The Department of the Interior and Local Government in Region 10 invites Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo for the regional introduction of #DisiplinaMuna Advocacy Campaign together with other Provincial Governors, Mayors of Cities and Municipalities, Barangay Captains, Civil Society Organizations, and National Government Agencies including Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines.

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año personally leads the launching of #DisiplinaMuna in Region 10 for he sees how active and supportive the Local Chief Executives and the people in Northern Mindanao to the programs of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte for the welfare development in the pursuit of a lasting and inclusive peace.

Secretary Año called on all Local Chief Executives, Civil Society Organizations, National Government Agencies, and the Citizenry to continuously work hand-in-hand against the insurgency perpetuated by the Communist Party of the Philippines New People Army National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF), which gravely affects the country’s development through their abusive and threatening acts towards the innocent and peace-loving civilians.

“The CPP NPA NDF are group of bandits disguising themselves as an ideology driven organization. It has been going-on for 51 years,” said the DILG Secretary, and added, the devastation caused by the communist group to the country and to the people tells that it is time to end the misery. Despite the efforts of the government to reconcile through ceasefire and peace talks, instead the group use the agreement to conduct series of ambush against the AFP and PNP troops. Which give enough reason to President Duterte to cancel the peace and reconciliation effort, and signed Executive Order 70, Ending Local Communist Armed Conflict in the country.

And in order for the country to move forward and attain the common aspirations, DILG initiated the national advocacy campaign to rebuild the culture of discipline among Filipinos that would nurture common responsibility and participation in attaining sustainable development and maintenance of peace and order.

#DisiplinaMuna advocacy campaign was created to encourage and remind Filipinos that change must start from oneself and not only rely on the efforts of the government.

Secretary Año led the Commitment Signing followed by the Local Chief Executives, representatives of the Civil Society Organizations, Officers of the AFP and PNP, and other National Government Agencies, and the media highlighted the activity.

Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo, the two Congressional District Offices of 1st District Representative, Congressman Mohamad Khalid Quibranza Dimaporo and 2nd District Representative, Congressman Abdullah ‘Bobby’ Dimakuta Dimaporo and the Municipal Mayors strongly support the efforts of the Department of the Interior and Local Government in achieving sustainable peace and development for the country and for the peace-loving people of Lanao del Norte, “The Land of Beauty and Bounty.”
