VP Binay to Focus on Government Duties
Amid allegations of corruption against him and his family, Vice President Jejomar C. Binay on Saturday said he remains focused on his responsibilities as housing czar and President Aquino’s adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers’ Concerns.
The Vice President said his supporters have encouraged him to keep going despite allegations that he and his family gained from projects of the Makati City government.
“People have been telling me not to be disheartened and that they know the allegations hurled against me and my family are politically motivated since I always figure prominently in popularity surveys and the fact that I have openly declared my plan to seek the Presidency in 2016,” Binay said in the vernacular.
He stressed that he will not let the allegations affect his work.
“Hindi po magbabago si Jojo Binay. Hindi ko po kakalimutan ang aking trabaho, (Jojo Binay will not change, I will not neglect my duties and responsibilities),” he said.
Binay lamented that a lot of issues are being associated with him, including the failed bombing attempt at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport the NAIA and the alleged overpricing of the construction of the Makati City Hall II building.
The Vice President maintained that the allegations are baseless and “politically-motivated.”
