Bayani Flores Fernando[3] (born July 25, 1946) is a former Chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA). He announced his intention to run for President of the Philippines in the 2010 general elections, but after talks with Richard Gordon, he agreed to run instead as Vice-President under Gordon's newly established party, Bagumbayan. Their ticket was dubbed "the Transformers"; he lost in the polls, placing third.

Early life and career

Bayani Fernando was born in San Juan, Rizal (now part of the National Capital Region), and finished his secondary education at the Marikina School of Arts and Trades (renamed Marikina Institute of Science and Technology in 1979, now Marikina Science High School since 2001).[4] He finished college with a degree on Mechanical Engineering at the Mapúa Institute of Technology.[5]

Later on, he established BF Corporation, an umbrella company that includes BF Construction Company and BF Metal Works. His company became involved in the construction of structures for the Mall of Asia Arena, SM City Marikina, Robinsons Ermita and towering buildings in Makati City such as Rufino Tower.[6] It is likely he shared his metal fabrication expertise with the MMDA during his tenure.

Long after leaving MMDA, his construction company won a PPP bid that will build classrooms and school buildings for the Department of Education.[7]

Political life

Mayor of Marikina City

Fernando first ran for public office in 1992, becoming mayor of Marikina City. His administration as mayor transformed the former municipality into one of the best-managed cities and a paradigm of responsive and effective governance. His term saw the transformation of Marikina from a 4th class municipality to a model Philippine city accorded with 55 citations and distinctions. He was re-elected mayor twice, serving until 2001. He was succeeded by his wife, Ma. Lourdes C. Fernando.

Chairmanship

In 2002, he was appointed Chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, directing him to duplicate his transformation work in Marikina City, but for the entire Metro Manila.

As Chairman, Metropolitan Manila has been dramatically changing into a livable metropolis. With his exceptional administrative skills and leadership qualities that have now become the yardstick of performance, he continues to prove himself as an agent of positive change. This earned him the moniker “Mr. Governance”.

For his outstanding work, he was conferred the Doctor of Humanities, Honoris Causa, Ateneo de Cagayan, The Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) Award for Government Service, the H.R Reyes Academic Medallion of Honor, Central Colleges of the Philippines and Doctor of the Public Administration, Honoris Causa by the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.

He is most notable for introducing U-Turn slots, greatly increasing the amount of pedestrian overpasses at road intersections (called footbridges), pioneering broadcasting of the MMDA, sidewalk clearing operations, and revitalizing the assets and fleets of the government agency. Although some of his policies and structures were met with resistance and complaints, many of these can be still seen today. Subsequent MMDA chairmen continued many of BF's contribution, particularly the construction of footbridges.

Secretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways

Fernando briefly served as Secretary of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) from January 15, 2003 until April 15, 2003.[8]

Presidential campaign

On January 4, 2008, Fernando announced that he would be running for the presidency in the 2010 elections.[9] Fernando hinted that he had gathered the funds and logistics required for a nationwide campaign and was intent on running for the presidency with or without the support of his party, Lakas-CMD.[10] But on September 16, 2009, when Lakas-CMD chose Gilbert “Gibo” C. Teodoro to represent their party for the presidency, Fernando reiterated "he is keeping his options open and may possibly run as an independent candidate or bolt out of the party."[11]

After talks with Richard Gordon, he agreed to slide to Vice-President under Richard Gordon's party. But he lost to Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay and finished fourth.

After holding positions

Nothing was heard from Bayani Fernando after the elections; however, he made an appearance again with current MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, in the issue of informal settlers and the perennial flooding crisis, defending Tolentino in the flood control issues.

On July 25, 2012, a Telephone Interview with Bayani Fernando was made by Senator Richard Gordon in a TV5 Radio Program. Bayani is now busy with his construction and metal fabrication business at BF Corporation.
