In a statement made by his sister Pinky Aquino-Abellada on Thursday afternoon at Heritage Park, he died peacefully in his sleep and was pronounced dead at 6:30 a.m. due to renal disease secondary to diabetes.

One may note that he has dealt with health issues since 2019. He had also been undergoing dialysis for five months and had undergone a heart procedure.

Noynoy’s allies and loved ones also arrived at the hospital on the day of his passing to pay their respects.

Pnoy’s cousin, Former Senator Bam Aquino, took to Instagram and stated, “Nadurog ang puso ko sa paglisan ni PNoy sa atin. Sa mga susunod na oras, maraming sasabihin tungkol sa kanya – iba totoo, iba hindi. Pero ito ang masasabi ko – lahat ibinigay niya para sa Pilipino. Wala siyang itinira.”

Korina Sanchez expressed her grief by uploading an image on Noynoy and wrote, “Sad day. Gone too soon. Many presidents have come and gone. But PNOY I knew. Thank you for your friendship. Most of all, gratitude for service to our country. Godspeed. Bon voyage. Be happy in eternity with your parents, your fellow Filipino heroes.”

Even Senator Bong Go issued a statement on Pnoy’s passing and said, “I mourn the untimely passing today of former President Benigno “Noynoy’ Aquino III. I sincerely and deeply condole with his family and friends.”

The lawmaker added, “ I join a grateful nation in prayers for the eternal repose of his soul, and for the strength of his family in grief. May the late President’s siblings and relatives find comfort in the thought that we are thankful to him, for having dedicated his life in the service of the country and our people.” 

Noynoy was the only son of the late president Corazon Aquino and Senator Benigno Aquino Jr, both hallowed for trying to restore democracy during the 20-year authoritarian rule of the late President Ferdinand Marcos.
