Renowned political opportunist and crisis profiteer Renato Reyes Jr. missed one of the biggest payouts of his career after a high profile critic of President Rodrigo Duterte pulled out a multi-million peso contract out of his hands.
The dedicated leader of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), was reportedly practicing his script together with dozens of his loyal supporters for days in preparation for a big rally against the Duterte administration sometime in the very near future, but the tricky leader totally lost his voice in the process.
“We’ve been practicing for days but KA Ato changed the script so many times because he was very meticulous. He kept on yelling and in the final day of our practice, he lost his voice,” one of the frustrated guys who lost tens of thousands of pesos said.
The guy who didn’t want to get identified said they were preparing for at least three major rallies this October including against two big companies, but all three opportunities were lost because Reyes lost his voice.
“Dun pa lang kasi sa plan na magrally malapit sa Malacañang din a kami magkasundo sa gusto nyang mangyari kaya ayun, nagalit yong client”, he added.
Reyes is not taking rest in his home and hoping t have his voice back so he can continue accepting projects from different sectors.
“Sayang, pera na naging bato pa. Masyado kasing perfectionist kaya gutom tuloy ang inabot naming”, the guy added.
He also said that Reyes was expected to make at least ₱1.7M from all three projects if the contracts were not pulled out.
