ABS-CBN honors PNoy in a heart-wrenching tribute video

Despite being out of free TV following the non-renewal of their franchise, ABS-CBN used their current available platforms to air the heart-wrenching tribute video.

Following the death of former President Benigno Noynoy Aquino III due to renal disease as a complication of his diabetes, ABS-CBN pulled off a tribute video for the late former President.

Despite being out of free TV following the non-renewal of their franchise, ABS-CBN used their current available platforms to air the heart-wrenching tribute video.

The video showcased Aquino’s legacies during his term as President, highlighting his contribution to the upliftment of the country’s economy and his fight against corruption and advocacy for transparent and good governance.

“The Filipino is worth fighting for!” Dinala mo ang bansa sa matuwid na daan. Higit sa lahat, inuna mo ang pagtuyod ng ating bayan. Maraming maraming salamat po, PNoy.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN’s relationship with PNoy is not at all smooth during his term. With several news reports and commentaries criticizing his government, PNoy also made some critical statements against the network and some of its anchors.

There were also rumors that PNoy allegedly refused to renew the ABS-CBN’s franchise when they applied during his term.

Foreign Affairs Sec. Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. in his tweet in 2020 alleged that the former President also didn’t want to renew ABS-CBN’s franchise. Locsin said PNoy had expressed a lukewarm attitude towards the network’s franchise renewal.

But Locsin in his latest tweet also honors the man he called brave and incorruptible.

He also added that while he knew PNoy was not fond of him, it will be impossible for him not to admire the man.
