Sen. Joel Villanueva joins Dabarkads on Eat Bulaga’s Bawal Judgmental segment

Senator Joel Villanueva will be the guest judge on the January 9 episode of Eat Bulaga’s Bawal Judgmental.

“Isang karangalan po ang ma-imbitahan ng Eat! Bulaga sa kanilang Bawal Judgmental segment. Excited po tayo pakinggan ang mga kwento ng ating mga manlalaro,” Villanueva said.

Villanueva is known for steering the lead agency promoting technical-vocational education to greater heights.

In his five-year stint as director general of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), he earned the monicker TESDAman after he advocated for tech-voc as a means for workers to uplift themselves from poverty through the “Training, Trabaho, TESDA” campaign, which produced over nine million skilled workers.

As a senator, he passed significant pieces of legislation to protect and promote the welfare of workers such as the Work-from-Home law, Occupational Safety and Health Standards law, First-time Jobseekers Act, among other laws.

The Bulakenyo senator is married to Gladys Cruz-Villanueva and they are blessed with two children. His father, Bro. Eddie Villanueva, is the founder and Spiritual Director of the Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Church Worldwide and currently one of the Deputy Speakers in the House of Representatives.
