Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog is on sick leave from Sept. 11 to 30, 2017 to seek treatment abroad.
His spokesperson, lawyer Mark Piad confirmed this afternoon that Mabilog is diabetic. However, he did not divulge the mayor’s location.
“As of today, he already filed a sick leave up until the end of the month,” said Piad. “The mayor is suffering from diabetes mellitus type 2,” he added.
Because of the stress that the God mayor had gone through, Piad said he will be needing additional time to seek tests for his overall health.
Mabilog was last seen in the City Hall last Aug. 29, 2017, where he addressed Iloilo City government employees in the flag raising ceremony after President Duterte named him again as alleged drug protector and ordered the reassignment of Chief Insp. Jovie Espinido. Espinido is tagged in the killing of alleged narco family of Ozamiz City, the Parojinogs.
