UniTeam supporters attended the inauguration of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) headquarters in Pasay. The event was led by Ret. Gen. Thomson ‘GT’ Lantion, PFP secretary-general; Atty. George Briones, PFP legal counsel; and other PFP officials.
MANILA — Some 500 volunteers on Tuesday attended the inauguration of BBM headquarters in Pasay City turning the simple activity into a festive and memorable event even as they promised that they would be able to match the previous successful caravans launched by UniTeam in various parts of the country.
“Naiinip na kami. Gusto naman namin ipakita na kaming mga taga-Pasay ay nakahanda ring magpakita ng suporta kay BBM at papatunayan din namin na hindi kami bayaran,” said Aling Teresita Ledesma who is a househelper.
She confided that she just asked permission from her boss to witness the inauguration of BBM Headquarters at the Madrigal Compound on Roxas Boulevard of the said city.
Leading the inauguration of BBM HQ were ret. Gen. Thomson ‘GT’ Lantion, secretary general of the Federal Party of the Philippines (PFP); legal counsel Atty. George Briones and other PFP officials.
According to Lantion, he was also surprised because among all the BBM Headquarters they inaugurated, Pasay HQ was one of the most well attended .
“Ipinaaabot po ng ating Presidente Bongbong Marcos ang mainit niyang pagbati sa inyong mga taga-Pasay. Huwag po kayong mainip dahil papasyalan kayo rito ni BBM sa mga susunod na araw,” said Lantion.
The occasion was made even more fun when BBM supporters, as well as Lantion and Briones, sang and danced during an impromptu program.
This developed as Lantion said they were aware that many Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) live in Pasay City . which prompted him to schedule a miting de avance for them on April 1.
“Sa April 1 po abangan n’yo iyan. Magkakaroon po ng Overseas Filipino Workers miting de avance. Forty-five countries po ay may Partido Federal ng Pilipinas sa buong mundo, makikilahok po iyan at makikilahok live stream ang ating mahal na Pangulong BBM at si BBM,” he said.
Meanwhile, a SK official said that BBM’s name is now spreading through word of mouth in every barangay in Pasay City.
“Hindi nila kami kayang bayaran dito dahil ako na po ang nagsasabi, solid BBM ang buong Pasay,” said the SK official.
The inauguration of BBM HQ was organized by an admittedly loyalist family ever since.
They declined to be named, but they vowed to fully support BBM’s campaign.
“Iba ang magnet ni BBM sa tao. Si misis ko talagang loyalist, pero kapag nakikita mo si BBM talagang mapapahanga ka sa kanya. Malumanay magsalita, walang yabang at ang maganda sa kanya, pilit na siyang ginigiba pero hindi siya kailanman pumatol sa kanyang mga kalaban,” said the head of the family who requested anonymity.
