Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando on Saturday led the flag-raising ceremony and wreath-laying activity to celebrate the 122nd anniversary of the founding of the First Philippine Republic at the historic Barasoain Church

“Kahit may pandemic ‘di tayo titigil na i-celebrate ito dahil ito’y napakahalaga para sa atin, dito tayo namulat sa katotohanan,” the governor said before the monument of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo..

“Para ito sa mga darating pang henerasyon, tayo ay mawawala sa mundong ito pero kinakailangan ang kasaysayan na ay ‘di mawala at makintal pa rin sa puso ng mga Bulakenyo, ng mga Pilipino sapagkat dito sinilang ang tatlong republika. Dito nag-ugat ang ating kalayaan,” Fernando said in his speech.

Dr. Prospero de Vera III, chairperson of the Commission on Higher Education, served as the guest of honor in this event with this year’s theme “The First Republic of the Philippines: Basis of Goals for the Nation,” according to a Philippine News Agency report.

In his message, the CHR chair said Filipinos can create their own form of government even without foreign colonizers.

“Laging sinasabi na ang ating sistema ng pamahalaan, ang pagbuo ng civilian government ay utang natin sa mga dayuhan, ‘di totoo ‘yan. Ipinakita sa unang republika na kahit ‘di pa dumadating ang mga Amerikano may kakayanan na ang mga Pilipino mismo na magtayo ng sariling pamahalaan,” he said.
