GMA mourns Espenilla’s death, salutes his ‘exemplary leadership’
House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on Monday expressed her condolences to the family and loved ones of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Nestor Espenilla, who died on Saturday.
“We mourn the demise of Governor Nestor Espenilla, who steered the BSP with great dignity as he pursued his ‘Continuity Plus Plus’ program in response to the formidable responsibility that President Rodrigo Duterte entrusted him, of further strengthening the economic foundation of our country through economic policy,” she said in a statement.
Espenilla lost his battle with cancer on Saturday evening. He was 60.
“Even during my Presidency, Nesting Espenilla showed exemplary leadership as BSP Deputy Governor for the very sensitive Supervision and Examination Sector,” Arroyo said.
“I take pride in his accomplishments during my turn, as I salute him for his work in the Duterte administration, and I extend my respectful condolences to his family,” she said.
