GOOD MORNING!

THEME: “ACTIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH GO’S, NGO’S AND PO’S: THE KEY FOR ENHANCING SERVICE – A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE TO SOUTH COTABATENOS”

LET ME EMBARK MY ADDRESS WITH THE PASSAGE FROM THE FAMOUS FRENCH PHILOSOPHER VICTOR COUSIN, “YOU CAN ONLY GOVERN MEN BY SERVING THEM."
        
TRULY, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, SERVICE IS THE ESSENCE OF GOVERNANCE.

TODAY MARKS OUR FIRST YEAR OF INCUMBENCY, TOGETHER WITH THE CURRENT OFFICIALS OF THE PROVINCIAL ADMINISTRATION. PERMIT ME THEN TO MAKE A REPORT OF OUR MODEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

PRIOR TO NARRATING OUR SUMMARY OF ACHIEVEMENTS, LET ME SHARE A FEW OF MY PERSONAL INSIGHTS ON MY INITIAL YEAR AS YOUR GOVERNOR.

THREE WEEKS AGO, WE CELEBRATED THE BIRTHDAY OF OUR NATIONAL HERO DR. JOSE PROTACIO RIZAL, WHO SAID, “TO FORETELL THE DESTINY OF THE NATION, IT IS NECESSARY TO OPEN THE BOOK THAT TELLS HER PAST”. I BELIEVE OUR NATIONAL HERO DOES NOT ONLY REFER TO A NATION, HIS WORDS ARE AS RELEVANT TO OUR PROVINCE.

ALLOW ME THEN TO OPEN JUST A PAGE IN THE BOOK OF SOUTH COTABATO. I AM THE 5TH GOVERNOR OF THIS PROVINCE, SINCE ITS INCEPTION IN 1967, COMING AFTER THE NOTABLES: NAMELY, OUR FIRST ELECTED GOVERNOR, THE LATE DR. SERGIO MORALES, IN WHOSE TERM HE BORE THE PAIN OF CHILDBIRTH OF THE PROVINCE, AND TRANSFORMED IT INTO A PROGRESSING ONE; GOV. ISMAEL SUENO, WHO LED US FROM THE EDSA REVOLUTION UNDER A NEW CONSTITUTION, GOVERNOR HILARIO DE PEDRO III, IN WHOSE TERM, SOUTH COTABATO WAS SPLIT INTO TWO PROVINCES WITH THE CREATION OF THE SARANGANI PROVINCE AND OF COURSE, THE SOUTH COTABATO SPORTS COMPLEX AND THIS GYMNASIUM WE ARE NOW USING WAS BUILT; AND GOVERNOR DAISY FUENTES WHO LAID THE GROUNDWORK FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE PROVINCE AS A PREMIERE ECO-TOURISM DESTINATION WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LAKE SEBU ZIPLINE.

THESE PERSONAGES HAVE DONE A LOT FOR THE PROVINCE. I STAND BEFORE YOU WITH GREAT SENSE OF PRIDE, AND PRIVILEGE TO BE AMONG THESE NOTABLES… THE CHOSEN LEADER OF SOUTH COTABATO. I AM FOREVER THANKFUL TO THE ALMIGHTY, AND TO OUR PEOPLE FOR GIVING ME THIS RARE OPPORTUNITY AND SPECIAL MANDATE TO BE OF SERVICE TO YOU, TO BE ONE OF THE FEW, ENTRUSTED TO CHART THE DESTINY OF THIS PROVINCE.

BECAUSE OF THIS, I AM DETERMINED NOT TO WASTE THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE, FOCUSING ON THE VISION AND MISSION TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF OUR PEOPLE.

I AM NOW THE ADMINISTRATOR OF ROUGHLY 1.2 M SOUTH COTABATENOS AS ONE OF THE 80 PROVINCES OF OUR COUNTRY COMPRISING A POPULATION OF 95M FILIPINOS.

