A text published by Juan Noboa, one of the three sons of businessman Álvaro Noboa, has turned around on social networks until it went viral.
In the text called “I am staying with Álvaro”, the young man defends his father from the videos, memes and other content that circulates about the former presidential candidate and hopes that he will not launch again to seek this dignity again.
“It has turned from cancheros to carry off carrying” Alvarito “. I was watching an interview by David Reinoso with Luis Vivanco (..) and while Luis was laughing at David for saying that he has voted for my father and would vote for him in the future, I stumbled upon a reality: because of his occurrences and posts there are a large group of people who want to describe my father as crazy and crazy. I do not blame them. I even understand them. It makes them feel intellectually superior to make fun of someone who is in the public eye and has even run for president, ”the text says.
“Do you know who Álvaro is? Let’s put Alvarito aside for a while and review a couple of details about Álvaro, ”continues the young man in his extensive Facebook post.
The young man refers to Noboa’s history as an entrepreneur, beyond being “heir”. “He buys the inheritance from my grandfather’s second wife and is plunged into gigantic debts that he had to pay throughout his life with the sweat of his forehead and his ingenuity in situations of extreme pressure. Debts that, if they had not been fulfilled, would have broken him financially, and only financially because I know his character and that is unshakable, ”he argues.
“If you see all the companies you have grown and the new ones you have created, all the lives you have changed generating employment and the challenge you have managed to overcome? I want you to risk all that and try to help change the country that is collapsing, “he says.
He continues explaining that at this point the argument he had to defend his father’s “sanity” weakens. “Only a little crazy would do something like that,” he says.
“I personally believe that there is nothing dirtier than Ecuadorian politics. however there it was. He served as a successful chairman of the Monetary Board and was blatantly robbed of the elections in 1998. But he had a call that was not going to go easily and was launched several more times, fighting against the partycracy that was not going to allow anyone to be out of his circle stop the party, ”he writes.
He claims that Alvaro Noboa undertook his fight against the country’s poverty and ran into Rafael Correa, who in addition to striving to destroy his image, threatened to take away part of his legacy.
“Perhaps it is partly because of having faced death when he was kidnapped and tortured, or perhaps it is because he had Luis Noboa Naranjo, the greatest entrepreneur in the history of the country, as a father and mentor, but Álvaro is not made of the same than the rest of us. Is different”.
He maintains that part of that eccentricity is reflected in his posts, in “the hurricane confrontations.” “Be careful those videos are going to confuse you and underestimate your intellectual capacity the day you have to debate with him or confront him in the professional field because that would be his biggest sin,” he says.
“Ecuador has not elected him as president. Ecuador currently prefers another candidate profile. He prefers another type of courage, another type of integrity. He prefers people that the only heritage they have put at risk is yours (…) He prefers candidates who have not managed a store but who speak beautifully and the only eccentricities they manifest are those they exhibit at parties and trips that they arm with the money that has been stolen from them in contracts. They prefer great thinkers, masters, and PHDs. ”
He also referred to the works carried out by the Cruzada Nueva Humanidad Foundation, which has been working for 35 years assisting the marginal neighborhoods of the country with medicines and food and which is managed by Alvaro Noboa and his wife, Dr. Anabella Azín.
“From the bottom of my heart, I hope he does not run for president again. So you can keep the satire, the memes, the videos and the mockery. They can keep Alvarito ”.
Alvaro Noboa is a Guayaquil politician and businessman, leader of the extinct Institutional Renewal Party of National Action (PRIAN), founded by himself, when he separated from the Ecuadorian Roldosista Party (PRE).
He was a presidential candidate in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2009 and 2013, without being elected on any of these occasions.
