Bangsi Festival: Pacquiao pays respect to Maitum fisherfolk

MAITUM, Sarangani (January 29, 2022) – Senator Manny Pacquiao graces the culmination ceremony of the 15th Bangsi Festival on January 28 at the municipal gym. In his speech, Pacquiao recalls the years when he was still a fisherman. “Naranasan ko din po ang pangingisda at hindi po simple at madaling trabaho iyon, buhay din ang itataya mo para sa trabahong ito,” Pacquiao said. “Labis-labis ang aking respeto sa ating mga kababayang mangingisda na isa sa may pinakamalaking kontribyusyon lalung-lalo na dito sa Maitum kung kayat ipinagdiriwang natin itong Bangsi Festival,” he added. He also commended the Local Government Unit of Maitum headed by Mayor Alexander Bryan Reganit with the full support of Vice Mayor Tito Balazon and the rest of the Sangguniang Bayan members for the successful celebration of the 15th Bangsi Festival. To achieve a progressive community, Pacquiao reminded, “ang kooperasyon at disiplina ng bawat residente ay napakalaking bagay sa patuloy na pag-unlad ng Maitum.” (Martin Fernando Bernad Jr.-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
