Martin-SaraPAGUDPUD, Ilocos Norte – LAKAS-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) President and House Majority Leader Martin G. Romualdez expects the show of support for the BBM-Sara UniTeam to reach fever pitch as the “Mahalin Natin Ang Pilipinas Ride” (MNPR) rolls over to Ilocos Norte this Wednesday.

“The support for UniTeam that we saw recently in Isabela and Cagayan was awe-inspiring and we thank the local residents for that. But we’re now here in Ilocos Norte and this will no doubt be mind-blowing in terms of the outpouring of support,” Romualdez said.

Leading presidential candidate and Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) standard-bearer former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. traces his roots to the province, which is scheduled to host a rally for him and his running mate, Lakas-CMD chairperson Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Wednesday night.

The massive rally will be held at the Paoay Sand Dunes.

Before this, the UniTeam pair made various stops in Pagudpod, Bangui, Burgos, and Pasuquin, among others locations to meet local folk and consolidate the backing of officials ahead of the May 2022 elections.

“This is what Solid North is all about. The Marcos name has captured the Ilocano vote; nothing is more formidable here and at the same time more loved by Filipinos in the region,” noted Romualdez.

“Add to this equation the ‘Eagle of Mindanao’ in Mayor Inday Sara, who brings her proven track record as Davao chief executive and her father’s legacy of service. This team is unbeatable and all our fellow Filipinos need to do is to unite with them,” said the Leyte 1st District representative.

The MNPR, which Duterte kicked off in Davao at the start of February, is primarily meant to spread the BBM-Sara tandem’s message of unity.

Marcos and Duterte believe that unity will be the key factor in collectively pulling Filipinos out of the muck that resulted from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
