Defeated senatorial candidate Bongbong Marcos called on educational institutions to revise history books to favor his family.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said history books have long been influenced by political propaganda against the Marcos family.
Marcos said history book have been teaching children “lies.”
The regime of Marcos’ father, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos was marked by human rights abuses and plunder of public coffers.
“We have been calling on that for years. Syempre ang nakaupo, under the influence of our opposition, pero ‘di rin naman tama ‘yun,” he said.
“What has been proven wrong is that they continue to contend —essentially, you are teaching the children lies,” Marcos added.
