Og-ogfo spirit highlights Bontoc’s 112th anniversary
by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – In a simple celebration of Bontoc’s 112th founding anniversary on Sept. 16, officials highlighted og-ogfo (bayanihan) as the world battles the Covid-19.

In a pandemic, difficult times bring out the best in the Ifontok said Mayor Franklin Odsey.

“We saw the innate generosity or panag-isakitisnanib-a – Neighbors helping neighbors. The community coming to aid our dutiful frontliners, and generously whatever they can to help. Anonymous donors sending help in cash or in-kind to people in need. So many people with generous hearts. Frontliners going beyond the call of duty. Citizens complying with health protocols. Heroes all,” the mayor said.

With this year’s theme “Empowered communities, resurging traditions: Towards a safer and healthier future,” Odsey acknowledged that the Covid-19 has changed the community’s traditional lifestyle. He however added that Bontoc’s culture and community spirit have empowered everyone to make the most of difficult times, enabling them to cope.

He added that generosity, care, industry, and kindness are resurging traditions that form part of being a good citizen.

Odsey assured that the Covid -19 will not be a hindrance in the implementation of the regular programs of the present administration and delivery of services to the people.

Mountain Province Rep. Maximo Dalog, Jr., who was the keynote speaker during the event, acknowledged the dedication and passion of frontline workers in the fight against Covid-19.

He also lauded the present administration for raising the bar of excellence in good governance. He mentioned that Bontoc, being an awardee of the Seal of Good Local Governance for three years in a row, a Hall of Famer Most Outstanding Accounting Office in the Philippines, and consistent awardee of the Seal of Child-Friendly Municipality are manifestations of good public service and exemplary leadership.

In the same event, the LGU recognized those who donated or extended assistance in one way or another, to help the municipality in its Covid-19 response.
