Two days after election, Gov. Uy leads building of classrooms in mountain sitios

No election canvassing can prevent Compostela Valley’s millennial governor, Jayvee Tyron L. Uy from reaching Sitio Puting Bato, a mountain village in Barangay Ngan, Compostela, Compostela Valley.

Gov. Uy along with Reynante Solitario, the Schools Division Superintendent of the Department of Education-Compostela Valley, Mayor Lema Bolo of Compostela, Gawad Kalinga Provincial Coordinator Bong Carmilotes, key officers from Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police and troop of volunteers from local government units and the civil society braved through rough roads to build a one (1) unit of building with two classrooms for the children of the Sitio Puting Bato.  The village was the former site of the Salugpungan school before it was successfully penetrated by the local government.

A week before his visit in Sitio Puting Bato, Gov. Uy also visited Sitio Side 4 in Mangayon, Compostela, another far-flung sitio to lead the groundbreaking of a school that will also be built there.

The young governor emphasized that the building of classrooms in part of the effort of the provincial government to reach out to the farthest areas in the province. He also vowed to construct a solar drier in the area, seedlings, agricultural tools and implements. He also pledged to find possible funds for the concreting and rehabilitation of roads in the area, construction of a day-care center, potable water system and health center.  

The visit of Gov. Uy in the area is also part of his peacebuilding efforts especially in conflict-affected communities.

“For the longest time, the people here felt that they are left out because of government’s lack of presence here. I assured the community that those days are gone. Today is only the beginning. The provincial government will ensure that they will be provided the services they deserve. That is our commitment”, the young governor said. (ID covmal)
