Home alejandrino duterte pimentel Ex-palace official warns Duterte of Pimentel: 'He wants to be president'
Doctor Ethel Pineda on her Facebook account shared a statement from former Presidential Assistant for Economic Affairs Jose Alejandrino criticizing Senator Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III, calling him a a two-faced man driven by personal ambition.
"He is what the Spanish call "doble cara" or two-face. He is a man in a hurry to be president. He will stab anyone in the back just to attain that ambition. He did not inherit the principles of Nene Pimentel whom I respect," he said.
Alejandrino said that he never trusted Pimentel who he called "spineless and brainless".
"I had called him a damn fool for giving Leila de Lima the chairmanship of the judicial and human rights committee of the Senate that was used as a platform to discredit President Duterte with all those baseless accusations of EJKs," he said.
He said that Pimentel tried to protect De Lima and ket quiet when President Rodrigo Duterte was being attacked by De Lima. He accused Pimentel of delaying the arrest of the lady senator with the help of his surrogate DILG Sec. Mike Sueno.
"I strongly suspect it is Koko Pimentel and the PDP-Laban who torpedoed plans for the people to grant him revolutionary powers. They don't want the president to succeed. That is why the DILG took control of the Feb. 25 event at the Luneta," he said.
"With friends like Koko Pimentel, who needs enemies? My advice to the president is watch your back," he added.
