Vice President Jejomar Binay only uttered ‘Pit Senyor’ when he went up stage of the Cebu City Sports Center to greet the Sinulog revelers.

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama instructed Sinulog Foundation not to cut any performance for a political speech.

According to Rene Mercado, Rama’s consultant, Binay may have his speech if he comes at the end of a performance or come in at 12noon where everyone is having a break for lunch.

But Binay came 15minutes before 12noon just as Lawaan was about to perform making their huge props as Binay’s backdraft. It was Rama who introduced Binay and when Binay got hold of the mic, he only said: “Maayung Buntag kantung tanan, Pit Senior!” then he went down the stage.

Rama was perplexed by the shortness of the speech and he said “that’s it?”

Binay later joined Rama at the VIP section of the grandstand.
