Presidential bet Bongbong Marcos said he idolizes his father, the late former President Ferdinand Marcos, Sr.
“I idolize him. It’s no longer surprising because he was not only dominant in Philippine politics, he is dominant in all our lives. I admire his work. His style of working was impeccable. His heart was for the people,” Marcos said.
At the same time, Marcos vowed to revive the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP), saying it could improve the Philippines’ energy program and help attract more investors.
Marcos also blamed the late President Corazon Aquino for not being able to pounce on the opportunities offered by the BNPP and said “politics” reigned over science with her decision to shut it down.
At the same time, Marcos clarified that he never used drugs.
“I’m a busy man. That kind of lifestyle does not fit me. I have a job to do,” he said.
