Coney Reyes’s reaction to her son Vico Sotto: “I’m always praying for my son. I pray that he will fulfill what the Lord has planned for him and I’m just always telling him to trust God and do well. Trust God and do good dahil you cannot do anything. We are nothing apart from God.”

Watch the full interviews of Vico Sotto:

“Nakikiusap po ako sa ating nasyonal na pamahalaan. Baka naman po puwedeng bigyan ng konsiderasyon yung tricycle. “Hindi na po para sa tricycle driver, hindi na po para sa tricycle driver. Para po sa public health and safety. “Dahil ako po, sa risk assessment na ginawa namin, kapag hindi po natin pinayagan ang mga tricycle, mas marami pong mamamatay.”

If the transport system of the health workers is ok, I’m okay with the Law, said Vico Sotto.
