More than 7,000 police of the Police Regional Office Cordillera will contribute P500 each from their salaries to help complete a foot bridge project in Poblacion, Sadanga, Mountain Province.
In the recent teleconference of the Cordillera Regional Law Enforcement Coordinating Council, PRO-Cor Director B/Gen. R’win Pagkalinawan said Sadanga Mayor Ganggangan is a good example of a local chief executive leading peace and order efforts to make his municipality a peaceful place to live in.
“As a sign of goodwill, we, the police here in the Cordillera, give Mayor Ganggangan our snappy salute and support him in our little way by contributing from our pockets for his worthwhile footbridge project that will benefit the locals of the municipality,” Pagkalinawan said.
The PRO-Cor can raise about P3.5 million for this cause.
Ganggangan is pursuing the completion of the unfinished 320-meter bridge at the Poblacion which would benefit farmers and residents.
The mayor expressed gratitude to the PRO-Cor for providing financial assistance to complete a long-delayed project.
“In behalf of the farmers and my constituents, I humbly thank all members of the police force in our region. We take this as true gesture of the Cordillera spirit of caring and sharing. We hope that we, the people of Sadanga, can contribute to the cause of peace and security of our region,” Ganggangan said.
A staunch fighter of insurgency, Ganggangan has called on other local chief executives in the region and other government officials to take a stand against the New People’s Army and the Cordillera Peoples Alliance (CPA), which he claims, is its front organization.
In Municipal Peace and Order Council Resolution 1, s. 2020, the CPA and other leftist groups have been declared persona non grata in Sadanga. – Joseph B. Zambrano
