TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The city government of Tabuk (CLGU), through the Community Affairs Office (CAO), continued its partnership with Tabuk City Police Station (TCPS) during the three-day Moral Recovery Program (MRP) held in Barangay Cabaruan today, July 6, 2021.
Police Senior Master Sergeant Alvius Cordero, Community Affairs Officer Heriberto Barila, and former Councilor and now Administrative Officer Raul Albert explained the program’s theme: “Making a Difference in the New Normal.”
According to PSMS Cordero, the CLGU, TCPS, and the religious sector seek to make a difference despite the pandemic. This is through education campaigns like Barangay Ani-Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) Seminar and Youth Empowerment and Drug Symposium (YEDS).
“Daytoy [MRP] program during a pandemic is in partnership with the city & barangay officials, PNP and religious sector because the government believes that the change ket magna ti adipen ti Apo [Diyos].” Cordero Said.
Also, Cordero mentioned his conversation with Mayor Darwin Estrañero. The latter reminded him that the gathering to conduct information drive to reduce drugs and criminality programs is essential, but MRP organizers should still follow minimum health protocols.
“Kinatungtung nak mismo ni Mayor. Kunana go on with the drug program ta essential met dayta lakitdi i-follow yo itti health protocols,” Cordero added.
Mr. Albert, who represented Mayor Estrañero, recognized the support of the CLGU’s current administration by initiating government-funded programs related to educational campaigns and upliftment of people’s moral values. He encouraged the attendees to cooperate and encourage others, especially the youth, to join.
“Dawaten mi koma nga maki-cooperate kayo inggana malpas daytoy nga program. I-awis tayo digiyay dadduma ta ti [moral] recovery program ket haan lang para lalakay kin babaket nga adda asawa na, para met lang daytoy ti kabataan.
