Robredo: I leave everything to God


LIBERAL Party (LP) Vice Presidential bet Leni Robredo did not wish for a victory in the May polls when she turned 51 on Saturday.

She said in leaving everything to God.

“Hindi ko naman pinagdadasal na manalo pero pakiramdam ko, kung ano iyong nakalaan, siya iyong mangyayari (I don’t really pray to win but I feel that what’s meant to happen will happen),” Robredo told reporters after celebrating her birthday in Camarin, Caloocan with several urban poor organizations — Camarin Balikatan Community Association, Inc.; Mabini Lapu-Lapu Neigborhood Association, Inc.; Samahan ng Responsableng Anak ng Nayon, Inc.; and San Vicente Urban Ferrer Urban Development Community Association, Inc.

“Hindi ko na iyan winiwish [na manalo]. Nung namatay ang asawa ko, parati na lang akong Thy will be done (I don’t wish to win. Since my husband died, I just say to myself, Thy will be done),” she added.

Robredo’s birthday celebration, which started with a Holy Mass, marked the first time that she did marked her special day outside Naga City, Camarines Sur.

She was joined by her three daughters Aika, Tricia and Jillian, Kris Aquino and Paolo and Judy Roxas—the son and mother of LP standard bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas 2nd.

Robredo, however, had a few wishes: a peaceful election, victory for deserving candidates and good health for her and her three daughters.

  1. So near yet so far. Libre naman ang mangarap, at least, she’s been to many places during her campaign rally. Digong will call her naman pag may bakante sa kanyang gabinete.

  2. tony de leon on

    this statement of leave it god is not so good to be a VP. she reminds of late cory Aquino who is so religious but led the country to shambles. the country need a strong and intelligent VP like bong bong marcos. and not one who will just leave everything to god. susmariosep.

  3. Well, at least, Senyora Leni has made peace with herself. Anyway, kumita na with the campaign funds so I guess, uuwi pa rin sya na masaya. The campaign gave her national exposure which should help well when she runs against Bonget in the next presidential election.

    • I dont see any chances for her to run against BBM, she’s nothing compared to the achievement of BBM. C’mon, wag naman nating hayaan na maging training ground ng isang neophyte ang pagiging second in command sa ating gobyerno. 30 years is enough para matuto tayo.
