Baguio City - Speaking before thousands of Baguioans at the newly refurbished Baguio Athletic Bowl on Thursday (February 1), presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said he is a 'proud Cordilleran' and revealed the near completion of his first residential house somewhere in Baguio, according to Philippine News Agency. 

The 23rd year celebration of Baguio's Panagbenga Festival formally opened Thursday morning with a parade that started from upper Session Road down to Magsaysay Avenue going to Harrison Road then to the Athletic Bowl. 

The Panagbenga Festival highlights the deep cultural roots and creativity of the people of Baguio and nearby provinces of Cordillera. 

Roque was the guest speaker during opening ceremony of the festival at the Baguio Athletic Bowl. He also held a 30-minute press briefing where he told the media that he will try to convince the president to be the guest speaker during Panagbenga's grand street dancing parade on February 24. 

"I will convince (President Rodrigo Duterte) to attend the highlights of the celebration. Talagang kukumbinsihin ko siya na umakyat." Roque said in  an statement before thousands of Panagbenga opening revelers. 

The city government of Baguio had sent an invitation to Malacanang inviting President Duterte to be the guest speaker during the program of the grand street dancing parade on the 24th February. 

Baguio residents are expecting Duterte to heed to the invitation. 

"Asahan niyo po na kukulitin ko siya, para makabalik ako ng Baguio. Sa ngayon wala pa sa schedule," Presidential Spokesperson Roque reiterated during the press briefing.