THOUGH MY ENTRY INTO POLITICS WAS MORE OF AN ACCIDENT RATHER THAN BY DESIGN, THIS VOCATION HAS NOW BEEN CARVED INTO MY PERSON. I HAVE NEVER DOUBTED THAT SERVICE IS ALWAYS A SUBLIME CALLING.

NOW, AFTER A YEAR IN OFFICE, I CAN SINCERELY TELL YOU, BEING A GOVERNOR IS A VERY DEMANDING JOB. THOSE WHO HAVE COME BEFORE ME WILL TELL YOU JUST THE SAME. THIS DEMANDS WHOLEHEARTED ATTENTION, HARD WORK AND SACRIFICES.

IT CAN ALSO BE STRESSFUL AT TIMES. EVEN WITH ALL THESE DIFFICULTIES THAT COME WITH THE OFFICE, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ECLIPSED BY THE JOY OF BEING AN INSTRUMENT IN THE FULFILLMENT FOR THE VISION OF OUR PROVINCE.

AS MARTIN LUTHER KING SAID,” THE ULTIMATE MEASURE OF A MAN IS NOT WHERE HE STANDS IN MOMENTS OF COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE, BUT WHERE HE STANDS AT TIMES OF CHALLENGE AND CONTROVERSY”. THOUGH AS DIFFICULT AS THIS IS, I ASSURE YOU, AS YOUR GOVERNOR, I AM VERY PASSIONATE TO TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE AND I RELISH IT.

HENCEFORTH, AFTER A YEAR OF INSPIRING AND STRESSFUL WORK, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WITH YOUR PATIENCE AND TOLERANCE, ALLOW ME TO TAKE YOU TO WHERE WE HAVE BEEN AND JOURNEY TO A VISION TOWARDS A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE FOR THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH COTABATO.

II. VISION / ELA

IN MY INAUGURAL SPEECH, I OUTLINED MY VISION FOR OUR PROVINCE:

A provincial government close to the people…

A provincial government transparent in all its dealings…

A provincial government without partisan politics…

A provincial government in critical, committed
and collaborative partnership with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, for the delivery of basic services to the grassroots level…

A provincial government with political willpower and vision…

A government in partnership with the private sectoR

A provincial government that prioritizes the health of its people…

A provincial government committed to educating its people and…

A provincial government committed to the protection of the environment…

IN COLLABORATION AND COORDINATION WITH OUR SANGGUNIANG PANLALAWIGAN, WE WERE ABLE TO FORMULATE OUR ELA ( EXECUTIVE-LEGISLATIVE AGENDA) WHICH NOW SERVES AS THE ROADMAP AND BLUEPRINT FOR THIS ADMINISTRATION/ TO FOLLOW IN ORDER TO SYSTEMATICALLY EFFECT PROGRAM/S AND PROJECTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR VISION FOR SOUTH COTABATO AND TO MAKE THIS ADMINISTRATION RESPONSIVE AND RELEVANT TO THE NEEDS OF OUR PEOPLE.

I HAVE ALWAYS STOOD BY MY IMPORTANT ADVOCACIES -- GOOD GOVERNANCE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND ENVIRONMENT. NOT TOO FAR BEHIND ARE: AGRICULTURE, PEACE AND ORDER, INFRASTRUCTURE, AND TOURISM GEARED TOWARDS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

Of course we would like to give credit where credit is due and with that I want to begin my report by recognizing the ground works laid down by my predecessor, Governor Daisy Avance-Fuentes and to ensure continuity, the programs we found relevant were improved by expanding THEIR coverage and increasing the budget. others were innovated to be more responsive to the clamor and the needs of the people of South Cotabato.

I  WILL BEGIN WITH GOVERNANCE…


AFTER ASSUMING OFFICE AS THE GOVERNOR OF THIS PROVINCE THERE WERE UNCERTAINTIES AS TO THE KIND OF GOVERNANCE AND LEADERSHIP THAT I HAVE TO PUT FORWARD WITH THE PUBLIC. AS PART OF THE POLICY OF OPENNESS AND TRANSPARENCY, THE FIRST TASK OF THIS NEW ADMINISTRATION WAS TO CONDUCT CONSULTATION MEETINGS WITH ALL THE DEPARTMENT HEADS TOGETHER WITH THEIR KEY PERSONNEL IN ORDER FOR ME TO FAMILIARIZE WITH THE PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS IMPLEMENTED BY THE VARIOUS OFFICES, THEIR RESPECTIVE JOB DESCRIPTIONS AND THE IMMEDIATE NEEDS OF EACH DEPARTMENT.

