As the nation marks the former senator's 35th death anniversary, President Rodrigo Duterte says the country needs more citizens like Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr.,

"In this time of real and lasting change, we need more citizens like him so we can steer our country towards the direction where a brighter and better future awaits us all," Duterte said in his message Tuesday.

The President also said change can only be achieved if Filipinos work together to implement reforms to remedy what he calls "many social ills."

"Let us take this opportunity to reflect on his sacrifice as we honor the courage and patriotism that Ninoy demonstrated during his struggle," he said.
