DAVAO CITY , Philippines – Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard-bearer Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro yesterday said the presidential race is still a tough fight for him despite the endorsement given by evangelist Pastor Apollo Quiboloy of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ the Name Above Every Name congregation.
“It is still an uphill climb ahead. That is why I need your prayers, I need the prayer of every Filipino. The climb uphill is not an easy one. But truly, I am humbled, let us all pray together as we all go together in this endeavor. I ask of you to be with me,” Teodoro said.
On Sunday night, Quiboloy endorsed Teodoro in a global worship service attended by 50,000 of his followers. The endorsement was also broadcast by congregation-owned Sunshine Media.
