Atty.Bruce Sinupalpal si Bambam Aquino "Trapong senador"
Atty Bruce V. Rivera, a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte responded to the misinformation posted by a fanpage named “Madam Clauda”
The fanpage claimed that Senator Bam Aquino must be credited for the additional P8-B funds allocated for the State Universities and Colleges.
But Bruce Rivera responded to Madam Claudia’s post on Facebook and tried to explain that Bam has nothing to do with the free tuition this year.
He criticized Bam Aquino for not prioritizing the free higher education bill during his cousin former President Benigno Aquino’s term.
According to the Senate.gov.ph, the Free Higher Education for all act was filed by Aquino on June 30, 2016 during President Duterte’s term.
“Basahin niyo po ng mabuti ang sinabi niya. Batas na ginagawa pa lang. And the yellows take credit? Also, tatlong taon ka na sa Senado, now mo lang naipasa yan? Ngayon lang ba tayo nagkaroon ng P8billion? Or sa panahon ng pinsan mong President, walang perang ganun.”
Rivera believes that Free Education for College Students is a right and not a privilege. He also said that it’s not even an achievement if President Duterte would enact a law giving free tuition to all SUC’s student.
He said that Bam Aquino was only showed his “trapo” side when he allegedly tried to take the credit for the free tuition next year.
“Ang ginawa ng administrasyon ay pagpapatupad lang ng dati na karapatan na libreng pagpapaaral sa SUC. It is not even a privilege that is granted but a right. Sinabi ko na hindi ito achievement kung maipatupad ng President kasi it is what it should be. So tell Bam Aquino, he should not take credit for something that is supposed to be there all along. Pinapakita niyo lang kung gaano kayo ka-Trapo.”
The camp of Aquino said in a press release admitted that the bill filed by Sen. Bam is not yet a law, but they are optimistic that it will passed next year because of the support of the Senators
