Fort Bonifacio, even during the Spanish Era, is part of Taguig. During the commonwealth, it was converted to a Military base, which was named Fort Mckinley. It was only during the late Pres. Marcos administration when Fort Mckinley was named Fort Bonifacio and then transferred to Makati. To the dismay of those who are saying that Fort Bonifacio was sold to Taguig during Ramos administration, it was not. Taguig got the jurisdiction over Fort Bonifacio after winning the case against Makati in 1993. Makati then appealed to the court, but the Pasig RTC still sided with Taguig last 2011, saying that Fort Bonifacio including the MBO Brgy’s are part of Taguig. Makati then asked the CA to review the case, and so the decision was reverted in favor of Makati. Now, historically – it is Taguig. Ibigay kay Juan ang para kay Juan, at kay Pedro ang para kay Pedro. Malawak ang kasaysayan ng Taguig, mas malawak sa kasaysayan ng Makati dahil hamak na mas naunang umusbong ang sibilisasyon ng Tagiik (Taguig) partikular sa gilid ng ilog hanggang sa kapatagan ng Fort Bonifacio. Better read some books with the history of Taguig and Pasig, dahil itong dalawang lugar na ito ang sumunod na umusbong sa Maynila (Tondo) bago pa man ang panahon ng Kastila. And to add, the main reason why the camp is named Fort Bonifacio is to give honor to the late Andres Bonifacio who is a native of Taguig. His father (Santiago Bonifacio) is also from Taguig. The Napindan Parola in Napindan Taguig played an important role for the establishment of Katipunan, and the Tree infront of St. Anne Church in Sta. Ana Taguig used to be the playground of the young Andres Bonifacio.
“Taguig worked hard for BGC’s success through a combination of low tax rates and ease in doing business offered by the local government of Taguig City has made Fort Bonifacio, particularly the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), the successful financial district it is today.” –Mayor Lani Cayetano, Taguig City
