BRO. EDDIE NEXT TO CALL IN SICK?

MANILA, April 20, 2004
 
(MALAYA)
By FRANCIS EARL CUETO - After Raul Roco, is evangelist Bro. Eddie Villanueva "next" to call in "sick"?

Reports that Villanueva suffered from severe chest pains spread yesterday afternoon as the preacher was confined to his residence in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Luis Sison, spokesman for Villanueva, debunked reports of illness, saying that the party itself recommended that he take a day off from campaigning.

Sison said that while the Bohol sortie of Villanueva may have affected him, it was because, he said, they do not have the luxury of free choppers, private planes and vehicles for use, which are enjoyed by both President Arroyo and Fernando Poe Jr.

To prove that Villanueva is fit, Sison said he attended a meeting called to endorse at least six senatorial candidates who have met a seven-point criteria.

"Those who will be chosen will find a place in the Bangon Pilipinas sample ballots bearing Bro. Eddie's name as president," he said.
