It was just recently when SMNI, a media company owned by Pastor Apolo Quiboloy held a presidential debate at the Okada Manila Resort Hotel in Parañaque City, Tuesday night, February 15, 2022.

Apparently, Vice President Leni Robredo, Sen. Panfilo Lacson, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno did not attend the said debate.

Pacquiao declined the invitation because his conscience would not allow him to attend the debate.

Lacson refused on the grounds that Quiboloy had already made public his support for the candidacy of Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte.

Robredo and Moreno have other activities scheduled.

Among those who attended the SMNI presidential debate were labor leader Leody de Guzman, former Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales, former presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella, and former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

One of the panelists at SMNI’s presidential debate is an educator and political analyst Clarita Carlos, who was praised and admired by netizens for her excellent and insightful opinions and questions to presidential contenders.

Recently, she gave her opinion to presidential candidates who did not attend the said debate.

“That’s their own prerogative. I don’t think it’s our business to second-guess them. They must have their own reasons, and I don’t think that’s important,” she said.

Carlos also reacted to the rumor about the alleged presidential aspirant who was not in favor of her being a panelist in the SMNI-sponsored presidential debate.
