Like anyone who is about to celebrate his birthday, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has a wish for his upcoming 45th birthday.
But his wish is not himself, but for the nation’s capital – and that is, to have a day when all rules and laws are followed.
Domagoso will be turning 45 on Thursday, October 24.
According to the Mayor, he does not expect to get any rest, even on his birthday, because he will lead the opening of three health centers in Manila.
So instead of asking for material gifts from the public, Domagoso said what he wanted most was a day in the nation’s capital without crimes and violations.
“Since you are always saying that I need to rest, now I will rest, so let’s help each other to clean, follow simple rules, no cutting trip, while to all robbers out there, can you also take a rest just for a day?,” he said.
“That’s my only wish. Because if that will happen, I don’t need to work because Manila is peaceful and will be in order,” he added.
It was also learned that the Mayor had been receiving letters, cards and tokens from people from all walks of life since the first week of October.
