“As usual, I brought with me my department heads because they are the main actors of this great commendation from the DILG-Central Office. They were the ones who sacrificed their personal concerns…they really worked hard for this. I was just, as always, the anchorman guiding them on what to do,” Emano said.
Emano expressed gratitude to the DILG-Misamis Oriental Provincial Office through Provincial Director Edward Bhagwani for assisting them in completing all the requirements necessary to avail of the DILG’s program on good governance campaign.

The two towns (Salay and Alubijid and two component cities (Gingoog and El Salvador) are among the awardees of the SGLG in Misamis Oriental.
Governor Emano said the award is embedded with P3 million cash prize which can be used to construct the Capitol’s Pasalubong Center or a Tourism Center at the Capitol Compound “that every time the employees see it, they will be reminded of their hard work and cooperation to achieve the award.”
“…and to inspire them every day as they go to work or visit the Capitol during weekends together with their families and friends,” the governor added. (pio misor)
