FBI suspect and self-Appointed Son of God Apollo Quiboloy has clarified that he is not against the administration after airing concerns about President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) saying that it lacks peace and order concerns.

In his program aired on Wednesday (July 27), Quiboloy said that he and his network are not part of the opposition. He also said that he just wants the President to succeed.

“We want the President to succeed, but how can you succeed without peace and order?” he said in his program posted on YouTube.

This comes after the alleged sex trafficker in the United States (US) expressed dismay that Marcos did not include these peace and order problems in his SONA speech.

Paano naging kontra kami kung sinabi namin ‘Bakit hindi nabanggit ng Pangulo ang peace and order, yung sa about sa insurgency, yung about sa illegal drugs, yung about sa NTF-ELCAC.’ Masama ba yun? ‘Yun ang responsibilidad ng pangulo di ba? Yun ang hinahanap ng tao,” Quiboloy said.

(How did we become opposition when we just asked “Why did the President not include peace and order, insurgency, illegal drugs, and NTF-ELCAC?” Is that bad? It is the responsibility of the President, right? That’s what people are looking for.)

All that Quiboloy looked for were common sentiments from former President Rodrigo Duterte’s previous SONA, where he almost always only talked about his drug war and anti-insurgency programs.

According to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC) founder and leader, those alleging he is now opposed to the Marcos presidency due to his comments are showing “false loyalty.”

Quiboloy backed Marcos in his presidential bid of Marcos in the last elections. He prayed over Marcos and his running mate Sara Duterte-Carpio before the elections. He is also a close ally of the Dutertes.
