Robin: Issue with Sen. Joel is Water Under the Bridge

With a handshake, Sen. Robinhood “Robin” C. Padilla has deemed resolved his issue with Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva.

Padilla said Wednesday that he and Villanueva discussed the matter during the regular session of the Senate on Tuesday.

“Ngayon, okay na kami (Now we’re okay),” Padilla told reporters on Wednesday morning.

When asked if he was satisfied with hearing Villanueva’s side and if he now considers the issue as water under the bridge, he said, “Opo (Yes).”

He also maintained that there was nothing personal when he said on the Senate floor last Monday that he did not vote for Villanueva as Majority Floor Leader.

“Definitely hindi personal yan. Hindi tayo namemersonal (Definitely it was not personal. I don’t get personal),” he said.

Meanwhile, Padilla stressed he will be a team player in the Senate, including in calling for hearings on bills to be tackled by his Committee on Constitutional Amendments.

“Basta ako, team player ako. Inform nyo lang ako. Sundalo ako eh (I’m a team player. Just tell me what needs to be done. I’m a soldier),” aniya.

Padilla also said he will continue to adjust to his work as a lawmaker even as he continues to find ways to make the common Filipino understand the measures being tackled in the Senate.
