In a press briefing at the Manila City Hall on Tuesday, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said he was offered 5 million a day to drop his promise to get rid the city's streets and sidewalks of illegal vendors.

May nagpaparating lang sa akin na mensahe: P5 million daw a day, P150 million a month, P1.8 billion a year. Ngayon, whether it is true or not, I don’t know,” Moreno said.

When asked what the bribe was for, he replied, “Para dating gawi. Same-same.”

Simple lang ang sinabi ko. 'Subukan niyo.' Oh, hindi na tumawag,” Moreno said.

Moreno said he would stick to his promise.

We will be consistent, persistent in putting order in the City of Manila,” he said.

“Ibabalik ko ang kalsada sa mga taga-Maynila,” he added.
