BBM optimistic country could hurdle pandemic challenge

MANILA — President-elect Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos on Thursday expressed confidence that the country can survive and recover from severe economic devastation caused by the still lingering pandemic, with the help and full support of the people.

“Malakas po ang loob ko sa ating kinabukasan, kahit po marami po tayong nakikita na hahadlang sa ninanais nating pagandahin ang Pilipinas. Malakas po ang loob ko na magsabi na meron pa rin tayong maliwanag at magandang kinabukasan at nasasabi ko po yun dahil nasa likod ko ang lahat Pilipino,” Marcos said in his speech during the 10th Cityhood Anniversary of Bacoor.

He explained that his optimism stems from the full support he is receiving from the majority of Filipinos who voted him overwhelmingly into office.

“Nasa likod ko ang lahat ng ating mga kababayan, lahat ng nagmamahal sa Pilipinas at narinig po ang tinig ninyong lahat na magkaisa, ang tinig ninyong lahat na tayo ay ipagbuklod natin ang galing ng Pilipino, yan po ang gagawin natin,” BBM added.

BBM likewise highlighted the Filipinos’ innate ability to face all forms of challenges and emerge victorious in the end.

“Sa galing ng Pilipino, sa sipag ng Pilipino, makikita po natin, aahon ulit tayo, gaganda po ang ating kabuhayan sa tulong po ninyo,” he added.

This, as he appealed to all Filipinos to continue the movement of unity that they had started during the campaign that he said will lead everyone to a better life.

“Ipagpatuloy po natin ang sinimulan ninyo, nung kampanya, ang taong bayan na ang namuno sa pagkakaisa, ipagpatuloy po natin yan, at ako po ay nandito inyong abang lingkod,” BBM continued.

“Marami po ang kailangan natin gawin, ngunit sa tulong ninyo, sa pagkakaisa ninyo, sa ating pangarap na pagandahin ulit ang buhay ng Pilipino, itong ating pangarap na maging mas maayos, mas mapayapa, at mas maganda ang ating buhay ay magiging totoo kapag tayo ay nagkaisa,” BBM stressed.

The president-elect also said that there are individuals and groups who are already coming to him to extend their help to the country.

“Marami pong gustong tutulong sa atin, marami po akong nakita at nakausap ngayon na mga Pilipino, na ngayon ay lumalapit at nagsasabi na nais nilang tumulong” Marcos pointed out.

The Bacoor 10th Cityhood Anniversary is Marcos’ first public appearance since he was proclaimed by Congress as the 17th President of the Philippines.

During his speech, Marcos thanked the people of Cavite for the overwhelming votes the BBM- Sara UniTeam received during last May 9 national elections.

“Nung natanggap ko ang imbitasyon galing sa inyong buthiing Mayor, ay sinabi ko, siguro naman karapat-dapat na ang una kong pag labas bilang President- elect, ay mag punta ako at magpasalamat sa mga taga- Bacoor at sa mga taga- Cavite,” BBM stressed. (ai/mtvn)
