Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado bids goodbye to her ninong and Lakas-CMD stalwart FVR
Cavite Rep. Lani Mercado lost somebody close to her and her family with the passing of former President Fidel V. Ramos.
Mercado bid goodbye to FVR as she mourned his death.
“Kaisa ang samabayanang Pilipino, ang inyong lingkod, at ang aming pamilya na nagdadalamhati sa pagkamatay ni dating Pangulong Fidel Valdez Ramos,” she said.
Ramos was her ninong and was also the father of the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats, she said.
It was because of FVR that her husband, Sen. Bong Revilla, got into politics, she said.
“Si FVR ang father ng LAKAS CMD Party. Siya rin ang dahilan kung bakit napasok si Senator Bong Revilla sa politika. Inimbitahan ni FVR ang aking kabiyak na tumakbo bilang Vice Governor ng Lalawigan ng Cavite kasama ni dating NBI Director Epimaco Velasco,” she said on Facebook.
She paid tribute to Ramos’ numerous achievements and condoled with his family and loved ones.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Ninang and former First Lady Amelita ‘Ming’ Ramos and their loved ones. Salamat and Rest in Peace, Ninong FVR!” she said.
