For people, he mentioned the programs of the province that are innovative and participatory. The success of the Bayanihan Para saKalusugan – KusinangKalinga (BPsK – KnK) program had inspired the province to bring the BPsK-KnK into a new level. The PLGU plans to conduct a universal feeding, wherein elementary pupils, regardless of their nutritional status will be fed for 120 days during lunchtime in five pilot areas in the province, namely; Upper Ulip ES in Pantukan, Anagase ES in Monkayo, Lono-Lono ES in Mawab, LS Sarmiento ES in Laak and Libuak ES in Maco. The activity is set on October, this year.

The province peace agenda covers two important pursuits, the reduction of crime and curbing agency. The PLGU continue to strengthen the anti-drug abuse councils of every LGU and actively worked for the social and economic reforms in the geographically isolated and disadvantaged communities.

The governor ended his SOPA giving thanks and acknowledging the people behind the province’s achievements and encouraging his fellow public servant, particularly the Sangguniang Panlalawigan members to continuewhat they have started.

“Victories should not stop. It should continue. I intend to keep the bayanihan spirit alive to witness more victories. I intend to keep the vision of our province to see more triumphs. I intend to connect and reach out to more people. I intend to keep the unity. I intend to bring more peace, deliver more progress and change more lives. So that by the time that we rename our province’s name to Davao de Oro by next year, we will be stronger than before,” he said. (Sheldane Mahinay// ID Comval)
