By Leslie D. Venzon

MANILA, Sept. 28 (PNA) — President Benigno S. Aquino III on Monday called on local government officials to push forward his administration’s good governance platform which is important for the future of each Filipino and the country.

In his speech before the 2015 national assembly of League of Barangays of the Philippines held at the Marriot Hotel in Pasay City, the President underscored the need to continue the positive reforms through supporting “Daang Matuwid”.

“Sa gabay ng Panginoon at sa patuloy nating pagkakapit-bisig sa Daang Matuwid, sama-sama nating huhubugin ang isang Pilipinas na talagang maipagmamalaki natin at ng mga susunod pang salinlahi,” he said.

The Chief Executive noted that every Filipino has ability to do what is right and reasonable to achieve desired goals for his country.

“Kung gusto pa nating marating ang mas matatayog na pangarap, kailangang nating isulong ang Daang Matuwid. Idiin ko lang: Sa susunod na eleksiyon, di lang anim na taon ang nakataya, kundi ang mismong buhay at kinabukasan ng bawat Pilipino. Kung lilihis nga po tayo sa tuwid at talagang subok sa 2016, walang nakakatiyak na makakabawi pa tayo pagdating ng 2022,” he added. (PNA)
