He also cited the resignation the chief of National Historical Commission. The lawyer said that Diokno might resign because they were appointed by former President Benigno Aquino III and not by President Duterte.
“At ang resignations by members of the National Historical Commission are expected. Hindi sila inappoint ni PRRD. Inappoint sila ni PNoy kasi ang trabaho nila ay ipagpipilitan na hindi bayani si Marcos. Kaya nahiya lang sila sa nag-appoint sa kanila kasi hindi nila naconvince ang taga Ilocos eh.” Said by Rivera in his post in social media.
Rivera said that many Filipino already knew that Marcos is not a hero and he did not want to join the rally led by unreliable leaders.
