Mani na lang! Palace assures safety of Nazarene feast devotees
Devotees joining the Feast of the Black Nazarene should not worry about their safety during the annual procession.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said despite the lack of any credible threat to the Traslacion, the government would remain on guard against any threat to peace and security.
“Well, I don’t think there’s any extraordinary threat. We will exercise the same kind of diligence that we gave done in the past,” Roque said.
He stressed that the current administration is not new to this kind of activity and securing the annual feast will not be a problem for them.
“This is already the second Nazareno for this administration and we know how to maintain peace and order in the Nazareno festivities,” he added.
Around two million devotees are expected to join the major procession on Jan. 9.
