Updates on the manifesto of support for BG Danny Lim
BGen Danny Lim’s reaction released through his lawyer, Vicente Verdadero:
I am humbled by this expression of support.
Not one to shirk away from the challenges and responsibilities, I accept the mantle of leadership bestowed upon me by the collective wisdom of the leaders and followers of the various reformist groups.
I will do justice to the trust and I commit myself to the attainment of the aspirations for a country of peace,progress and prosperity.
Statement of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, through its spokesman Lt. Col. Ernesto Torres:
1.It is the inherent right of everyone to express his thoughts and his support to anyone or anything as an invocation of freedom of expression;
2.Likewise, everyone who desires to serve the country and the people are given opportunities to do so, as long as none of these threatens our national security;
3. However, the pronouncement of support ismhighly questionable, as retired Maj. Gen. Johnny Gomez, who is alleged to be one of the signatories, denied joining the group of BGen Danny Lim and expressing his support for the cause. Apparently, his name was used without his consent;
4. The AFP in all ranks and at all levels of command shall remain loyal to the constitution and the duly constituted authorities;
5. It shall remain free from partisan politics and true to its mandate to protect the Filipino people and to preserve the integrity of the country;
6. Any digression from the sworn duty shall not be tolerated.
We, the undersigned, hereby officially declare that we have formally united under the leadership of BGen. Danilo “Danny” Lim.
We have agreed to unite for the following reasons:
We aspire for the collective vision of a country of peace, progress and prosperity;
We are fully aware that our country is slowly being engulfed by the fires of poverty, war and corruption;
We concede the need to strengthen our ranks in the face of a ruthless enemy;
We recognize our people’s longing for change and their desire for a new breed of leader.
We have chosen BGen. Danilo “Danny” Lim for the following reasons:
He has the essential leadership qualities to steer us towards our vision;
He has the impeccable character to lead with moral authority;
He has consistently displayed uncommon valor and patriotism in the face of extremely difficult situations.
We have been forged in adversity; we are now ready to answer the call of duty…
For God, country and people.
