THE DURIAN POST: QUO VADIZ GONZAGA?

Gonzaga debacle already painted in the bad fortune wall

For breaking a unity pact for local political leaders and parties to field and support a common slate for the sake of political peace; and failing to reign in his itch to become governor in 2022, Davao de Oro Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga is reaping whirlwinds that could end his political career when the dust of next year’s election settles down.

Six months away from the May election, the reelectonist 2nd District congressman is ranged against former political allies, the who-is-who in the Davao de Oro politics: Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy, his father Provincial Board senior member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, former governor Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora, Vice Governor and former 1st District Rep. Maricar Zamora and majority of municipal mayors, councilmen amd barangay captains.
At the moment, Gonzaga’s thin bench consists of himself (he has filed for reelection as 2nd District congressman but with his camp hinting he would switch at the last minute to running for governor to challenge Gov. Uy as subsitute candidate — allowed by Comelec up to November 15); his wife Dorothy (reportedly also being prepped up as substite candidate for Rep. Gonzaga in the Congress or governor’s race; former Mt. Diwata (Diwalwal) barangay captain Franco Tito (who has filed his Certificate of Candidacy (CoC) for governor who could be substituted by either Rep. Gonzaga or wife Dorothy); and a bunch of hurriedly organized mayoral candidates to be pitted against the common candidate.

CHIONGKEE UY slams ex-Speaker Alvarez for attacking President Duterte

Lies and distortion

COMPOSTELA VALLEY -BULAWAN FESTIVAL

Former Davao de Oro Governor and now Senior Board Member Arturo Uy denounced what he described as blatant lies and distortion of what the government has done and been doing to address the complex problems brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and how the Duterte administration handled the issues surrounding the West Philippine Sea.   

Pinapalabas ni Alvarez na wala ng ginawang mabuti ang pamahalaang Duterte upang matulungan at maibsan ang kahirapan ng mga mamamayan  sa gitna ng problemang dulot ng pademya.  Pinapalabas din niya na parang kasalanan ng gobyerno ang mawalan ng trabaho at mga OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) na yon nama’y dahil  maraming negosyo na nagsara dahil sila rin ay naapektuhan ng pandemya (Alvarez makes it appear that the administration of Duterte is not doing anything to help and alleviate the difficulties of the people in the midst of the pandemic. He also put the blame on the government for why the OFWs lost their jobs when the real cause is that businesses [in other countries] closed because of the pandemic),” Uy said. 

He added that through the initiative of President Duterte, Davao del Norte province, towns and cities were recipients of more of less PHP800-million under Bayanihan 1 and 2 and other augmentation funds to help those who lost their livelihood due to the pandemic.  

The President, he said, saw to it that the province gets a substantial budget for infrastructures.

Uy, who is an incumbent pillar of HnP, denounced the group for putting the blame on Duterte for tension at the West Philippine Sea and loss of Scarborough shoal when the truth is the islands at WPS had been a subject of the multi-lateral claim and it was the administration of ex-Pres. Benigno Aquino abandoned the Scarborough.  

He said he is in accord with the diplomatic strategies of Duterte as Filipino fishermen can still fish in the traditional fishing ground and China opening their markets for Philippine products.  

China, he added, is now the biggest buyer of Philippine Cavendish bananas thus saving thousands of jobs especially the agricultural workers in Davao del Norte.   

He said because of Duterte, China extends cheap loans to the Philippines to finance infrastructure projects including the Samal bridge, three bridges that span Pasig River that cost billions of pesos are also donations from China, not to mention the unquantifiable assistance the country extended to help medical front-liners.  

Uy, who had been tasked by HnP to strengthen the regional party, hit innuendos in the manifesto stating that the next President for 2022 is a leader who is “not a pretender”, “with brains”, with “balls” and political will, and can lead. 

He said the party will continue to support the leadership of President Duterte who steadfastly navigate the country against all the challenges of the time, adding that the region will always be behind HnP chairperson, Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte.

Duterte, he added, is a genuine leader imbued with courage and intellect.

