Message of President Aquino to Iloilo City on the occasion of their Dinagyang Festival, January 25, 2013

My warmest greetings to the people of Iloilo City on the occasion of the Dinagyang Festival.I join the entire Ilonggo people in honoring your patron, Señor Sto. Nino.

This event underscores the vitality of our faith and our culture and warmth as Filipinos in the lively rhythm of the Ilonggo community. Let this festival also be a celebration of your solidarity in upholding Iloilo’s heritage. With guidance from Señor Sto. Niño, let us continue on the straight and righteous path and demonstrate passion, integrity, and excellence in our endeavors.

The past year has illustrated our capacity to fulfill our collective aspirations when united in spirit and purpose. Let us stay the course and build on what we have achieved, guided by our pride in our communities. This festival, indeed, is a proud affirmation that it’s more fun in the Philippines.

I wish you a happy and meaningful gathering.
