Message of Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on the commemoration of Bonifacio Day

We are one with the whole Filipino nation in commemorating the 158th anniversary of the birth of Gat Andres Bonifacio.

Gat Andres Bonifacio’s profound courage and fervor in pursuit of our country’s independence and emancipation from its colonizers have truly and greatly contributed to the freedoms we are relishing today.

Let us all pay tribute to the Father of Philippine Revolution by emulating his patriotism, bravery, and sense of camaraderie, that helped awaken in our forefathers’ the desire for liberation and self-determination.

May it also ignite in our hearts the collective will to respond to societal ills and challenges, such as poverty, insurgency, terrorism, corruption, illegal drugs, and the COVID-19 pandemic for our nation’s progress and development.

May this desire propel our nation towards justice, prosperity, a comfortable life for all Filipinos, and our recovery as one nation.

We wish everyone a meaningful celebration of Bonifacio Day!
