Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos on October 4 called on the youth to be more active in responding to issues that concern them
The Ilocos Norte politiko made the remark during her speech before students of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP).
Marcos also recalled her time as Kabataang Barangay chairperson.
“Noong panahon namin ni Congresswoman Arlene Arcillas at lahat ng mga dating SK at KB, ang problema namin noon ay ‘yung out-of-school youth. Araw-araw, talagang tinutukan namin,” she said.
“Ang sigaw namin noon: ‘Makialam!’ Ngayon, sana makialam din kayo sa mga isyu ng kabataan,” Marcos added.
