Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. said the people should watch out for the next chapter of his political career saying he will have his own version of “Resurgence”.
In his Keynote Address at the 80th Anniversary celebration of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Manila on Monday, November 7, Marcos said just like the fight of Senator Manny Pacquiao with Jessie Vargas last Sunday and the “never-say-die” mantra of basketball team Ginebra, he will come back stronger since he has a lot more to offer.
“(K)umbaga sa Ginebra, “never-say-die” dapat! ‘Ika nga po ng tema ng laban ni Senator Manny Pacquiao: Resurgence. Babalik po tayo. Babangon at babawing muli tayo. Marami pa tayong ibubuga. Pansamantala lamang po ito. Abangan ang susunod na kabanata!,” he said to a thunderous applause of those in attendance.
He said that despite his pending election protest and his status as a private citizen, he has decided to go around the country to personally thank those who supported him in the last elections.
“And so, I roam around and personally convey my appreciation of their trust in me. Kahit ako ay “off-duty” nang pansamantala, ito ay aking ginagawa dahil kailangan kong tumanaw ng utang na loob sa sambayanang Pilipino. Maraming salamat po sa inyo,” he said.
He then thanked the NBI and its Director Dante Gierran for inviting him to grace the affair which also coincided with the opening of the agency’s Art Exhibit and Painting Contest for the benefit of the Children’s Joy Foundation.
“I am truly honored to be here. I would like to thank the leadership, Director Dante Gierran, and the entire family of the NBI for seeking me out and inviting me to partake in the festivities of your 80th founding anniversary. Nakakataba po ng puso na ako ay inanyayahan ninyo rito,” he said.
