Pacquiao admitted that he has businessmen friends who help him in his 2022 bid.

“May mga kaibigan ako dito sa Pilipinas na tumutulong, mahirap naman magsabi na wala, tumutulong kahit papaano para maka-survive,” he said in an interview over ABS-CBN’s TeleRadyo when asked if there are businessmen contributing to his campaign.

(I have friends here in the Philippines who are helping. We can’t say that there’s nothing. There are people who are helping so that we can survive.)

“Kapag may tumulong, sinasabi ko na hindi ako makipag-compromise,” he added when asked if those who are helping him are asking for favors in return.

(When someone is helping, I tell them I will not compromise.)

Pacquiao is running for president under the Probinsya Muna Development Initiative, an allied group of the supposed dominant but now split party PDP-Laban.

The boxer-turned-politician maintained he is firm on running for the highest post of the country, and will only consider withdrawing from the presidential race if he gets instructions to do so from God.
