Former DZMM radio host and entertainment writer Jobert Sucaldito questioned Kapamilya actress Nikki Valdez after the latter compared the issue of her home network ABS-CBN and Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth)
In a tweet on August 8, Valdez pointed out that executives of ABS-CBN didn’t miss any congressional hearings while the officials of PhilHealth are already expressing their intention not to attend the senate hearing that would investigate the alleged corruption of the government-owned corporation.
“Yung mga boss po namin sa ABSCBN present sa lahat ng hearings. Mga walang tulog at pahinga maipagtanggol lang ang kumpanya namin. Sa Philhealth di pa nagsisimula ang hearing, maysakit na yung mga tatanungin?” Valdez said.

As a response, Sucaldito said that he was wondering why many people were criticizing the Duterte administration due to the alleged corruption activities discovered in PhilHealth.
According to him, people should wait for the result of the investigation first.
He also told Valdez that the issue of PhilHealth is different from what happened to the ABS-CBN franchise renewal attempt.
“Hoy, mali kayo – malayong magkaiba iyon. Like itong comment ni Nikki Valdez (sa totoo lang, love ko ang batang ito pero I’d like her to understand a bit) na kesyo ang mga boss daw niya sa ABS-CBN ay kahit pagod at walang tulog ay kumpleto ang attendance sa hearing ng franchise pero itong taga-Philhealth daw hindi pa nag-uumpisa ang hearing ay nagkasakit na- meaning, hindi na makakadalo nang personal,” Sucaldito said.
“So, anong isyu niyan sa ginagawang imbestigasyon ng government? Sa palagay mo ba palalagpasin ito ng mga kongresista? Hindi sila mga b*b*, Nikki dear. They will rule on this – maghintay ka lang. Sa palagay mo ba makakaligtas ang mga ito, most especially si Gen. Morales, kina Congressman Marcoleta, Remulla and Defensor? Huwag mo munang pangunahan dear.” he added.
“If you want, sundan mo na lang si Gabby Lopez sa Switzerland or kung saan man siya tumakbo dahil mukhang di ka pa naka-move on sa pagkasara ng ABS-CBN. Iba na ang isyu, pilit mo pa ring idinikit. Kaloka!” he also said.
Sucaldito became a critic of ABS-CBN after he was suspended because of raising an issue about a Kapamilya actress’s love life.
He worked for the ABS-CBN-owned station for 17 years.
