This Bonifacio Day, Sorsogon Governor Francis “Chiz” Escudero urged Filipinos to recommit themselves to freedom and democracy and reaffirm their love to the country.

Escudero said that the province of Sorsogon joins the rest of the nation in commemorating the 158th birthday of Andres Bonifacio, the Great Plebeian and Father of the 1896 Philippine Revolution.

“Sa kanyang kaarawan, muli nating inaalaala ang kanyang kabayanihan at pagmamahal sa bayan na busilak at walang pag-iimbot. Isang magiting na pinuno ng Kataas-taasang, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan (KKK), tayo ay nagpapasalamat kay Gat Andres sa pag-alay ng kanyang buhay upang tayo ay maging malaya,” said Escudero.

“On this special day, let us recommit ourselves to freedom and democracy, and reaffirm our love of country. These were the three great ideals championed by our revolutionary hero himself,” he added.

Escudero, who is seeking a Senate comeback, also urged Filipinos to vote wisely.

“Sa gitna ng ating pasasalamat, maipakita sana natin kay Gat Andres at sa iba pa nating mga bayani na hindi nasayang ang pagbuwis ng kanilang buhay. Magagawa natin ito sa pagpili ng mga tamang kandidato sa darating na halalan sa Mayo 2022” he said.

“Let us vote wisely. Let us work for an honest, orderly and peaceful elections,” he added.
