While saying that he does not feel alluded to with the “E di wow” potshot of President Benigno Aquino III during his last State of the Nation Address, Vice President Jejomar Binay said PNoy’s statements were “wow na wow.”
"Merong isang bahagi doon palagay ko hindi naman ako pinatutungkulan 'nun. Kasi ang pagkakasabi, 'Meron diyan nagsasalita na giginhawa ang bayan pero ang salita lagi ay basta, basta.' Wow na wow naman ‘yun," Binay told reporters.
Aside from this, the Vice President did not give any more comment but just said that the public should just wait for his True State of the Nation which he will deliver “in due time.” He did not say when is that specific time will be.
Asked why there was a need for an alternate SONA, the Vice President said that this will be the opportunity for questions posed by the media and other pundits to be tackled.
"Meron dapat mga responses, 'yung mga tanong ninyo 'yun ang kasagutan," said Binay.
During Monday’s SONA, Aquino noted the statement of his unnamed critic against Daang Matuwid.
"Kahit kaliwa’t kanan na ang ebidensiya ng pagbabago, mayroon pa ring kontra sa Daang Matuwid. Ang hirit nila: Mabagal daw tayo. Kapag sila raw ang naging Pangulo, sigurado, gaganda ang buhay. Sa mga medyo may edad po, ang isasagot dito, ‘Ah, ganun?’ sabay taas ng kilay. Para naman sa kabataan, iba na raw po ang tugon nila sa ganoong pahayag, iba na daw po ang uso ngayon eh: ‘E di wow!’,” he said. —KG, GMA News
