A group called AlDuB (Alyansang Duterte-Bongbong) prayed for Davao City Mayor Rody Duterte and vice-presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr during a Duterte-Cayetano rally in San Pedro, Laguna this Friday, April 15. However, a leader of the AlDuB group said that Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano insulted them.
According to Reuben Lista of AlDuB, the group organized the campaign rally of Mayor Duterte and informed Cayetano (Duterte’s running mate) beforehand that they are supporting Bongbong Marcos for vice president. He said that around 90% of the audience belongs to their group, and reminded them not to heckle Sen. Cayetano.
As reported by Inquirer, Duterte and Cayetano arrived at the area of the event at 5 pm, but the rally started at 5 pm, citing heavy traffic during their motorcade. Before the event ended, Pentecostal Church pastor, Bishop Jess Ramos asked the crowd to pray along with him, addressing Duterte as the next president and Marcos as the vice president.

Before the prayer, Bishop Jess Ramos apologized to Sen. Cayetano who was also at the stage that time, reminding him AlDuB are supporting Bongbong, although he wish there could be two vice presidents. Nevetheless, Mayor Duterte said he acknowledged that the event was sponsored by Duterte-Marcos supporters, but commended Cayetano.
“But if you vote for me, give me a vice president I can work with.” Duterte told the crowd at the La Marea subdivision. He then said that Cayetano is a decent man, and cracked a joke, telling him, “If you win win and I lose, give me six months and I will kill the president,” On the other hand, Cayetano thanked the people for coming over.

But for Reuben Lista, who posted his concerns on his Facebook page, he said that Senator Cayetano even insulted the organizers and audience, despite the fact that AlDuB respected his presence because they did not want to show disrespect to their president (Mayor Duterte). He also accused Cayetano of being a gate-crasher.
“As decent supporters of Rody Duterte, We accepted the senator into our house, even permitted his staff to put up their own posters beside ours, partook our food and water, shared the stage with him in spite not being invited – yet he started attacking us by saying we were distributing free tshirts “na tinatanggap naman ninyo pero itinatapon”
