Narvacan Mayor Chavit Singson said the late mother of former president Joseph Estrada was instrumental in mending their broken friendship.
The Ilocos Sur politiko said he sent flowers to the wake of Estrada’s mother.
“Nag-umpisa ‘yan noong namatay ang nanay niya. I sent a flower,” Singson said.
“Sabi niya, ‘Bakit di sya mismo?’ Pumunta ako right away. Nagulat silang lahat dahil malinis naman ang konsensya ko. Di ako guilty,” he added.
Singson explained that he knew Estrada even during his acting days.
“Si President Erap, artista pa lang kilala ko na dahil ang nanay ko producer ng film. So marami nang nagawang pelikula. Kilala ko na sila ni Fernando Poe, si Erap, lahat,” he said.
