Bongbong Marcos said that no arrangements are made yet with the government. He does not know how to go over the hand-over process as far as the wealth for humanity is concerned at this point. This update is known during their family get-together in Ilocos Norte for the Centennial celebration of their patriarch, the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos.

Communications Secretary Martin Andanar also said that he is not aware if President gets an invite to the gathering. “The Marcos family are entitled to their own event. If they want to celebrate the birth anniversary of former President Marcos, it’s up to them, he added. We’re not connected to the Marcoses,” Andanar said.
The Marcos family celebrates the birth centennial of the late president Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani on his birthday, Sept. 11. Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos organizes the celebration. “It’s a family affair, plus friends and guests,” so to speak.
Ilocos Norte Holiday
Earlier, the President issued Proclamation 310. It declares the day as a non-working holiday in Ilocos Norte. This is in commemoration of Marcos’ 100th birth anniversary. Many anti-Marcos people are critical on this but since they found favor in the President’s eyes, they can’t do anything.
Right to Celebrate
Despite the criticisms received from detractors, the Marcoses express their sentiments that they have the right to celebrate the birth anniversary of their kin. This is everybody’s right. Lucky are those who are invited. The rest shall not sour-grape. Marcos loyalists are hopeful that in the future, it will be a nationwide holiday.
