Senator Leila de Lima gave an inspiring message to Vice President Leni Robredo on her 52nd birthday Sunday (April 23).
De Lima, a fellow Bicolana, counseled Robredo’s courageous stand amid the relentless assault from supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte who’ve used black propaganda and faux information to destroy her and the legacy of her late husband, former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.
“Pilit man ng ilan na siraan ka at ang pangalan ni Jesse dahil sa kanilang pansariling interes, hinding hindi sila magtatagumpay. Laging nagwawagi ang katotohanan laban sa kasinungalingan, ang mabuti laban sa masama at ang mabuting adhikain para sa ating bansa,” she mentioned in a handwritten message to Robredo.
“On behalf of the Filipino people, I thank you for tirelessly working on your advocacies and serving the country. Muli maligayang kaarawan! Padayon! Dios mabalos!” she mentioned.
