SPEAKER Martin Romualdez and Vice President Sara Duterte were among the first greeters of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on his 65th birthday.

Duterte wished Marcos, her running mate during the national elections under UniTeam, all the best, happiness, success and good health.

Romualdez prayed to God to bless Marcos with good health, wisdom, and compassion.

Duterte, who was also appointed as Secretary of Education (DepEd), expressed gratitude to Marcos for allowing her to work in his administration, serve the Filipino people and attend to the needs of her family.

“Thank you, PBB, and your 250th PAW for ensuring that wherever I may be found in the country during the day, I am home in time to tuck my children to bed. Thank you for putting a premium on the desire of a working mother to be present in her children’s lives. I wish God’s favor upon you as you celebrate your birthday and pray that you are given the strength and wisdom for the difficult road ahead,” she said in her message.

The daughter of former President Rodrigo Duterte posted in her social media accounts an “obligatory birthday selfie” with Marcos.

For his part, Romualdez expressed commitment to President Marcos that in any endeavor and plans, the House of Representatives will be supporting him.

“Upon your shoulders lay the hopes and dreams of 112 million Filipinos. We, the Members of the House of Representatives of the 19th Congress, are behind you all the way as we work together to uplift the lives of our countrymen,” Romualdez said.

“Proceed in this noble endeavor with our fervent prayers and wholehearted support for Your Excellency’s continued success,” he added.

The House leader asked God to continue blessing Marcos with good health, wisdom, and compassion, as well as the strength and conviction to provide solutions to the lingering problems that continuously beset the country today.
