“Ayaw rin talaga ng aking pamilya kaya naisip ko na siguro ay hindi ko pa panahon sa ngayon. Diyos lang ang nakakaalam kung kailan ang tamang panahon. Ayaw ko ring maipit si Pangulong Duterte higit pa sa tatay ang pagmamahal ko sa kanya,” Go said in an ambush interview.

“In the past few days, I realized that my heart and my mind are contradicting my actions. Talagang nagre-resist ang aking katawan, puso, at isipan. Tao lang po ako na nasasaktan at napapagod din,” he added.

Go was running for the presidential seat with the support of no less than President Rodrigo Duterte under the ruling PDP-Laban party.

“Mr. Belgica should stop sowing intrigues that divide forces loyal to the President. He should stop this dirty politics,” Lakas-CMD said in a statement on Saturday.

The party issued the statement after Belgica said on Friday that Mr. Duterte’s allies conspired against and undermined the President when Lakas-CMD, Hugpong ng Pagbabago, Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) and Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) forged their UniTeam alliance to support Marcos and Mayor Duterte.

BELGICA: BONGBONG, GMA TREACHERY BEHIND BONG GO SHEDDING TEARS

By ROGER M. BALANZA

Political treachery by people that President Rodrigo Duterte, whom he had served for more than two decades, had helped was the reason why Senator Bong Go came to a point of shedding tears in a recent speech.

In the speech, Go, who is running for president in the 2022 elections with the support of Duterte, assailed what he called as “dirty politics” played by the political traitors.

An official of Go’s party, Bishop Grepor “Butch” Belgica, has given hints who these “traitors” are.

“The President helped them with their personal lives. He helped in the burial of his father and (in her) acquittal, ” Belgica, Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs said in a follow-through statement on Go’s emotional speech.

Go, in the recent speech where he talked about those conspiring against Duterte, did not name names.

Belgica, also the national adviser of Pederalismo ng Dugong Dakilang Samahan (PDDS), also did not give names but clearly referred to former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Lakas-CMD chairman, who is supporting the presidential bid of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., son and namesake of the lare dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr.

They are now conspiring against Duterte, said Belgica.

In 2019, Arroyo thanked Duterte for “providing the atmosphere” that led to the dismissal of the plunder charges against her., said Belgica.

In 2016, despite strong public opposition, less than two months after being elected President, Duterte allowed the burial of the late dictaor at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Duterte, chair of theruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), had long expressed that he would like Go to succedd him after his term expires in 2022.

Go has filed his bid to run for president.

Duterte’s choice ofGo as the next President has not impacted on Arroyo and Marcos.

Marcos is running for President, with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as his vice president, with the full support of Arroyo and her Lakas-CMD.

This is the very reason why Go turned emotional in a speech and cried “dirty politics, ” said Belgica.
