Masbate BM Arevalo thanks PNoy for his ‘Daang Matuwid’ brand of leadership
Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo thanked the late President Benigno Aquino III for his “Daang Matuwid” policy and his fight against corruption.
Arevalo also lauded Aquino for his statesmanship and decency during his term and his adherence to the rule of law.
“You may have failed to connect with the masses (quite expected as you were not a populist and fond of theatrics and “pakitang tao”) but thank you for the “Daang Matuwid,” the non-selective, no-nonsense fight against corruption, the deep respect for civil and political rights and the sanctity of Life, for the statesmanship and the decency, for upholding the Rule of Law and fighting for our sovereign rights, and for steering this nation into the mainstream of economic competitiveness,” said Arevalo.
“So long, Mr. President. Today, you have gained your wings. Soar high and watch over this nation,” he added.
Aquino died today in his sleep due to renal failure, his family announced.
“Take comfort that these attempts to revisionism barring, history will judge you right,” said Arevalo.
Aquino served as the 15th President of the Philippines.
