MANILA, Dec. 22 — President Benigno S. Aquino III extended his Christmas message to the Filipino nation Saturday thanking every citizen for their contribution in building a culture honestly and generosity towards others as the country moves forward.

“Pagkakataon ang Pasko para magpasalamat sa lahat ng biyayang ating natamasa. Sa ngalan ng buong pamahalaan, nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng Pilipinong nakiambag sa pagtatag ng kultura ng katapatan at malasakit sa kapwa,” the President said in his message aired over government-run radio station and posted on a government website on Saturday.

“Dahil sa kakaibang pagsusumikap na ipinakita sa tuwid na daan, higit na nagiging makabuluhan ang Paskong Pilipino.”

The President recognized the contributions of every Filipino in realizing major programs spearheaded by the present administration.

Among these projects include the Sitio Electrification Program, which now energizes so many communities, giving joy to people as they celebrate the Yuletide season, the President said.

Because of the support of the Filipino people, the government’s Conditional Cash transfer program was a success, the President said. The program provides assistance to poor families for them to have better lives and good health.

“Malinaw po —ang bawat butil ng tagumpay na ating inaani ay nagmula sa ipinunlang pagsusumikap ng sambayanan; kayo po, ang aming mga Boss, ang gumawa nito.”

“Muli’t muli nating pinatutunayan sa mundo… bukod tangi ang Paskong Pilipino dahil sa kahandaan ng bawat isang maging tanglaw sa kaniyang kababayan, hindi lamang tuwing Kapaskuhan, kundi sa araw-araw na pagbagtas sa tuwid na daan. Isang maligayang Pasko po sa inyong lahat,” he added. (PNA)
