Barangay officials' cancelled trip to Dakak


Due to peace and order and security concern, Liga Ng Mga Barangay Federation cancelled the trip of Barangay chairmen to attend the First Regional Barangay Convention in Dakak, Dapitan City on invitation of Regional Liga ng mga Barangay President Marjorie Jalosjos.

Dapitan City is a Jalosjos country where you can see a lot of progress and development.

From all indications, Jalosjos is running for Mayor of Zamboanga City in 2013 after the term of Mayor Celso Lobregat.

Let us be reminded that after the storm, everything is very calm. This is also true that after an ambush or harassment along the highways of Sibugay, the situation returns to normal which is the best time to travel.

Why? Because the bad elements are on the run in the mountains who are hunted and pursued by government troops?

Another reason given for the cancellation of the trip of 98 Barangay chairmen of Zamboanga City to Dakak, Dapitan City to attend the convention from November 16 to November 18, 2011 is because of the attacks in Basilan and Sibugay provinces in October 2011.

But the Police Provincial Director of Sibugay province claimed that the route going to Dipolog and Dapitan cities is safe and secured. In fact, the delegation of Barangay officials from Isabela City travelled to Dakak, Dapitan City via Zamboanga City.

The admission of City Hall that the cancellation of the trip of Barangay chairmen to Dakak has no political motive is tantamount to making “Vulgar what is Obvious”.

Is it really true that Barangay Federation officials of Zamboanga City cancelled its trip to Dakak, Dapitan City for security reason? Or is it because some barangay officials want to jump ship? Let's watch.
