Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, during his visit to Cavite, Mayor Isko Moreno said that the public must not forget the EDSA People Power Revolution that removed a president from office. He stressed that the sacrifices of the Filipinos then must not be forgotten.

Mayor Isko expressed that the said historical event showed that it is the people who give a government official the power and it is also the people who can take that power when the official is not using it in the right way. According to him, ousting can happen anytime if an official abuses the power given to him or her.

The Manila City Mayor also believes that the victims of crimes even before the People Power must be given justice. While agreeing that the present needs to be focused on in a forward movement, he stressed that the state must pursue the cases to give justice to the victims.

Mayor Isko Moreno is calling for the government to be prepared about the effects of the Ukraine-Russia tension on the prices of goods.
