VG Lagman: FVR is the best Philippine president


Albay Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman believes that the late Fidel V. Ramos is the best president the Philippines had.

“Whenever i am asked who is the best Filipino President, i would earnestly answer: ‘President Fidel V. Ramos,’” said Lagman.

The Vice Governor also paid tribute to the former president who passed away at the age of 94.

“Rest in Peace, Mr. President. Thank you for your excellent service to our country,” he said.

He also lauded Ramos for supporting the reproductive health law.

“And, most of all, maraming salamat po for being one of the staunchest advocates of the Reproductive Health Law which my father Cong. Edcel principally authored,” he said.

“The transcendental importance of the Reproductive Health (RH) Law was not lost on you, sir. Especially when you pointedly advised former President Duterte to fully implement the same. You knew that the “over-population — poverty nexus” was fact. You championed its full implementation because for you the RH Law is indubitably pro-life, pro-health, pro-women, and pro-poor,” he added
