Noynoy to have Easter Sunday meeting with Bro. Mike
IMUS, Cavite , Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III yesterday said that his scheduled meeting with El Shaddai leader Bro. Mike Velarde will push through, even if the charismatic leader had virtually saved his closest rival Sen. Manny Villar Jr. from the C-5 road controversy.
Aquino said the Easter Sunday meeting will most likely proceed, as he sees no problem with the political preference of Velarde, who wields political influence borne out of three million El Shaddai members, both locally and globally.
“Bro. Mike as a religious leader can be one of those who can make sure that lines of communication are kept open and we avoid any incident we all want not to happen,” he said.
