LAOAG CITY, Ilocos Norte  — Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. welcomed the pronouncement of incoming President Rodrigo R. Duterte that he will allow the burial of the late former president  Ferdinand E. Marcos  at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani in Taguig City.
Earlier, Duterte said that the late President Marcos,a former soldier,  deserved to be buried at the LNMB.
“I will allow Marcos’ burial in Libingan Ng MgaBayani, not because he was a hero but because he was a Filipino soldier,” Duterte said in a previous interview.
“We are deeply grateful to the statement of our incoming President Rodrigo Duterte favoring the burial of the late President Ferdinand Marcos at the LibinganngmgaBayani. It has always been our family’s position that it is our father’s right under the law to be buried there being a soldier and a former President of this country,” Marcos said.
“Our campaign has always been towards achieving unity to move the country forward. And it is this kind of pronouncement that we hope could end the decades of divisiveness that have been imposed upon us by our leaders, added Marcos.
Duterte claimed that denying Marcos a place at the LNMB has created division in the country.
“Iyang issue ni Marcos diyansaLibingan Ng MgaBayani has long created a division amongst our people. Almost all of the Ilokanos, naghihinakit talaga.Lahat. Halos lahat, mgaIlokano, galit kung bakit ganoon ang ginawa sa kanya (The issue of Marcos’ burial at the LibinganngmgaBayani has divided this country for a long time. The Ilocanos feel slighted and hurting because of manner the issue of the late former president’s burial was treated),” Duterte pointed out.

The late former president’s well-preserved remains in a glass-encased coffin lie in state at the Marcos  Musuem and Mausoleum in Batac, Ilocos Norte.
