MISAMIS Oriental Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member President Elipe once again urged Vice Gov. Jose Mari Pelaez to sign all ordinances and resolutions that have been approved by the provincial legislative body that are sitting on his desk.
“Kini aron dili mabalda ang serbisyo sa katawhan sa matag munisipyo,” Elipe said in a March 18 press release, noting that most of the resolutions that are currently inside Pelaez’s office are for the benefit of the constituents in the various municipalities and cities of the province.
Elipe echoed his call after Pelaez filed a leave of absence in their regular session last Monday, a week after the two had a verbal tussle on the matter.
He questioned why the documents took this long to be signed by Pelaez, alleging that they were sitting on his desk as early as last year.
“Siya na mismo nag-angkon nga ayha ra siy amopirma kung kanus-a niya gustohon, dili ban a diktador,” Elipe asked.
In another development, Elipe vowed to uplift the economy of the farmers in the province if he would win as vice governor in the May 13 election and take the leadership of the SP by July.
Along this line, the running mate of reelectionist Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano welcomed the opening of the first tissue culture laboratory of Misamis Oriental last week in the municipality of Sugbongcogon.
“Laing tabang na usab kini para sa panginabuhian sa atong mga kaigsoona ug scientific na ang atong approach sa development sa agrikultura,” Elipe said.