THIS PROVED TO BE HELPFUL SINCE I WAS ABLE TO LEARN THE DETAILS AND THE NITTY-GRITTY OF EACH DEPARTMENT’S OPERATIONS, WHICH BECAME MY CUE IN PUTTING FORWARD MEASURES IN IMPROVING OUTPUT AND EFFICIENCY.

DURING MY FIRST FEW DAYS IN OFFICE, I ISSUED NEW GUIDELINES ON PUNCTUALITY,  THE USE OF PROVINCIAL EQUIPMENTS AND FACILITIES, AND IN THE UTILIZATION OF OPERATING BUDGET OF ALL OFFICES, CARE FOR PROPERTIES AND AUSTERITY MEASURES TO SAVE ON RESOURCES .

WE ALSO REVIEWED THE SALARY SCALES OF OUR JOB ORDER PERSONNEL AND CAME UP WITH A RATIONALIZATION SCHEME WHEREIN THOSE EMPLOYEES RENDERING TECHNICAL AND HEALTH SERVICES SHOULD BE PAID MORE THAN OTHER WORKERS.

AS A RESULT, OUR JOB ORDER NURSES NOW RECEIVE PHP400.00 PER DAY AS COMPARED TO PHP260.00 THEY WERE PREVIOUSLY RECEIVING. A UTILITY WORKER NOW RECEIVES PHP250.00/DAY INSTEAD OF THE PHP200.00 /DAY THAT THEY USED TO RECEIVE WHICH WAS LOWER THAN THE MINIMUM WAGE.

WE DID BASIC HOUSEKEEPING BY CLEANING AND GROOMING THE CAPITOL BUILDINGS AND PREMISES INCLUDING PUTTING ORDER IN THE PARKING SYSTEM AS WELL AS THE INGRESS AND EGRESS OF VEHICLES.

WE ASSESSED THE MANNER BY WHICH WE AMORTIZE OUR LOANS.  WE DECIDED TO PAY THEM IN FULL AT THE START OF THE YEAR RATHER THAN MAKING MONTHLY OR QUARTERLY PAYMENTS AS WE REALIZED THAT BY DOING SO WE STAND TO SAVE PHP2.4 MILLION PESOS IN INTEREST PAYMENTS ALONE.

WE ALSO NEGOTIATED WITH BANKS ON THE INTEREST RATES OF OUR DEPOSITS AND THUS, WE WERE ABLE TO SECURE BETTER INTEREST RATES AND SERVICES FROM THEM.  WE HAVE EARNED A TOTAL PHP506,290.87 AS INCREMENTAL INTEREST REVENUES FROM VETERANS BANK AND DBP BECAUSE OF THESE  INITIATIVES.

IN CONSONANCE WITH PROVINCIAL ORDINANCE NO.2, SERIES OF 2010 OR OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE ANTI-SMOKING ORDINANCE, I ISSUED MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO.2 DATED SEPTEMBER 7, 2010, PROHIBITING SMOKING WITHIN THE PREMISES OF THE PROVINCIAL CAPITOL.

WE TRANSFERRED THE PROCESSING OF THE ASSISTANCE TO INDIVIDUALS IN CRISIS SITUATION(AICS) FROM THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE TO THE PSWDO SO THAT OUR PEOPLE WILL HAVE ACCESS TO COMPLETE SOCIAL SERVICES IN A SINGLE OFFICE.  THE FUND ALLOCATION FOR THE AICS WAS EQUITABLY DIVIDED AMONG THE 10 COMPONENT MUNICIPALITIES AND KORONADAL CITY TO REACH-OUT TO GREATER NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

A NO “NOON BREAK POLICY” WAS ADOPTED IN KEY PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES TO PROVIDE OUR PEOPLE WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO COMPLETE THEIR TRANSACTIONS WITHIN THE DAY WITHOUT ANY INTERRUPTION.

