Statement of Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Chief of Staff and Spokesperson of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos

10 February 2022

On Lito Banayo’s remark that the common enemy of all the presidential candidates is Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.:

“From where we sit, Lito Banayo is way off the mark. The common and biggest enemy is unemployment. Had he not been hateful, he could not have missed the site of the real enemies, which are unemployment at 6.5% and underemployment at 16.7% based on PSA November 2021 statistics.

In these difficult times, all the more that we should heed the call of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos for national unity as it is vital to strengthen the spirit of tripartism among government, private and labor sector and achieve the common goal for all, job preservation and job creation”.
