The ceremony started with the placing of a floral offering on the monument to Benito Juárez  in Palacio Nacional, after which president held a guard of honor alongside Interior Secretary Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, Foreign Relations Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu Salinas, and Health Secretary José Narro Robles.

Immediately afterwards, accompanied by the President of the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Deputies, Jesús Zambrano Grijalva, Peña Nieto moved to the central courtyard of Palacio Nacional, where the official act was carried out before secretaries of state, representatives from the legislative and judicial powers, officials and guests.

Health Secretary José Narro Robles was in charge of giving the speech in honor of Benito Juárez, during which he lauded the work of one of the builders of contemporary Mexico and its sovereignty

In the name of the federal government, the official called for working in favor of Mexico and join efforts to combat the true enemies of society and not those who think differently.

Mexico, a nation with history and culture, with resources and potential, urgently needs to stop hesitating when it comes to the future, for it will not be immobility nor a gaze fixed on the past that will be the formulas that will guide us to a better place in the future.”
-José Narro Robles. Health Secretary.

As sole speaker of the ceremony, he assured that those who do not want to recognize the strides being made are failing. He recognized that there exist lags but stressed that during the current administration various structural reforms have been approved  that will bring development to the country.

“We have the historical commitment to make the most of the reforms to cure the wrongs of poverty, sickness, ignorance, the inequality that hurts us so and the injustice, these are the true enemies and not those who think differently to us.”

He criticized those who seek to divide nations by building walls, as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump does.

Narro Robles stated that difficulties will be overcome if the principals and values of the republic are followed. He asked for Benito Juárez’s legacy to be preserved and to leave behind division among Mexicans, concluding with hurrahs in his honor.
