DOE Sec. Alfonso Cusi, PDP-Laban vice chairman, said it was “really unfortunate” that Sen. Manny Pacquiao accused the Duterte administration of corruption. Recently, President Duterte challenges Sen. Manny Pacquiao to name the alleged corrupt government offices or officials.
Senator Pacquiao criticized the corruption under the Duterte administration, saying it is “three times more corrupt.” According to President Duterte’s statement, “I am challenging him (Sen. Manny Pacquiao) ituro mo ang mga opisina na corrupt at ako na ang bahala. Within one week may gawin ako. Maglista ka, Pacquiao… praises sa’kin tapos ngayon sabihin mo corrupt… I am challenging you or else talagang sabi nga nila namumulitika ka lang.
If you fail to do that, I will campaign against you because you are not doing your duty. I will tell the people, ” Do not vote for Pacquiao because he is a liar.”
Meanwhile, Paradigm Sports files a breach-of-contract lawsuit requesting an injunction to stop Manny Pacquiao’s challenge for Errol Spence’s welterweight belts. Boxing icon and senator Manny Pacquiao on Monday guaranteed the public his boxing fight with Errol Spence Jr. will push through as scheduled in August despite a lawsuit seeking to stop the match.
