The PNP Chief lauds the effort of the Tubod MPS men and women for having and maintaining a clean and orderly station.
“Nakita ko sa loob, sa labas, sa taas, at sa baba napaka-linis. You must continue this state of determination, for cleanliness breeds discipline. We must follow these three principles: cleanliness in the office, cleanliness in the ranks, and cleanliness in the community,” Gen Eleazar said.
After his visit at Tubod MPS, Gen Eleazar met with 2nd District Representative Congressman Abdullah ‘Bobby’ Dimakuta Dimaporo at Riana’s, MCC to talk about peace and development in the province through lunch.
Cong Abdullah expressed his appreciation to the PNP Chief Eleazar and the rest of the Police Force for their efforts in maintaining peace and order in the province. He hoped that the General enjoyed his stay in the province even for a short time.
“We are honored to be in the presence of the PNP Chief, as one of the leaders of our beloved province, I am proud to say that because of the help of our partners like the PNP and AFP, we are gearing towards our dream of lasting peace and development,” Cong Abdullah said.
After his meeting with Cong Abdullah, the PNP Chief then held a Command Visit at the Lanao Del Norte Police Provincial Office (PPO) in Camp Major Eduardo J Gallejo, Pigcaranan, Tubod. Among the highlights of the event is the conferment of awards to deserving PNP personnel of the Lanao del Norte PPO, and the ceremonial turnover of ballistic eyewear and bulletproof vests.
“This is the second day of my visit in Police Regional Office X. Region X is the Last among the 17 Regions that I visit before I bow out as your Chief PNP and a member of the Police Force because, in three weeks time, I will be retiring,” Gen Eleazar said.
“If my presence here is giving you inspiration, the feeling is mutual. My presence here, with you around, gives me continued strength for commitment to dash to the finish line in the service to our country,” Gen Eleazar added.
Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo, despite not being able to meet the General face to face, is thankful to the Chief of Police and the PNP as a whole for without them, attaining lasting peace and development would not be possible here in the province of Lanao del Norte, ‘The Land of Beauty and Bounty’.
