Press Releases
23 April 2016

Endorsements continue to pour in for Vice Presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos, Jr.

Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Vicente “Bambi” Emano, scion of the influential Emano clan which dominated politics in the province for over three decades, also threw his support behind the candidacy of Marcos.

Emano gave his assurance of support to Marcos in a private breakfast meeting held at the Lasang Secret Adventure Park in the town of Initao, Misamis Oriental last Friday.

The meeting with Emano occurred on the second leg of Marcos’ “Unity Caravan” to Mindanao, which started with a campaign sortie in Gingoog City, also in Misamis Oriental. Marcos was accompanied in the meeting by Davao Del Norte Rep. Antonio Lagdameo.

Also present in the meeting to show his support for Marcos was Initao Mayor Enerito “Gogoy” Acain. He came with his entire slate for the 2016 elections.

Marcos and Emano ended their meeting with a firm handshake.

Gov. Emano and Marcos are both members of the Nacionalista Party and close personal friends. They had also worked together as members of the House of Representatives.

After the meeting, Marcos proceeded to the municipalities of Tubod and Kapatagan in the province of Lanao Del Norte, where he continued to spread his message for national unity.
