Mayor Santiago calls for prayers for Marawi
San Fernando City Mayor Edwin Santiago, on Independence Day, urged Filipinos to pray for peace in Marawi City and the entire country.
The Pampanga politiko also released doves to signify the country’s independence from Spanish occupation.
Santiago led city officials in laying wreaths to the monuments of the country’s heroes at the Heroes Hall.
“Mga Kababayan, ngayon na hawak natin ang ating kalayaan, sama-sama tayo na maging sandigan ng isang malayang pamayanan,” Santiago said.
“Ngayon na ang ating bansa ay nasa estado ng kaguluhan sa Mindanao, lalo nating paigtingin ang pagpoprotekta sa ating kalayaan,” he added.