IN OUR COMMITMENT TO BE TRANSPARENT IN THE DISBURSEMENT OF PUBLIC FUNDS, WE COMPLIED WITH THE FULL DISCLOSURE PROTOCOLS PURSUANT TO DILG MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 2010-83 REQUIRING THE PUBLICATION AND/OR POSTING OF DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE USE OF AND DISBURSEMENT OF FUNDS AND STATUS OF PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS.

WE ESTABLISHED HOTLINE NUMBERS THAT CAN BE ACCESSED BY CONCERNED CITIZENS 24 HOURS A DAY SEVEN DAYS A WEEK TO REPORT CRIMES, EMERGENCY SITUATIONS, USE AND MOVEMENT OF GOVERNMENT VEHICLES AND HEAVY EQUIPMENT AND ABUSES OR MISDEMEANORS OF OFFICIALS AND EMPLOYEES FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION OF THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT.

WE HAVE WORKED WITH THE SANGUNIANG PANLALAWIGAN FOR THE PASSAGE OF THE REVISED REVENUE CODE OF 2011 WHICH I SIGNED LAST MAY 30, 2011. ITS LAST REVISION WAS IN 2006, AND IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN REVISED IN 2009  AS THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE MANDATES THAT THE REVISION SHOULD BE EVERY THREE YEARS.

LET US MOVE ON TO HEALTH...


IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DOH, WE ENROLLED A TOTAL OF 37,000 FAMILIES WITH PHILHEALTH. THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT USED THE CHLSS OR THE COMMUNITY HEALTH LIVING STANDARD SURVEY (15,000 FAMILIES) IN THE IDENTIFICATION OF RECIPIENTS WHEREAS DOH USED THE NHTS OR NATIONAL HOUSEHOLD TARGET SYSTEM (22,000 FAMILIES)  IN IDENTIFYING POOR AND DESERVING BENEFICIARIES.

WE ACCESSED FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR OUR INDIGENT HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM FROM VARIOUS GROUPS AND DONORS, THE YACAP PARTY LIST THRU HON. CAROL LOPEZ, KABATAAN PARTY LIST THRU HON. RAYMUND PALATINO, AKBAYAN PARTY LIST, BAYAN PARTY LIST, SENATOR CHIZ ESCUDERO, SENATOR FRANKLIN DRILLON, SEN. ZUBIRI, SEN. ANTONIO TRILLANES, REP. PEDRO ACHARON,  MAYOR PETER MIGUEL,  REP. DAISY FUENTES THRU LMP PRESIDENT ISIDRO LUMAYAG.

WE, SUSTAINED OUR PARTNERSHIP ENDEAVOR WITH THE MAHINTANA FOUNDATION INC. AND DOLE PHILIPPINES FOR AFFORDABLE MEDICINES (HEALTH PLUS) AT THE SOUTH COTABATO PROVINCIAL HOSPITAL.

WE ALSO PROMOTED ESSENTIAL HEALTHCARE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DEPED AND SMI BY PROVIDING SUPPLIES TO PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS AND PRESCHOOLERS TO PROMOTE THEIR PERSONAL HYGIENE.

WE HAVE ALLOCATED  PHP1.5 MILLION FROM THE SPECIAL EDUCATION FUND (SEF)  AND WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF SMI, WE WERE ABLE TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF HEALTH CARE KITS FROM 60,000 TO 100,000 TO BENEFIT MORE STUDENTS.

TO ADDRESS THE PERENNIAL PROBLEM OF THE UNAVAILABILITY OF MEDICAL SUPPLIES, WE ADOPTED THE PRACTICE OF BULK PROCUREMENT AND ONE TIME DELIVERY OF SUCH SUPPLIES TO THE HOSPITALS.

