People close to former President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” C. Aquino III, said that he had kept his health condition secret to many.
In an interview, Deedee Siytangco, former spokesperson of PNoy said that he doesn’t want the public to know his health even when he was already undergoing dialysis for a possible kidney transplant.
Siytangco also said that PNoy already had a heart procedure and doctors were building up his body for that possible transplant before his death.
According to the Aquino family, PNoy has been “in and out” of hospital for medical treatment even before the COVID-19 pandemic started.
He died on his sleep because of renal disease secondary to diabetes on Thursday morning, June 24, according to his death certificate.
Meanwhile, U-P political science professor Aries Arugay said that the Cojuangco-Aquino political clan will continue to get voters’ support as it has become an “element” of Philippine politics.
Professor Arugay made this statement in an interview last Sunday following the death of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
The “Aquino magic” is really an element of Philippine politics and it shows that Cojuangco-Aquino is a brand name in Philippine politics that will continuously have constituency, Arugay added.
