign trail. In the short clip, the senatorial aspirant said he is currently visiting Isabela, his mother’s hometown, and that the weather is good.
“Dios ta umma kanikamu ngamin! Nandito tayo sa Isabela. Kahit mainit, busy po tayo sa pag kakampanya. Sana nasa mabuting kalagayan kayo lahat. Huwag po nating kakalimutan Binay number 11 sa balota! #NoToFakeNews #BinayThereDoneThat #OnlyBinay #Binay11SaBalota #BinaySaSenado,” the veep tweeted.
The video post was shared after MOCHA party list nominee Mocha Uson called on the Commission on Elections to look into the health condition of Binay ahead of the polls. The former Palace official claimed it would be “a grave injustice to the voters if he is elected but could not perform his functions because he is not physically or mentally able to do so.”
The camp of Binay has shrugged off Uson’s latest petition questioning the former Vice President’s health, saying it was “laughable, pathetic, and desperate.”
“Nakakalungkot lang na merong mga gustong siraan ang pangalan ni VP Binay, na malinaw ang track record ng paglilingkod sa ating mga kababayan, dahil pasok sya sa Magic 12 sa senatorial race at sinusuportahan sya ng Iglesia Ni Cristo, kilalang political leaders at local officials,” the Binay camp wrote on Facebook.
