War vs corruption, poverty, illiteracy and injustice call of Independence day observance in Surigao Norte

In a short but meaningful observance of the 111th Independence Day celebration here in the city, local officials called on the people to waged war against corruption, poverty, illiteracy and injustice.

Surigao City Mayor Alfonso Casurra in his short message emphasized the war against corruption as he presented to the Department of the Interior and Local Gov’t and Civil Service Commission the Surigao City Citizens Manual aimed at curbing the problem of red tape in the government.

Surigao del Norte Gov. Robert Ace Barbers, in his opening message recalled the city’s historical event. “Kining atong dakbayan, usa ka lugar diin adunay historical event na nahitabo. Alang sa kasayuran sa tanan, ang Surigao del Norte dihang dapita sa Ipil ug Punta Bilar diha mismo kada tuig atong gisaulog ang commeration of the Battle of Surigao Strait. (Our city is a place where there is a historical event happened. For the information of everyone, the province of Surigao del Norte somewhere in Ipil and Punta Bilar, every year we commemorate the Battle of Surigao Strait.)”

“And that commemoration is our manifestation sa atong (in our) history. The commemoration of the Philippine Independence Day marks the day when our forefathers have declared war and independence for our nation.”

He then urged everyone to declare war against poverty, illiteracy and injustice. “Today as we celebrate the 111th Independence Day I urged everybody to declare war starting today. Each and everybody must declare war against the bondage of poverty, war against illiteracy, war against injustice.”

These are the wars according to Gov. Barbers that the people must have to fight and face today.

He also challenged everyone to prepare a better future for all the children. “For this is our obligation in the next generations to come,” Barbers said.

“As a leader in my own right, I will try my best and to the best of my ability, to fight these wars with our mentor and hopefully these wars that we declare must imbibe in the minds and hearts of every Filipino.”

Barbers acknowledged the complexity of these wars but with the strong union and with the unity among the people, “we will definitely win these wars,” he concluded. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
