Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla paid tribute to his “ninong”, the late former Cavite Governor Ayong Maliksi who died last week.
Revilla posted on Facebook photos of Maliksi’s funeral rites which was attended by Cavite officials including incumbent Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla.
In his post, Revilla expressed grief on the passing of Maliksi and said that the late governor’s legacy will forever remain in the hearts of every Caviteno.
”Nakalulungkot na magpaalam sa isang tinitingalang lingkod bayan at ninong, ngunit batid namin na nasa mas mabuting kalagayan na kayo sa piling ng Poong Maykapal. Marami pong salamat, Gov. Ayong Maliksi! Mananatili kang buhay sa aming mga puso at alaala,” Revilla said.
Maliksi, 82, had been in public office for nearly 40 years. He served as Cavite governor from 2001 to 2010.
