In a statement released by the Davao mayor, Sara said the incident never happened as she denied that she went crazy because she wanted the car.

“I categorically deny the story quoting President Rodrigo Duterte as saying that I went crazy because I wanted the car supposedly given to him by Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. This incident never happened,” Sara said in a statement.

“I never saw [a Ford Expedition] allegedly given by Pastor Quiboloy. The president may have referred to another person with Inday as a name, or he incorrectly remembered events,” she added.

Sara added in her statement that the report went unchecked as it was clearly incorrect.

“The problem was it went unchecked and was taken by the media hook, line, and sinker. It was reported as truth. The story was clearly a journalistic mishap,” Sara said.

“It was unfair and injurious to me as someone named in the article, something which would have been avoided had the writer conducted a simple process of verification,” she added.

In 2016, then Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte allegedly recounted how he tried to return the gift-SUV to the pastor in an interview with Quiboloy itself.

“Binigyan ako ng Expedition, pagpunta ako ng airport P300, hindi na makabalik. Sabi ko, ‘Iyo na iyan.’ Binalik ko. Tapos, itong si Inday nagwala kasi gusto niya. Sabi ko, ‘Saan ka ba kukuha ng pang-gasolina? Para kang buang diyan,’” Duterte said.

In the same interview, President Duterte also admitted that he received properties as gifts from Quiboloy.

Recently, Quiboloy interviewed President Duterte again as he warned Sara not to seek to be the country’s president as it makes her miserable.
