Senatorial aspirant Emmanuel Piñol went on to his social media account to thank the outpouring of support of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) who campaigned for him in other countries.
“OFWs in Hong Kong are tireless and continuous in their campaign for Number 52,” he said in a public post on Monday (April 18).
He also said that the OFWs used their own money to provide campaign materials such as tarpaulins and standees which they set up along the route to the Philippine Consulate where Hongkong OFWs queue to cast their votes.
“Thank you so much Hongkong OFWs. I am deeply touched and inspired by what you are doing,” Piñol said.
He cited that such support which is done by ordinary people should definitely be reciprocated with loyal service.
Meanwhile, Alumani Ike, an OFW from Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea also expressed support for Piñol and encouraged fellow Filipinos to support him as well.
Benito Claudio, one of his supporters also said that Piñol is the only national candidate supported all over the world by ordinary citizens with their own money and services.
“This fact speaks for itself. Agriculture and Fisheries in our country have been marginalized for the longest time with mediocre government policies and support,” he said.
Apart from the OFWs, various groups and ordinary citizens also supported his candidacy by providing campaign materials and t-shirts.
“I may not be able to shake your hands and thank all of you but I assure to repay you with a loyal and loving service to the people and our country,” Piñol vowed.
