TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – The newly elected officials of the Provincial Interfaith Council spearheaded by Chairman Renato Caballero paid a courtesy visit to Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza Dimaporo on May 26, 2022, at the Governor’s Conference Room.
The council, composed of various religious leaders in the province, personally congratulated Governor Dimaporo on her triumph in the recently concluded election. The meeting also paved the way for the council to present their accomplishments and discuss future vital programs and projects to help enliven the spirit of the people during this time of recovery.
Substantially, through their “ Igsoon ko, Tulubagon ko” program, the council was able to help over 2000 families who were greatly affected by the Typhoon Odette at Siargao. They were also able to provide a single storey small house or ‘payag’ in certain communities such as in Pange, Baroy.
“We are also planning to extend assistance to others in dire need of help,” Chairman Caballero said.
Governor Dimaporo expressed her heartfelt thanks for the support and proactiveness shown by the group. As a mother and as the Chief Executive, Governor Dimaporo also genuinely appeals for the help of various religious sector leaders in promoting a holistic development among the people, mainly concerned with their attitude, intellect, and spiritual aspect.
“In this last term of mine, Agriculture will be one of my priorities. And as I can see now, many of us today are no longer planting crops, and even many of our young people have no interest in agriculture. So aside from giving them assistance, let us also try to encourage them. To cultivate our lands and be more productive ”.Governor Dimaporo said.
The meeting got intimate and emotional as everyone conveyed their whereabouts and planned what else should be done to strengthen and sustain each other’s relationship for the development of the province.
Among those who attended the meeting were Board Member Marivic Ramos, Vice Chairman Reynante Yango, Secretary Lancelot Prades, and other Board of Directors. PIO-LDN
