[English] Benigno S. Aquino III, Sixth State of the Nation Address, July 27, 2015

More than five years have passed since we put a stop to the culture of “wang-wang,” not only in our streets, but in society at large; since we formally took an oath to fight corruption to eradicate poverty; and since the Filipino people, our bosses, learned how to hope once more. My bosses, this is the story of our journey along the Straight Path.


Benigno S. Aquino III, Sixth State of the Nation Address, July 27, 2015

Ito ang aking ikaanim na SONA. Muli akong humaharap sa Kongreso at sa sambayanan upang iulat ang lagay ng ating bansa. Mahigit limang taon na ang lumilipas mula nang itinigil natin ang wang-wang, hindi lang sa kalsada, kundi sa buong lipunan; mula nang pormal tayong nanumpang labanan ang katiwalian upang masugpo ang kahirapan; at mula nang natuto muling mangarap ang Pilipino. Mga Boss, ito ang kuwento ng ating paglalakbay sa Daang Matuwid. – Pres. Benigno S. Aquino III, Sixth State of the Nation Address, July 27, 2015
