COMMENTARY: GOVERNOR, COPS HARASS PEACE RALLY VS. NORDECO TAKEOVER BY DAVAO LIGHT

Nakugang ug nakuyawan si Gob. Edwin sa gipahitabong “Peace Rally” nga gipasiugdahan sa mga miembro-konsumante-tag iya sa NORDECO INC

Unang lakang nga gibuhat sa gobernador nga “makadato” mao ang kalit nga pagdeklara og “Alert Level 3” sa tibuuk probinsya bisperas sa adlaw nga mahitabo ang maong rally.Ikaduha: sayo sa kabuntagon gipabutangan niya og mga checkpoint ang palibot sa Queen of Apostles College Seminary aron pagsulay nga madiskurahe ang mga MCO’s nga mosalmot sa rally gani nagpadala pa kinig mga pulis ubos sa mando sa provincial director og nakighinabe sa usa sa mga pari sa seminaryo nga badlungon ang mga nanambong ug pasidan-an nga ipatuman ang 30% capacity. (unsay labot sa pari nga dili man kini maoy nagpasiugda?) READ MORE

Mahibulong nalang ka nganong ingun ani kadasig si gobernador nga babagan ang lakang sa mga miembro-konsumante ug tag-iya? Dunay “intimadation” nga nahitabo tungod kay ang pulis nga nagpatuman og checkpoint naka- full battle gear.Kahinumdum ko kaniadto, nakita nako sa fb post nga kining maong gobernador naghilak hilak og mipadayag nga siya mopabor sa mga kabus ug hinikawan kay gikan kuno siya sa kabus nga pamilya. Apan ngano man karon nga mas gipasulabe pa niya ang interes ni Aboitiz?

Nipasibaw pa siya nga kinihanglan ilisan ang NORDECO kay taas kuno og singil sa “generation charge”! Kanus-a man nakapanag-iya ang NORDECO og planta sa kuryente?Nagpataka nalang man nig yawit ning tawhana? Bisan unsa nalang ipamasangil sa NORDECO aron lang madaut ang imahe niini?Halata ra kaayo ka gob nga nausab naka! Nakalimot naka sa mga kabus ug yanong katawhan sa Davao del Norte nga maoy nanag-iya sa NORDECO!!!
