June 19, Pigcarangan, Tubod – Governor Imelda Quibranza-Dimaporo starts her weekly message by greeting all Dad Happy Father’s Day. The Province of Lanao del Norte will continue to celebrate the 58th Araw ng Lanao even though Martial Law is still active in Mindanao. All activities will be done in the mornings from June 28 to July 4, 2017 inside the Mindanao Civic Center Sports Complex.
“Though our celebration has limitations but we have to show that we are indeed okay here. The life that we have here is very normal”, said Governor Dimaporo. The implementation of 8:00 pm curfew is in fact reasonable. In Lanao del Norte parents have agreed to the curfew hours implemented by the Philippine National Police and the Local Government of the Province. Children are compelled by the parents to be inside their houses before the curfew hour.
Governor Imelda Quibranza-Dimaporo also informed the employees of the Province that the normal work timing is back that starts from 8:00 am to 5:00pm confirming the Memorandum released on June 16, 2017. Last May 29, 2017, Governor Dimaporo released Memorandum Order declaring the work timing of all Provincial employees will be from 7:30am to 3:30pm to be effectively implemented on the following day (May 30, 2017) due to the reason that employees commuting in the afternoon from the Province to Iligan are spending too much time in the traffic caused by the military checkpoints along the highways particularly in NSC area in Iligan.
The lifting of the travel order was also discussed by the Governor. Provincial employees can now attend workshops or any meetings in Cagayan de Oro, Davao City or to any other places when it is deemed necessary.
Governor Imelda Quibranza-Dimaporo told the employees not to believe on text messages’ containing false information for this can create panic among individuals. And, not to forward bogus text messages not coming from the AFP, PNP or from any Government Agencies.
“Inform the PNP or local officials of your area when you see someone that is new in your place. Always be careful and vigilant for some of these suspects have already mixed with the civilians, how about those sympathizers whose faces are not included in the tarpaulins, be a concern citizen”, said Governor Dimaporo.
