Team P-Noy senatoriable Bam Aquino is pushing for measures to curb corruption practices and strengthen basic services to the people in the community.

Aquino aired his concern before a group of businessmen at a local hotel the other night.

“The only way to be able to push that is to put people who are not also corrupt. People who are clean to both individual and the system which will amplify anti-corruption,” Aquino said.

He said the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) is very serious about fighting corruption which targets individuals who are corrupt.

“Kasama po tayo sa kontra-korapsyon. That will lessen (or stop) the areas of corruption and create a better system,” Aquino stressed.

Aquino who is a multi-awarded youth leader and social entrepreneur with tested track record and services was awarded as one of the Ten Outstanding Young persons of the World (2012).

He said the present administration under President Benigno Aquino is doing great job for almost three years now with the growing economy, investment trade and stock market.

“These are pure indicators which the people do not expect. This is the type of economic growth that our countrymen need,” Aquino said.

The youthful senatoriable will lead the new generation of Aquino’s which will provide programs in the Senate for education, employment and livelihood for small businesses.

Aquino graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian at the Ateneo de Manila University with a Bachelor’s Degree of Management Engineering and became Student Council president in 1999.

At the age of 25, he became the youngest head of a government agency as chairperson of the National Youth Commission in 2003. —MLF
