President Benigno S. Aquino III called on the officials and employees of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to uphold the ideals of transparency and accountability in order to sustain the country’s revitalization efforts.
“The foundation of a functioning democracy is a bureaucracy empowered by the ideals of patriotism, service, excellence, and integrity. This, in turn, inspires in our citizenry a commitment to participate in national life,” the Chief Executive said in his message on Wednesday to the CSC on the occasion of the 112th Philippine Civil Service anniversary.
President Aquino lauded the men and women of the CSC as well as the country’s lingcod-bayani for their contributions in nation-building.
“We in government count on our associates in the Civil Service Commission to continue promoting dedication and responsiveness in our public institutions, guided by the sense of purpose that led to the creation of your organization at a nascent time of nation-building,” the President stressed.
President Aquino also congratulated the “lingcod-bayani,” especially the Outstanding Public Officials and Employees of 2012, for a job well done.
“May you further serve as an inspiration to our colleagues in government, and to the Filipino people, as we tread the straight and righteous path illuminated by the daylight of hope and renewal,” he said.
