In CDO, Pacquiao pays honor to fallen journalists.

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — Before heading to his presidential campaign rally here over the weekend, Sen. Manny Pacquiao paid respect to journalists and other media workers who died in the line of duty.

On Saturday, Pacquiao, his wife, Jinkee, and other senatorial candidates in his campaign laid wreaths at the Press Freedom Monument on the Misamis Oriental legislative grounds.

Members and officers of the Cagayan de Oro Press Club, Inc. accompanied him (COPC).

“Having the freedom to express oneself and having a free press is a part of our freedom and democracy,” Pacquiao remarked.

His visit was also in support of World Press Freedom Day, which was observed on May 3rd.

Pacquiao is the first, and so far, only, of the 10 presidential candidates to visit the monument, according to COPC members.

Before joining the campaign rally, he paid a courtesy call on Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano, asking the public to give him a chance since he will serve, defend, and help Filipinos improve their lives.

“We should open our eyes because I am sickened by every election.” Politicians make fantastic promises at every election, but why are the Filipino people still suffering?” He expressed himself in Filipino.

The Cagayan de Oro City Police Office’s Deputy Director for Operations, Lt. Col. Ariel Philip Pontillas, stated roughly 100 police officers were deployed to provide protection and oversee the adherence of basic public health standards against Covid-19.
