Manila, Philippines - Senate Minority Floor leader Franklin Drilon in his home province in Iloilo called on his fellow Ilonggos to make re-electionist Sen. Bam Aquino their number one senator in the upcoming mid-term elections.

"Dapat No. 1 si Bam dito sa city. Iyan ang hinihiling ni Sen. Drilon sa inyo dito. Dahil makakatulong siya sa kapakanan ng mga Ilonggo," Drilon told the Ilongos in Molo.

Drilon stressed that Aquino is”sincerely concerned” about the Filipino people, noting that he was the first senatorial candidate he endorsed.

"He's one of the brightest Senators I've worked with. He's sincere. He's a man who is sincerely concerned for our welfare- especially sa future ng kabataan," added Drilon

He also cited that Aquino and his family are “dependable allies” in making Iloilo a developed province due to various projects funded during the previous administration.

"Sa aking pananaw, ang ating city kailangan pa ng tulong. Kailangan ko si Bam. Kasi 24 kami. Kung ako lang, mahihirapan ako. Kailangan ko ng maaasahan sa Senado. At si Senator Bam ay maaasahan," Drilon stressed

Drilon also laid down Aquino’s accomplishments, which include the passage of the Free College Law.

Meanwhile, Aquino thanked Drilon for the support in his candidacy.

"Napakalaking bagay ng endorsement ni Sen. Drilon dito sa Iloilo. Mahal na mahal sya at nirerespeto ng mga Ilonggo,"  Aquino said
