“Integrity means being consistent in one’s behavior under every circumstance, including those unguarded and tempting moments. Almost two decades ago, I could still remember a former head of this very office who knowingly certified an erroneous handwriting specimen analysis of the once infamous fictitious character named Jose Pidal, who laundered over P200 million in secret accounts,” he added.
“Rest assured that the malasakit governance we have been implementing will continue to ensure that people who are less in life would enjoy more government’s malasakit under President Rodrigo Duterte through sufficient funding on education, health and other social services,” said Romualdez, the outgoing Leytefirst district representative and the chairperson of the House Committee on Accounts, whose group was one of the 51 party-list organizations proclaimed winners by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) last Wednesday night.
PETER Joemel Advincula, the confessed real ‘Bikoy’ who appeared in a series of anti-Duterte videos prior to the May 13 national and local elections surrendered to the Philippine National Police on Wednesday and yesterday tagged opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and the Liberal Party as the ones behind the ‘Ang Totoong Narcolist’ videos.

Peter Joemel Advincula, the man who claims to be Bikoy, yesterday said that all his claims in the narco-list videos were lies.

Donna Patricia Manio, head of the DLSU Media and Public Relations-Office for Strategic Communications, said that no such meeting as alleged by Advincula ever took place inside the DLSU campus. Advincula has alleged that the ‘Bikoy’ videos were hatched during a series of meetings with personalities from the camp opposed to the Duterte administration held inside two universities in Manila, DLSU and Ateneo.

“I am not the correct person to endorse someone to be the next Speaker. I only have a personal bet but do not intend to influence Congress. It is best if the newly elected members of the House of Representatives individually decide who among those who are interested to become the next Speaker can truly bring good governance and positive change to Congress, to the Filipino people, and to our country,” said the Davao City mayor.
