RIGHT after naibalitang nakapag-file na ng kanyang COC ang pambansang mang-aawit ng “Anak” na si Freddie Aguilar bilang senatorial candidate under PDP-Laban, nag-issue agad ng derogatory remarks ang dating Senate President na si Koko Pimentel na diumano huwag daw seryosohin si Freddie dahil “rogue” candidate lang daw ito.
Maraming ibig sabihin ng salitang “rogue,” pero malapit ito sa salitang fake, fraud, scam o self-imposed. Tinatawanan lamang ni Freddie Aguilar ang nasabing batikos dahil kampante siya sa go-signal sa kanya na galing mismo kay Presidente Rodrigo Duterte.
“Siya (Pimentel) ang dapat hindi seryosohin dahil fell out of grace na siya sa partido ni Pres. Digong at mas bagay sa kanya ang salitang “rogue,” ayon sa statement ng mga supporter ni Freddie led by the well-known campaign strategist/king maker na si Ares Teng at ang presidente ng famous Owoep Talent Agency na si Ana Lou Chua-Olivar.
Kamakailan lang, itinaas ang kamay ni Freddie ng chairman ng membership ng PDP-Laban ng kabuuang Mandaluyong City Council na si Anthony Del Rosario sampu ng buong brotherhood ng Guardians sa isang pagtitipon-tipon para suportahan si Freddie.
Tinampukan din ito ng mga miyembro ng Filipino Artists, Musicians, & Entertainers Society (FAMES) headed by Jograd Dela Torre and Lito Camo as president kasama ang “Friends of Freddie Aguilar, Ang Tunay na Boses Ng Masa,” organized by Atty. Bayan G. Balt, chairman of the Christians and Muslims for Peace (CAMP), and Domingo A. Canero, Nat’l. Pres. of Hukbong Federal Ng Pagbabago.
