Binay supporters distribute campaign T-shirts, posters in Sta. Fe town
SUPPORTERS of Vice President Jejomar Binay and Sen. Gringo Honasan were in Barangay Hilantagaan to distribute T-shirts and post campaign materials in Sta. Fe town, northern Cebu Friday morning.
This despite a Commission on Elections (Comelec) order banning campaign activities during Good Friday.
Rowena Veliganio, a 42-year-old resident of barangay Hilantagaan recalled that she saw some people at the sandbar giving white shirts.
“I ran and thought that it was not a campaign T-shirt. To my surprise it bears the name of Vice President Binay,” she said.
Veliganio showed to Cebu Daily News the shirt which read in bold and capital letters “PRESIDENT BINAY 2016”.
The posters also bore the message “PRESIDENTE BINAY, BISE PRESIDENTE GRINGO.”
The poster also bore the logo of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) and One Cebu logo.
“One of them asked me who would be my president,” she added.
Barangay Hilatagaan chairman Roger Segovia said there were three men who went to his house earlier wearing Binay shirts.
“They just told me that they were here for a swim but I did not expect that they gave shirts and posted posters here,” he said.
Two motor bancas were seen at the island’s sandbar which carried posters of the two UNA candidates.
