His dream of federalism has died with him

HE is a legal luminary, no doubt. But more than that ,  former Senate President Nene Pimentel was a renowned vanguard of the federalism movement.

Sadly, his  dream of seeing the country becoming a federal state has not come in his lifetime.

His dream of federalism has died with him.

In fact, he has written a book on federalism, citing among others, the shift would  result to a better life for all Filipinos enjoying peace and security, responsive labor, quality education and much improved social services.

Pimentel’s last act as a public servant was signing the ConCom draft Bayani­han Federalism Constitution on July 3, 2018.

Sans his fragile state of health, Nene Pimentel trailblazed the proposal nom-stop  for a federal system to develop the  countryside.

Knwon  as the "Father of the Local Government Code" , Pimentel had been  pushing  for federalism as a form of government.in various  fora — championing the autonomy of local governments and the power of the people.

His dream of federalism has died with him, yet he left a lasting legacy for  all of us to carry on — onward to federalism! (ruffy44_ph2000@yahoo.com)
