Sinabi ng Human rights lawyer na si Atty. Chel Diokno sa isang tweet nitong Biyernes, Hunyo 24, na mahirap umano humanap ng isang pangulo na katulad ng yumao na si dating Pangulong Noynoy Aquino.
“It will be hard to find a President like Noynoy Aquino. He was dedicated to his work and devoted to the people,” saad ni Diokno.
“While no president is perfect, just as none of us are, he gave his best for our country, and showed us that public office is a public trust,” dagdag pa niya.
Inilarawan ni Diokno si Aquino bilang “gentleman, servant leader, at responsible president.”
“I miss his sense of humor, his sense of curiosity about the world, and the conversations we had that ranged far and wide and covered so many topics. He was a gentleman, a servant leader, and a responsible President,” aniya.
Matatandaan na noong Hunyo 24, 2021, pumanaw si PNoy sa edad na 61 dahil sa renal disease secondary to diabetes.
Ginunita ang kaniyang death anniversary ngayong araw sa Church of Gesu sa Ateneo de Manila University na dinaluhan ng kaniyang mga kamag-anak, dating mga kaklase, dating cabinet members, at mga kaibigan.
