0 181

Senator Panfilo Lacson paid a short tribute to his former “boss,” the late former President Benigno Aquino III, a day before the lawmaker formally kicks off his presidential bid.

Lacson tweeted that February 8, the start of the campaign period for national positions, happens to be Aquino’s birthday.

“Tomorrow, February 8 signals the start of the campaign period for the May 2022 elections. It is also the birthday of one of my most admired public officials – a former Senate colleague and 15th President of the Philippine Republic – the late Benigno Simeon Aquino III. RIP Boss,” Lacson tweeted.

The former Philippine National Police chief served as rehabilitation czar of Yolanda-hit areas under Aquino.

Lacson will launch his candidacy with his running mate, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, in Cavite.
