DAVAO CITY, Philippines — (UPDATE 2) Influential religious leader Pastor Apollo Quiboloy made no endorsement of any presidential and vice presidential candidate, but almost came close to disclosing his personal choice for president on his birthday celebration here Sunday.
While Quiboloy, founder of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, insisted that he would reveal his choice for president and vice president according to God’s revelation on May 2, he gave clues to his personal choice for president.
When asked by reporters what qualities he was looking for in a president, Quiboloy answered, “Magaling at matalino,” hinting at Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard bearer Gilbert Teodoro, whose campaign slogan was “Galing at Talino.”
