For 3rd straight year; Cebu Province cited for good governance

CEBU, Philippines — For the third consecutive year, the Cebu provincial government has again been awarded the Seal of Good Local Governance by the Department of Interior and Local Government.

The Province of Cebu previously won the award in 2015 and 2016.

Governor Hilario Davide dedicated the award to all Cebuanos.

“Dili kini nato makuha kung wala ang pagtinabangay sa gobyerno ug katawhan. Busa atong doblehon pa ang atong paningkamot alang sa kalambuan sa matag Sugboanon. With great pride and humility, I will dedicate this award to the Cebuano people,” he said.

Davide said being recognized for three consecutive years shows that one way to carry out the mandate of the government is through participatory governance.

“It fleshes out new ideas with all stakeholders taking part in the formulation of sound policies, programs, and projects of the Provincial Government,” Davide added.
