PMA topnotcher’s kin gleam, cite moral support to him

SAN PABLO, Isabela — The proud relatives of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) topnotcher have been joyful for the feat of their kinsman, Kristian Daeve Abiqui as among the best in the 63-member graduates this year.

Norma Abiqui, housekeeper-mother of the PMA topnotcher, said her son grew as an obedient boy.

Kristian ‘s sister, Kriselda Abiqui-Torio, said her brother had realized his long-awaited dream to be a PMA graduate.

Efren Abiqui, a laboratory technician of the Department of Public Works and Highways regional office in Tuguegarao City and native of Minanga Sur in this town, said he, his wife and their daughter have been giving all-out moral support to Kristian Dave during his “difficult years as a PMA cadet” until his graduation.

Abiqui said that being a PMA cadet is already a feat worth applauding for parents “so we are overjoyed.”

The 24-year-old PMA Gabay-Laya 2016 topnotcher and class president, who chose the Navy, has been an obedient, loving, kind and diligent son, his father added.

Prior to his PMA cadetship years, Kristian Dave finished three years in civil engineering. He just celebrated his 24th birthday on March 4.

Believing that others can do the same feat, he advised parents of PMA plebes to show their “moral support” to their children to help them prevent boredom, homesickness and difficulties of being in the military academy. PNA /
