Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Thursday, February 27, was the speaker at the 11th Philippine Councilors League (PCL) National Convention held at the SMX Convention Center.
Domagoso’s speech is a call for action for a united country despite the challenges of cultural diversity.
“Iisa ang ating bansa, tigilan nating ‘yang pagkakawatak-watak, pinaghihiwalay na nga tayo ng ating mga isla, pinaghihiwalay na nga tayo ng ating mga salita, pati ba naman sa puso’t damdamin natin hiwa-hiwalay pa tayo?” he lamented.
Likewise, Domagoso emphasized the significance of patriotism and assured the city’s full cooperation toward the betterment of the nation.
“Always remember that no one will love this country except us. Kaisa n’yo kami, kaisa n’yo ako,” the Mayor stated.
