Marcos, who was accompanied by Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer and Bago City Mayor Nicholas Yulo, also led the distribution of nutribuns to Bagonhon children.
The nutribuns came from the proceeds of the movie “Maid in Malacañang” which is about the life story of the Marcoses during the Martial Law years and Edsa Revolution.
The senator also announced that the municipal mayors in the province’s Fourth District will also receive P5 million each under the budget of the Department of Agriculture (DA).

In her speech, she acknowledged that his brother, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. garnered the highest votes in Fourth District in the last presidential elections.
Marcos said her presence in the district yesterday is her way of giving thanks to the people there.
“Mula noon Hanggang ngayon, ang Fourth District ay Marcos pa rin,” she noted.*
