Naniniwala kaming nakapagbigay kami ng serbisyong makabuluhan at mahalaga sa mga Pilipino. Gayunpaman, nagpapasalamat kami sa Committee para sa pagkakataong maipahayag ang aming panig sa mga isyung laban sa amin,” he said.
“Mananatili kaming nakatuon sa serbisyong publiko at umaasang makakahanap ng ibang paraan para tuparin ang aming misyon. Kasama ang aming mga empleyado, karamay niyo kami sa inyong kalungkutan. Inaasahan namin ang araw na tayo ay magkakasamang muli. Mga kapamilya, maraming salamat na patuloy kayong nagtiwala, sumuporta, nagdasal at lumaban kasama namin. Kapit lang. muling magliliwanag ang kwento ng bawat Pilipino,” he also said.
