MARTIN Diño, father of Liza Diño, who is now married to Aiza Seguerra, has nothing but praises for the newly appointed chairman of the National Youth Commission.
“Noong una, as a father, gusto ko rin ’yung normal na relationship para sa anak ko. Pero nung nakita ko naman si Liza na masaya kay Aiza, okay naman. Mabait naman si Aiza at responsable,” said Martin, during an exclusive interview at the launch of Miss Global international 2016 beauty pageant in Mandaluyong City recently.
“Noong kinausap ako ni Aiza, mas credible pa s’ya sa tunay na lalaki. ’Yung responsibility n’ya towards family ay napakaganda. First and foremost ang concern ko lang is happiness ni Liza,” said Diño.
“Hanggat nakikita mong masaya ng anak mo at ang pamilya mo, then go! ’Yun lang naman ang pangarap natin sa ating mga anak. Nagpapasalamat ako sa ating Pangulo at binigyan n’ya ng tiwala ang aking anak at si Aiza na pamunuan nila ang dalawang ahensya ng pamahalaan,” he added.
Martin said that many people questioned the capacity of Seguerra and Liza to head local agencies – but he said that they should give them a chance to prove their worth.
“Maraming bu-mabatikos pero subukan muna nila ang kapasidad ng anak ko at ni Aiza,” said Martin, who is chairman of Volunteers against Crime and Corruption.
“Tumutulong pa rin kami sa mga biktima at tumutulong din kami sa kampanya ng Pangulo laban sa kriminalidad at korupsyon,” he said.
Liza, a multi-awarded actress, wed Seguerra in San Francisco, California on Dec. 8, 2014. She was also appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as chairperson of the Film Development Council of the Philippines.
