New Liga ng Barangay President in Misor Thanks Governor Unabia’s Support 

By Gerry Lee Gorit

MISAMIS ORIENTAL – The new Liga ng Barangay President and member of the provincial board thanked Governor Unabia and the Liga ng mga Barangays for their total support on his installation. 

Provincial Board Member/Liga ng Barangay Robert “Bobet” de Lara said as the new Liga ng Barangay President, he will make sure to support the poverty eradication programs of Governor Peter M. Unabia. 

“Usa sa mga major programs of Governor Unabia kay mano man Barangay Development Programs (BDP) so atong pagabuhaton ang tanan to give our full support to the governor,” de Lara told reporters.

He said, based on the State of the Province Address (SOPA) of the governor, the province currently has a total 19 percent poverty incidence. 

But the governor is fully committed to reducing it to a single digit, and we are here to fully support Governor Unabia, de Lara said. 

He said the poverty alleviation programs of the governor sounds too ambitious but with the help of all sectors and the Liga ng brgy. it is very doable. 

ON BARANGAY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS To support Unabia’s main thrusts, he created three specialized programs in every barangay. 

The barangay needs livelihood programs and this is now one of the major projects of the governor, de Lara claimed. In the past, some projects in the barangays are not helping them. 

Some barangays were given equipment that was not really helping the barangays. “In that case, sayang ang mga “mejoras,” the new Liga ng brgy. 

President said. “Right now, we will make sure the barangays will have worthwhile projects especially in poverty alleviation programs of the province.” 



De Lara said the province has recently collaborated with top officials in South Korea to eventually help the province gather new employment and in fact, right now, there were already 20 skilled workers from the province that are now employed in South Korea. 

This year, de Lara added, more than 100 skilled workers will be sent to South Korea to work and this can help selected people in the province in their economic status. 

 The provincial government is also negotiating with key officials in Taiwan for the same purpose that skilled workers in the province will be able to work in Taiwan like what they did with the South Korean Government.
