MANILA, JULY 27, 2012 (BULLETIN) Champion boxer Manny Pacquiao adds another feather in his cap by being named Peacebuilding President of the Rotary Club of Manila 101, inducted by Vice President Jejomar Binay, no less.
“Gusto kong mapabilang sa grupong ito. Isang grupong may malasakit sa ating pinagmulan at may layuning makatulong sa bayan sa pamamagitan ng pagsulong ng kapayapaan,” Manny said on “24 Oras,” July 25.
The report added that Manny is confirmed to run for re-election as congressman of Sarangani under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) party.
“Regular member po siya ng PDP-Laban so magkakandidato po siya sa UNA. Ang alam ko congressman uli, eh,” Vice president Binay said.
On “TV Patrol” that evening, Manny expressed gratefulness to have been given the opportunity to champion the rights of the poor Filipinos.
“Malaking karangalan para sa akin ito. Thank you sa tiwala. Magandang ‘yung adhikain na magbigay ng tulong sa mga mahihirap na tao,” he said.
Dyan Castillejo reported that Pacman’s next opponent is still being decided on as he is yet to speak with his promoter, Bob Arum, who will arrive in Manila next month.
