JUBAHIB STIRS UP QUARREL BETWEEN PRESIDENT DUTERTE AND INDAY SARA
DRAGS PRESIDENT IN BLACK PROPAGANDA VS. DEL ROSARIOS
Davao del Norte gubernatorial bet virtual unknown Edwin Jubahib said President Rodrigo Duterte should look into his allegation that former Governor Rodolfo del Rosario and some members of his family “land-grabbed” land of more than 600 small banana farmers.
Dili gusto ani si Presidente (The President would not like this), Jubahib said.
Kinahanglan mahibal-an gyod ni ni Presidente Duterte (President Duterte should know about this), said Jubahib, after accompanying two weeks ago two banana farmers in filing a case against the former governor and other members of his family.
Jubahib has publicly admitted he is giving legal and financial aid to the farmers, in the case related to foreclosure of collateral in the loan secured by the farmers from the Del Rosario-owned Century Rural Bank. Is Jubahib being magnanimous? Pro-poor?
Hardly. POlitics of the most heinous kind is running in his blood.
Jubahib’s act, shaming the Del Rosarios, an institution in Davao del Norte’s political landscape, before the eyes of the President, should be seen as a calculated attempt to draw a wedge between the President and his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. He wants to earn political benefits the dirty way from the fact that the Dutertes belong to different parties.
Jubahib is running for Governor under the banner of the Alvarez Wing of deposed House Speaker 1st District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, secretary general of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino/Lakas ng Bayan (PDP/Laban), the party of President Duterte.
The former bus conductor is pitted against Board Member Rodolfo “Rodney” del Rosario Jr., son of the former governor.
Gov. Anthony del Rosario, younger brother of Rodney is contesting the reelection of Alvarez, while 2nd District Rep. Antonio Floirendo will defend his post against Vice Governor Alan Dujali of the Alvarez Wing.
The Del Rosarios and Floirendo are running under the flag of the Hugpong Ng Pagbabago (HNP), a regional political party organized by president daughter Mayor Duterte.
By urging President Duterte to investigate the Del Rosarios, Jubahib’s agenda is to create a rift between the President, who belongs to the party of Alvarez, and his daughter, Mayor Sara Duterte, who is supporting the Del Rosarios.
This is pure 101 percent dirty politics.
Not only that, this former bus conductor who cannot speak even a single line in English, clearly is an ignoramus as he cannot distinguish between “foreclosure” and “landgrabbing.”
The bank foreclosed the property of the farmer-borrowers because they failed to pay their loan. Foreclosure is a normal and legal process against bank borrowers who default.
And yet this simpleton Jubahib, who dreams of becoming a governor, says it is land-grabbing.
This skunk not only wants President Duterte to quarrel with Mayor Sara: He also wants to create a spat between the President and the Del Rosarios, whose friendship has a long history.
This former bus conductor has full of air in his head. Just because he has become an errand boy for an ex-Speaker, he thinks he can now maneuver the President into a collision with Mayor Inday and the Del Rosarios because he has the insane idea that he would be the governor after the May 13 election. Right now he is bullying President Duterte into a confrontation with the Del Rosarios.
This nincompoop Jubahib thinks just like Alvarez who said that as Speaker of the House of Representatives and the No. 4 Most Powerful man in the country, he can have President Duterte impeached.
Voters of Davao del Norte may simply dismiss this personal assistant/errand boy of Alvarez. For after all he and his ex-Speaker now wallow in the murky bottom of pre-poll surveys.
But his insanity should be allowed to pass. And Jubahib should be allowed to spew out more of the insane ideas in his skull in order for Davao del Norte voters to be amply informed about a candidate for Governor who appears like an escapee from a mental institution!
