Incoming Senator Emmanuel D. Pacquiao stressed yesterday the importance of religion in his role as a lawmaker and in dealing with his fellowman, particularly his constituents.
“Being religious is important because it is impossible for a leader to become successful in (leading) the nation without the guidance of the Lord,’’ Pacquiao, a boxing icon, said.
In a brief talk with Senate reporters when he visited the Senate press office the other day, Pacquiao would encourage his fellow senators to be religious.
“Tsaka importante din yan dahil pagka…maging honest ka, matakot kang magnakaw. Totoo naman yan,’’ he said.
