- Ice Seguerra didn’t mince words against Ronald Cardema
- Ronald Cardeman accused Ice and others of being Dilawan and leftist
Singer-actor and former National Youth Commission (NYC) Chairperson Ice Seguerra threw some cold water on Duterte Youth leader Ronald Cardema.
On her Facebook page, Seguerra blasted Cardema for calling him and another former NYC commissioner actor Dingdong Dantes “Dilawan” and “Leftist.”
A fiery Ice slammed Cardema for using his position in the NYC to further his political ambition.
“Sus, wag mo akong simulan Cardema. Hindi ako ang umubos ng oras sa NYC para sumipsip at gawing ninong at ninang ang lahat ng pwedeng makapitan para makasigurado sa pwesto,” he wrote.
“Ito lang masasabi ko, you have to be accountable for what you did to the NYC to achieve your political plans at wag kang gumamit nang mga strategy na pailalim para lang manalo,” Ice added.
Seguerra’s clap back was triggered by Cardema’s Facebook post accusing him and Dantes of being Dilawan and allowing NPA youth recruitment to thrive by spoiling left-leaning youth leaders to speak out against the government.
“Kaya malakas youth recruitment ng NPA Rebel allies kasi napabayaan niyo na sila lang nagsasalita sa bansa! Sino may tapang magsalita sa inyo para magcondemn sa ganun, WALA,” said Cardema.
While Seguerra acknowledges the problems with NPA youth recruitment, he said there are many more problems that the Filipino youth are facing.
“Though it is an issue, hindi lang NPA ang problema ng kabataan. Kung yan lang ang gusto mong ayusin, lumipat ka ng ahensiya,” Seguerra said.
Meanwhile, Cardema’s accusation was his response to the joint statement signed by Seguerra, Dantes and other former NYC Chairpersons and Commissioners asking the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to junk Cardema’s bid for substitution as a nominee of his winning partylist Duterte Youth.
In the statement, the former NYC leaders stressed that Cardema’s substitution shouldn’t be entertained by the COMELEC at the onset because it is very clear that he failed the age requirement.
“Upon their very own admission on their Certificate of Nomination and Acceptance, former NYC chairman Ronald Cardema and the four other nominee-applicants, undisputedly fall outside the prescribed age set by law,” said the former NYC officials in the joint statement.
