Speaker greets President Marcos a happy birthday, cites him for his leadership

SPEAKER Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez on Wednesday greeted President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. on his 66th birthday even as he reminded the Philippine leader of all the good he has done for the country.

“Happy Birthday, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr.!” Romualdez said in his birthday message.

“Your leadership reflects a strong commitment to improving the lives of Filipinos, a dedication we deeply admire. As Speaker of the House of Representatives and a staunch advocate for your vision, I have the privilege of witnessing your unwavering commitment to progress,” said Speaker Romualdez, who holds the fourth highest position in the land.

Speaker Romualdez has been Mr. Marcos’ constant companion in work-related matters here and abroad since the start of the 19th Congress on June 30, 2022. Some have described Romualdez as the President’s most trusted ally.

As such, the Leyte 1st District representative saw up close the President’s dedication and perseverance in pulling his countrymen from the dregs of the Covid-19 pandemic by pursuing his 8-point socio-economic agenda.

But the Chief Executive also deserves to savor his special day, Romualdez said.

“On this special day, remember the positive impact you have on our country. Your determination to uplift the lives of every Filipino is truly inspiring, and I am honored and privileged to work alongside you in achieving these goals,” noted the leader of the 311-strong House of Representatives.

The Speaker further said: “Wishing you a birthday filled with joy, surrounded by your loved ones, and may the years ahead be filled with success and fulfillment in your mission to better our nation.”
