Bulacan holds localized SONA, focuses on federalism
Bulacan Acting Governor Daniel R. Fernando has underscored the importance of the government’s shift to federalism as this could help the province to progress.
“Naniniwala tayo sa mga adhikain ng ating Pangulo (Rodrigo Duterte), ito nga pong federalismo ay napakaganda lalo na sa ating lalawigan, at makatutulong upang mabigyan natin ng higit na tulong at suporta ang ating mga kababayan,” said Fernando during the provincial localized State of the Nation Address (SONA) Monday, July 23.
Duterte delivered his third SONA on July 23 at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City.
The provincial government of Bulacan in cooperation with the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte–National Executive Coordinating Committee (MRRD-NECC)-Bulacan organized a what they claim as a localized SONA and press conference held at the latter’s provincial headquarters at Guiguinto, Bulacan.
Fernando said that the local government has been seeking assistance from the President to further develop the province.
“Ang inihihingi natin ng suporta kay Pangulong Duterte, unang-una ay ‘yung balanced development dito sa Bulacan, at mayroon kaming inilatag sa ating national government pagdating sa kalusugan, at siyempre sa infrastructure lalo na yung adhikain na mailipat ang LEX (Bulacan Provincial Jail), o ‘yung ating jail sa DRT (Doña Remedios Trinidad),” he said.
Meanwhile, League of Mayors of the Philippines (LMP)-Bulacan President and Guiguinto Mayor Ambrosio “Boy” Cruz Jr. explained that Partido Federal ng Pilipinas is a national party under the MRRD-NECC.
“Ang Partido Federal ng Pilipinas ay accredited na sa Comelec (Commission on Elections). Ang hinihintay na lang ay ang validation to being an official national party, so iyon ang aming isinasagawa ngayon para makabuo kami sa bawat distrito, sa bawat bayan at sa bawat barangay, para makita kung gaano kalaganap itong partido na ito,” Cruz said.
