The Office of the Vice President categorically denies the false story being circulated in social media which claims that VP Leni Robredo requested priority landing at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for a flight she was on. This never happened and is a malicious fabrication.

During her entire tenure as Vice President, VP Leni has never asked to be prioritized for taking off or landing when traveling by air. Any claim to the contrary is a lie.

It is alarming that almost a week after the elections, the disinformation and fake news being spread on social media against VP Leni continue unabated. Lying, unfortunately, has become a full-blown industry on social media. VP Leni reiterates her commitment to take firm steps against disinformation and promote truthful public discourse.
