He stated: “Maaasahan naman ninyo hindi ako naglilihim sa inyo o nagsisinungaling sa inyo ever. Kung meron talaga ipapalam ko kaagad sa inyo. Pero ito, pangkaraniwan lang talaga ito na malas ko lang itong panahon na ito na mainit-ulan, mainit-ulan….natsambahan ako dito.”

His sister Kris Aquino earlier told guests present during the event that her brother was ‘not okay’ but refused to provide more details regarding his absence.

Meanwhile, Noynoy’s former deputy presidential spokesperson Abi Valte said in a tweet that the former president is recovering at home and that his condition is “nothing serious”.

She wrote: “Hey folks. Got a lot of questions today about PNoy. Was able to talk to him this afternoon.

He thanks everyone for the concern. He was unable to attend today’s commemoration as he is down with the flu. He is recovering at home. It’s nothing serious, as he said.”
