ABS-CBN chairman emeritus Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III urged lawmakers to look at his records to dispel doubts regarding his commitment to the Filipino people. The House of Representation resumed its deliberation over the granting of a new franchise to ABS-CBN which expired last May 4, 2020.
Lopez said their commitment to the Filipino people is not a job but actually a calling:
- Vice Ganda thanks lawmakers who supported ABS-CBN: “Iboboto nila kayo ulit porshur”
- SolGen Calida to ABS-CBN: “And now, the end is near”
- ABS-CBN CEO Carlo Katigbak maintains no violation on ownership, citizenship, and 50 year franchise limit
“I stand by my record over last 35 years. I have been committed to the people of this country, it is a trust that has been passed on to me by my father and by his father before him… It is a trust that has been given to me and in fact I always tell our employees, dito sa ABS-CBN po, it is not just a job, it is a calling.
So please, if you are going to look beyond the technicality and talk about allegiance, please look at my record over the last 35 years po.”
