Mayor Chua receives Marcos biological marker from NHCP
Batac City Mayor Albert Chua on September 10 officially received the biographical marker of former president Ferdinand Marcos from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).
The biological marker was installed at the recently-relocated “Daytoy ti Bannawag” monument.
It reads: “Nagtapos ng abogasya sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas, 1939. Nanguna sa Pagsusulit sa Pagkaabogado, 1939. Kasapi ng 14th Infrantry USAFIP-NL ng Kilusang Gerilya, 1944-1945. Nanungkulang Kinatawan ng Ikalawang Distrito ng Ilocos Norte, 1949-1959; Senador, 1959-1965. Pangulo ng Senado, 1963-1965. Pangulo ng Pilipinas, 1965-1986. Isinailalim ang Pilipinas sa batas militar, 1972-1981. Nagpataupid ng mga programa, proyekto, at batas sa ilalim ng balangkas ng ‘Bagong Lipunan.'”
The Batac city government hopes that the biological marker will rejuvenate the city’s tourism.
Batac City’s tourism took a hit after the late dictator’s remains were interred at the Libingan ng mga Bayani last year.
His remains, that was originally displayed at the Marcos Mausoleum, was Batac’s main tourism attraction for years.
