Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo said that former Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio is the best chief justice we never had.

“Happiest Birthday, Senior Brod, the best Chief Justice this nation never had! An intellectual giant, prolific lawyer and principled jurist, true patriot and staunch defender of our sovereign rights well-meaning Filipinos will always remember you by,” said Arevalo.

Arevalo is a fraternity brother of Carpio, who both obtained their law degree from the University of the Philippines College of Law.

“The legal profession is infinitely richer because of your presence and principles. For us who know your true worth and substance, you made us still believe in our being lawyers and officers of the court,” he added.

For his birthday, Arevalo wished Carpio some time out and to celebrate it with his family and friends.

“This nation values your contribution and there’s no doubt about that. The other noble tasks can wait a little while. One day of fun and thanksgiving with folks and friends won’t matter that much,” said the politiko.

“God bless, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio! And continue to be a blessing to this nation and our people,” he added.
