Nograles, a lawyer by profession and son and also chief of staff of House Speaker Prospero Nograles, thanked all who continue to support him. The young Nograles celebrated his birthday with supporters, well-wishers and family members and relatives at simple bash at Felis Resort in the village of Matina Aplaya last week.

Majority of those who attended the party praised the lawyer and his father for their many humanitarian programs in Davao City’s 1st District. One villager gifted Nograles with a basket of fruits and promised to support his political plan.
