Speaking before a crowd of "kakampinks" at the San Pablo Cathedral Grounds in Laguna on Friday, Feb. 11, Robredo said she still has a long way to go before she could catch up to the numbers of her opponents in the presidential race.

"Pero kakayanin po nating humabol dahil nandiyan kayo (But we can catch up because you're there)," she stressed, banking on her supporters' initiatives to campaign for her.

Robredo enjoined her supporters to help her in the fight against disinformation and told them to not allow the elections be won by misconceptions.

"Maghahabol pa tayo kaya kailangan po in the next 87 days gawin po natin lahat na magagawa natin para siguruhin natin na yung lahat na problema sa disinformation, lahat ng panlilinlang, ay babasagin natin dahil ayaw po natin na ang eleksyon madedesisyunan sa maling pag aakala (We will catch up and in the next 87 days we need to do everything to make sure that all the problems in disinformation, all deceptions, will be broken because we don't want the elections to be decided by misconceptions)," Robredo said.

She further said that it is their "assignment" to pour all their hearts and efforts throughout the campaign period to win the elections.

In a separate address to supporters during her visit in Barangay Kanluran, Calauan, Laguna on the same day, Robredo reminded the voters not to easily believe candidates and their promises.

"Ang pakiusap ko lang po sa inyo, 'wag tayo basta basta maniniwala. Titingnan po natin yung pagkatao, titingnan natin yung track record na pag sinabi niyang mahal ko yung mahihirap, papaano niya pinapakita ang kanyang pagmamahal sa mahihirap (My request to you is not to easily believe them. Look at their personality, check their track record and the things they have done to prove their love for the poor)," the Vice President said.
