Senator Bam Aquino On Bonifacio Day: Remember Ninoy’s Love Of Country

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Opposition Senator Bam Aquino urged Filipinos to remember his uncle Ninoy’s ‘love of country.’

“Sa darating na Bonifacio Day, huwag nating kakalimutan na ang kanyang pagkamatay ay hindi lang dahil nabaril siya,” Aquino said in a statement.

“ Iyan po ay dahil sa napakalalim niyang pagmamahal sa ating bayan na mas ginusto niyang umuwi kahit na baka makulong at mapanganib ang kanyang buhay kaysa sa manatili sa Amerika na mapayapa naman at ligtas,” he added.

Bam apparently mistook Bonifacio Day as the day honoring  Marcial Bonifacio, Ninoy’s alias used in his fake passport at the time he was gunned down at the Manila International Airport.

November 30 is a Philippine national holiday honoring Andres Bonifacio, one of the country’s national heroes.
