    Agusan del Sur vows to give Robredo another landslide win

    Agusan del Sur vows to give Robredo another landslide win

    Vice President Leni Robredo capped off her campaign in Mindanao with a grand rally in Agusan del Sur, which vowed to replicate on May 9 the landslide victory it gave her in the 2016 vice presidential election.

    In Prosperidad on Thursday, May 5, the crowd at the “Angat Buhay Agusan Del Sur: Liyag para kay Leni” grand rally at the Datu Lipus Makapandong Cultural Center was more than 70,000 strong.

    “‘Liyag’ – it’s a Manobo word. Ibig sabihin po pagmamahal namin sa ‘yo bilang Bise Presidente,” Agusan del Sur 2nd District Representative Adolph Edward “Eddiebong” Plaza said at the rally organized by his National Unity Party.

    With Agusan del Sur 1st District Representative Alfelito Bascug, Agusan del Sur Governor Santiago Cane, and Vice Governor Samuel Tortor, Plaza raised Robredo’s hands as a show of support.

    Agusan del Sur gave Robredo a landslide victory in her 2016 vice-presidential bid with 148,000 votes, 97,000 more than former Senator Alan Peter Cayetano’s 51,000.

    “Gusto ko pong kunin ang pagkakataon unang-una sa lahat, magpasalamat sa inyo dahil noong 2016, napakalaki ng pinanalo ko dito sa Agusan del Sur. Noong humingi po ako sa inyong tulong bilang kandidato for vice president, hindi niyo pa ako kilala. Baguhan ako, marahil binotohan niyo ako kasi naggarantiya sina Cong. Eddiebong na dapat akong tiwalaan,” Robredo said.

    “Pero ngayon po na bumabalik ako, humihingi ng tulong niyo, tumatakbo na bilang presidente ngayon, mas malakas na po ang loob kong humingi ng tulong,” she continued. “Dahil hinaharap ko po kayo ngayon, matitignan ko kayo mata sa mata. Masasabi ko sa inyo, hindi ko sinayang ang tiwala na binigay ninyo sa akin.”

    Despite its meager budget, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) has partnered with the municipality of Veruela in 2017 in providing scholarship for out-of-school youth to undergo a skills training program at the Dualtech Training Center in Laguna while receiving salary during their internship period.

    The OVP also conducted medical missions in Veruela and Loreto in 2016; provided construction materials, relief goods and rice packs for families affected by Typhoon Vinta in Loreto and Veruela in 2018; relief packs for 4,500 families affected by Typhoon Vicky in Rosario in 2020; and medical supplies and personal protective equipment sets for medical institutions and frontliners across the province during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    If elected President, Robredo promised Plaza and Cane her “100% support” to Agusan del Sur’s Upland Sustainable Agri-Forestry Development (USAD) Program that addresses poverty in remote villages in the province to ensure that no one gets left behind in terms of development.

    “Dapat proud kayo sa USAD Program. Isa siya sa mga pinarangalan na Galing Pook Awardees sa mahuhusay na government programs kaya sobrang saludo po ako. Nag-umpisa kayo limang barangay lang ngayon 127 barangays na. 5,000 farmers na ang nakikinabang,” Robredo said.

    She also vowed to promote the welfare of the Indigenous People (IP) community in the province:
    “Sisiguraduhin po natin na napapangalagaan natin sila at nabibigyan natin sila ng mas maraming pagkakataon para umasenso. Pero ito po lahat, hindi ko ito kayang gawin kung hindi niyo ako sasamahan sa laban.”

    Robredo expressed her gratitude to the local officials joining her in her fight for an honest governance and supporting her campaign to empower the people.

    “Ibang klase po kapag ang local officials naninindigan para sa bayan, hindi dahil sa politika. Hindi po madali para sa local officials tumaya sa akin. Pero ang local officials po natin dito, tumataya dahil ang pakiramdam nila, ito ‘yung magbibigay ng kabutihan para sa Agusan del Sur,” she said.

    With only a few days left to election day, Robredo issued a reminder to Agusanons:

    “Sabado na lang pwedeng magkampanya. Sa Sunday po, Mothers’ Day, magpapahinga tayo. Sa Lunes pupunta na tayo sa mga voting centers. Ang iboboto po natin hindi ang kandidato, pero ang iboboto natin ang mahal nating bayan na Pilipinas,” she said. [End]