“And yes she has the political will and guts to engage even a Speaker of the House if needed,” he said, referring to the Mayor who topped the recent Pulse Asia survey among the probable Presidential candidates in the 2022 elections. (Jun Ledesma/PNA)

Compostela Vallley ‘youth power’ given more strength

By Gilbert M. Cabahug

Compostela Valley has created a special body that would map out strategies and programs for youth welfare, said Provincial Boaed member Tyron Uy.

p13 (2)Uy said the Provincial Local Youth Council (PLYC), created by  Governor Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy through Executive Order (EO) 025-2013, would pursue programs for the youth left in the void by the defunct Sangguniang Kabataan (SK).

Uy, son of the governor and youngest member of the Provincial Board, said the main thrust of the PLYC is to promote youth welfare and to train the young on good governance.

The SK has been placed in limbo when the government mothballed the SK elections in 2013, leaving the youth sector without representation in local legislative bodies.

 With the PLYC, the provincial government will continue to be active in the promotion of youth welfare and their participation in governance and social and economic development, said Uy, whose youth promotion drive is anchored on his project dubbed YES (Youth, Education, and Sports Advocacy).

Uy said the PLYC will link up with all youth groups in the province and carry the voice of the youth to the Provincial Board through recommendations that would promote the general welfare of the youth sector. 

The members of the PLYC are the presidents of the CVSP Provincial Scholars, IP Youth Federation, PAG-ASA Youth Association, Youth for Peace Movement Federation, Diocesan Youth Apostolate Federation, Young Farmers (4H Club) Federation, Student Gov’t Councils in the Tertiary Level, Supreme Student Government (SSG) in Secondary and Technical Vocational Education.

Provincial Youth Coordinator Preciosa Toledo said officers and members of the PLYC took office during an Organizational Meeting held on July 11.

They are John Lerry A. Misa  (CVSP), Chairperson;  Vice Chair Imee Kassandra Cacho-SSG; Secretary Pablito Quidato Jr.-IP; Members: Jahar Sequina-Muslim, Ramel Luzon, Noemi Minguito-4H, Shadrach Lindong-SSC, Shelou Broñola-DYA, and Esmeraldo Hadcan– III (PYAP).  (gilbert m. cabahug, ids-comval)

Sec. Teodoro in ComVal infra project launch

Defense chief in ComVal grassroots infra launch

By ROGER M. BALANZA

Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr. yesterday presided over launch of a package of infrastructure projects under the Kalayaan Barangay Program (KBP) in Compostela Valley, as the government aims to bring down to the grassroots projects for hastened countryside development.

“The KBP is an opportunity to overcome political, economic and social barriers to peace and progress. It aims to address some of the common root causes of insurgency like poverty and illiteracy, ” said Governor Arturo “Choingkee” Uy during his speech at the launching held at the Capitol in Nabunturan town.

“Military alone cannot solve our problems in social stability and insurgency…this is a universal problem. When government and the people work together, it can be a powerful force to pave the way for the attainment of peace and security,” said Uy as he thanked President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Teodoro for the package of infrastructure projects.

Compostela Valley would get 38 projects in the KBP program, to be implemented by the Army 52nd Engineering Brigade.

In his speech, Teodoro said the development projects are tied to government peace efforts with insurgents addressing social problems, a common concern of the government and Philippine rebels. Our purpose is to push DDR as espoused by President Arroyo, he told the gathering. DDR means Disarmament, Development and Reintegration, a new tack pursued by the government as it lures the communist New People’s Army and the secessionist Moro Islamic Liberation Front to the negotiation talk.

Among the KBP projects to be in ComVal are Kalayaan access roads, school buildings, water systems, health facilities and electrification.

The projects are to be implemented this year in the municipalities of Pantukan (Brgy. Kingking, Las Arenas), Mabini (Brgy. Libudon), Monkayo (Salvacion), Laak (Kapatagan), MAco (Lapu-lapu, Masara, Mainit, Manipongol, Dumlan, New Visayas, Libay-libay, Malamodao, Panoraon)

Yesterday’s launching was attended by Lt. Gen. Jaime Buenafe-Nat’l Development Support Command, Lt. Gen. Raymundo Ferrer-Eastmincom, Maj. Gen. Reynaldo Mapagu-10th ID, Col. Romeo Calizo, 100st IB, and representatives from NEDA, MEDCO, GEM.
