Is this hakot! UniTeam reportedly “recruited” thousands for a grand rally

The millions of people supporting Bongbong Marcos’ bid for the presidency has always been questionable given his family’s background

UniTeam’s rally in Bacolod City might not have been as organic as many thought it was.

Before the event started, several trucks carrying people of all ages were caught on video. Netizens assumed that the UniTeam hired the groups to appear at the rally.

The millions of people supporting Bongbong Marcos’ bid for the presidency has always been questionable given his family’s background. It has been speculated that his camp pays for attendance. This time, someone from Bacolod witnessed it.

City buses were used for the caravan, leaving passengers waiting for transport. Those who were recruited were reportedly paid around 500 pesos each.

Around 70,000 to 80,000 supporters were expected to greet the candidates, and it sure looked like it based on close-up videos and photos. However, a shot from a drone said otherwise.

Voters also noted how times really changed. During the martial law era, Negros Occidental suffered gravely. The Escalante massacre resulted in 20 being killed.

Fortunately, Bacolod natives still haven’t forgotten what the martial law era brought. Negros Occidental suffered from famine as well.

Negros Occidental Vice Gov. Jeffrey Ferrer said the majority of mayors in the province support UniTeam.

“I have not talked to Bacolod lone district Rep. Greg Gasataya, but I assume he will also support BBM because he and Bacolod mayoralty bet Alfredo ‘Albee’ Benitez belongs to one political group,” Ferrer said.

He also shared that he has been bashed on social media since he supported the Marcos-Duterte tandem.

Meanwhile, the rally in Antique has been rescheduled, Atty. Vic Rodriguez, the spokesperson of Marcos, confirmed on Wednesday.

“The caravan-cum-rally which was set for February 24, 2022, by the BBM-Sara UniTeam in Binirayan Sports Complex, San Jose De Buenavista in the province of Antique was not canceled. It was reset to another date,” Rodriguez said in a statement.

“We decided to adjust our schedule to a later date in the spirit of peace and unity,” he added.