WE ALSO ALLOWED HOSPITALS TO RETAIN 25% OF THEIR COLLECTION FROM HOSPITAL FEES FOR THEIR REVOLVING FUND TO ENABLE THEM TO PURCHASE MEDICINES AND SUPPLIES TO AUGMENT THEIR EXISTING STOCKS.

SO WE PROVIDED AN HONORARIUM OF PHP1,000.00 EACH FOR OUR 175 VOLUNTEER NURSES.

WE ALSO INCREASED THE HONORARIA OF BHW’s AND BNS FROM PHP150.00  TO PHP300.00 MONTHLY AND PHP350.00 TO PHP500.00 MONTHLY,  RESPECTIVELY.

COME OCTOBER, WE WILL HAVE THE OPERATION SMILE.

WE PROMOTED BLOOD DONATION AND IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PNRC, WE WERE ABLE TO COLLECT 154 UNITS OF BLOOD IN A SINGLE BLOOD-LETTING ACTIVITY LAST DECEMBER 30, 2010.

WE WORKED HAND IN HAND WITH THE USAID AS OUR PROVINCE IS A RECIPIENT OF ITS HEALTH GOV PROGRAM IN PROJECT HEALTHPRO. THE TECHNICAL PACKAGE INCLUDES BCC PLANNING, INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION, AND COUNSELING (IPC/C), COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION, SUPPORT TO HEALTH EVENTS, MASS MEDIA AND MONITORING AND EVALUATION. THE PROJECT IS NOW IN THE MUNICIPALITIES OF LAKE SEBU, T’BOLI, TANTANGAN, TAMPAKAN, POLOMOLOK AND KORONADAL CITY.

WE WERE ALSO GIVEN RECOGNITION FOR OUR NUTRITION PROGRAM AS OUR PROVINCE HAS BEEN A RECIPIENT OF THE CROWN AWARD FROM 2004-2010. THE PROGRAM IS NOW GEARED TOWARD THE REDUCTION OF PREVALENCE OF MALNUTRITION IN THE PROVINCE THRU DIFFERENT PROGRAM AND PROJECTS IMPLEMENTED BY THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT.

THIS WILL ADDRESS THE SHORTAGE OF 15,000 ARMCHAIRS IN ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE PROVINCE.
IN RETURN, THE BENEFICIARY SCHOOLS ARE REQUIRED TO PLANT 10 TREES FOR EVERY CHAIR GIVEN TO THEM.  WE EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO PLANT 150,000 TREES THIS YEAR FROM THIS PROGRAM.

V.  Closing Statements

Today I have set my vision.  Our journey to realize this vision may be long and hard but as your Governor, I WILL LEAD THE WAY. As Roselyn Carter said:  “A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessary want to go,  but ought to be”.

At this point, allow me to thank and recognize my partners in governance:  the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of South Cotabato headed by their able presiding officer, our beloved Vice Governor Elmo Bañez Tolosa. I hope we will continue with the SP, our relationship of critical collaboration. They have worked so hard and have done so much in so short a period of time practiSing their motto “Legislation beyond partisanship.”

Now, I am assured that they will give me their continuous support for I know, like all of us, we want to make South Cotabato a better place.

Let me also thank our partners: the NGOs, the Civil Society and all the sectors.  Without you, I cannot stand tall today.

I cannot overemphasize that GOOD GOVERNANCE IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS.   I need the help of everyone.  I AM asking the religious sector, the civil society, the NGOs, POs, cooperatives, the business sector,  MY  fellow public servants, AND our people to continuously join me  in making South Cotabato a haven of peace and development, with a healthy, educated, and productive citizenry living harmoniously in a safe and healthful environment.

Let me end By this words culled from a speech of a mayor OF Detroit, USA “Good government creates an environment to help regular people do extraordinary things. It inspires people to work together and take responsibility for their community”.

To my family, friends and supporters, thank you for the inspiration; and to my critics, thank you likewise for the motivation.

Sa inyo tanan, madamo gid nga salamat... Padayon,  South Cotabato!
