Former Cagayan de Oro city mayor Vicente Emano, who’s now running as vice mayor, says he was forced to run for the position alongside Jose Gabriel “Pompee” La Vina because her daughter and city councilor Nadya Emano-Elipe declined to run since her husband is gunning for Misamis Oriental’s vice gubernatorial race.

COUNCILOR Leon Gan denied yesterday rumors that former Mayor Vicente Emano underwent a surgery last week due to complications in the stomach.
In a press statement, Gan admitted though that Emano was hospitalized for several days but it already happened several months ago, in particular last June.
Gan further said that Emano underwent a non-invasive procedure to clear his heart veins from any foreign particle.
Emano is the vice mayoral candidate of PaDayon Pilipino, running against reelectionist Vice Mayor Reineir Joaquin Uy.
“Wala g’yud to niagi og knife surgery. Mayor Dongkoy’s heart condition is now good as new and is cleared from complications after enduring one-day blockade of foreign particles in his heart veins,” Gan said.
Gan is the spokesperson of PaDayon Pilipino, the local opposition party challenging the incumbency of the ruling PDP-Laban in the 2019 midterm elections.
“It was a mere general checkup in June 2018. It was fortunate for the Emano family that the father of PaDayon Pilipino agreed to take medical examinations following fears of his body condition,” Gan said. “The former Cagayan de Oro mayor would not want medical checkups previously. He was confined for several days for him to understand how important a medical checkup was for his health condition.
Gan believed that rumors about Emano’s alleged failing health were revived recently due to his candidacy.
With that, Gan assured the public that Emano is ready for the next political battle in May next year.
