Manila – In an announced attempt to gain back a seat in the government, currently unemployed Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. returned 66 million pesos of their family’s stolen money to the Philippine government.
Marcos Jr. reiterated that this surrendering of the partial amount of their wealth to the government is not in any way a sign of good will that they are admitting their father’s guilt in stealing billions from the government but that he was hoping the government would reconsider his frustrating loss in the vice presidential campaign last May 2016.
In an interview after the filing of the checks, Marcos Jr. clarified his move.
“I am basically giving back this money that really belongs to the Philippine government because I want that vice-presidential seat, plain and simple,” said Marcos Jr.
“But I only want that position to help people and bring progress to the Philippines,” he later added, prompting his supporters into a thunderous applause and cheers.
