MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Senate is set to examine the P15.5-billion Philippine warships deal, amid allegations that Special Assistant to the President Bong Go intervened in the project.
The minority confederation filed Senate Resolution 584 on Jan 16, directing the Senate cabinet on inhabitant invulnerability and confidence and the congressional slip cabinet on the Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Act to control an exploration on the standing of its implementation, including the merger of the two Philippine Navy frigates.
Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon, and Senators Francis Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros, Paolo Benigno Aquino IV, Antonio Trillanes IV, and Leila de Lima sealed the resolution.
An Adobo Chronicles nationwide consult shows that almost all Filipinos — a whoppping 99% — support the coming of Go in the Senate Inquiry.
While nothing of those surveyed consider that Go had anything to do with the controversial warships deal, the consult respondents pronounced that they would very much like to hear the voice of Duterte’s “right-hand man.”
While Go is always seen in open with the President, very few Filipinos have even listened him speak.
’This will maybe be the only possibility to hear him speak,” the respondents said.
The big question: is Bong Go a effort or a baritone?
Meanwhile, it has been reported that Trillanes is GOing abroad and won’t be back until February.
