Sana po ako'y maging worthy at sana po ay tulungan niyo ako para sa loob ng 15 na buwan ay mapagsilbihan po natin ang ating mga kababayang mabuti at lahat po ng nasa legislative agenda, ubusin na natin at ipasa na natin dahil mas magandang magawa na natin ito kaagad.
Acceptance Speech of Speaker Alan Peter S. Cayetano
July 22, 2019
Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything shall be added unto you. As we seek to win the campaign against drugs, crime, and corruption, we also seek to destroy and win the battle against poverty and other things that are killing the Filipino people in our nation. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte or Mayor Rody as he is fondly called, wants a safe and comfortable life for all. The House of Representatives, the House of the People are partners with the Duterte administration.
We are partners in pursuing a better life for all Filipinos, whether we talk about teachers, about senior citizens, about young people, OFWs, professionals, our teachers, government workers, workers in the private sectors, or out-of-school youth, rich or poor, young or old, of whatever persuasion, of whatever religion, we are all connected and united. Regardless of a religious belief, of our personal circumstances the verse I started with is actually a guide and a fundamental truth. In layman's terms, it's very simple when we say seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, we are saying, gawin natin kung ano ang tama, let us do what is right.
People love their congressmen, but they love to hate Congress. This is something I ask all of you in unison. Let us change that because this is the House of the People. We should respect, and love our congressman but we should also feel that the House of Representatives is the House of the People. Tayo po ang takbuhan ng sambayanan. We will do what is right, so that we will have a Congress that is relevant, responsive and reliable. United and we commit to God, our people the work of the 18th Congress. Sa lahat po sa inyo, sa miyembro ng 18th Congress, sa lahat ng nagdadasal sa ating Kongreso, maraming-maraming salamat po sa inyong tiwala.
Sana po ako'y maging worthy at sana po ay tulungan niyo ako para sa loob ng 15 na buwan ay mapagsilbihan po natin ang ating mga kababayang mabuti at lahat po ng nasa legislative agenda, ubusin na natin at ipasa na natin dahil mas magandang magawa na natin ito kaagad. Again, maraming-maraming salamat sa inyo.
