(Eagle News)–Senator Manny Pacquiao won’t be able to attend President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address on Monday, July 22, his wife Jinkee said.
“Hindi na siya makadalo sa SONA,” Jinkee told Eagle News.
According to Jinkee, “masakit mata now tsaka di payag and doctor.”
“Makauwi daw siya pwede sa Sunday night pa,” Jinkee said.
President Duterte’s SONA takes place a day after Pacquiao clinched his 62nd win, with a victory over American boxer Keith Thurman via split decision at the MGM Arena.
Pacquiao is a member of President Duterte’s PDP-Laban party.
PDP-Laban leaders had tasked him with announcing the party’s bet for speakership.Meanne Corvera
