Aquino lauds holding of ARMM local executives’ convention

PDFPrintE-mail

DAVAO CITY - President Benigno S. Aquino III lauded the holding of the ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) LGU (local government unit) Convention on Local Governance here, saying it showed the seriousness of the region’s local executives to join efforts to weed out corruption, corruptors, graft and grafters from government.

In his speech keynoting the event at the Waterfront Davao Insular Hotel on Wednesday, the President said the former image of ARMM as a lawless and frightening place was slowly but surely being changed with the help of the LGUs.

“Ang mabuting pamamahala ay pundasyon ng matibay na samahan at ugnayan, respeto, integridad, at pagpapahalaga sa tao-sa-taong usapan --- ito ang mga prinsipyong itinataguyod upang makamit ang mithiing magkaroon ng tapat at epektibong pamumuno sa ARMM,” the President said.
“Sagisag nga po ang pagbubuklod natin ngayon upang paigtingin pa ang ating mabuting pamamahala tungo sa makabuluhan at malawakang pagbabago sa rehiyon,” he added.

Among the reforms his administration has implemented, with the help of the lawmakers, LGUs and the people of ARMM themselves, is synchronizing the holding of the ARMM elections with that of its national counterparts and the cleansing of the ARMM voter’s list.

“Iba na po ang istorya ngayon kung kailan tinutugunan na natin ang mga problema. Ang una nating hakbang: pakiusapan ang Kongreso na ipagpaliban ang eleksyon sa rehiyon at isabay ito sa lokal at pambansang halalan. Gusto nating mapadama sa kanila, sa mabilisan at epektibong paraan, ang kahulugan ng mabuting pamamahala,” the President said.

“Lilinisin na po natin ang voters list upang ibalik ang halaga ng inyong boto. Bukod pa rito, nagpapatayo na po tayo ng totoong paaralan at tinutuldukan na natin ang bakbakan na bumibiktima pati sa mga inosenteng sibilyan sa pamamagitan ng mapayapang usapan sa MILF. Nagpapasalamat po tayo sa buong ARMM sa pangunguna ni OIC Governor Mujiv Hataman; di po magiging posible ang mga tagumpay na ito kung wala ang inyong pakikiisa sa mabuting pamamahala,” he added.

He told the members of the ARMM local government that these reforms were a significant opportunity to impress upon the people that though good governance, the benefits of a better life for all was possible.

“Binigyan po tayo ng pagkakataon upang patunayan sa mga taga-ARMM na ang mabuting pamamahala ay nagbubunsod ng tunay na pag-ginhawa,” the President said.

“Kaya naman huwag po nating sayangin ang magandang pagkakataong ito. Huwag nating ipagpabukas pa ang kaya nating isakatuparan ngayon para sa lalo pa nating pag-usad,” he added.
