(Metro News) Lim tells OFWs: Continue to propagate Filipino values

MANILA, July 3 — Mayor Alfredo S. Lim has urged overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to continue propagating the "cherished and precious" Filipino values by passing these to their children and grandchildren.

Speaking before the 1st Worldwide Conference of Overseas Filipinos for Good Governance recently, the Manila mayor told his audience that even if they are now based abroad, they can still practice and propagate the good traits and traditions that the Filipino people are widely known for.

“Especially, let us teach the future generations not to lie, cheat or steal. These are also incorporated in the Ten Commandments,” he said.

Lim also said that under the administration of new President Benigno Simeon Aquino III, the "truth shall always prevail" as the latter has vowed to stamp out wrongdoing in government.

According to Lim, Mr. Aquino will certainly follow the footsteps of his parents — the late former Senator Benigno S. "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. and President Corazon C. Aquino — who offered so much for the country. (PNA) scs/JES
