Sergio Osmeña Jr.

IYO ANTOY - Antolin dela Serna (Banat) - December 5, 2020 - 12:00am

Nag-holiday kita gahapon pahinugod ni kanhi Senador Sergio “Serging” Osmeña, Jr. Of course daghan ang wala na makaila kaniya. Ania kining gikan sa Internet:

Senador, gikan sa Dec. 30, 1965 hangtud Dec. 30, 1971; Mayor sa dakbayan sa Sugbo,  Dec. 30, 1967 – January 3, 1968; Dec. 30, 1963 – September 16, 1965; Dec. 30, 1959 – January  1, 1960; December 30, 1955 – September 12,  1957.

Ayaw mo’g kahibong tungod kay si Serging molansar matag eleksiyon walay pilde-pilde.

 Nahimong  Mayor sa dakbayan sa Sugbo, sulod sa tulo ka termino.

Gobernador: December 30, 1951 – December 30, 1955; 2nd District Representative, March 18, 1957 – December 30, 1961. Kahinumdom ko nga sa iyang pagka-Representante mihangyo siya sa Kongreso  nga kahatagan siya’g helicopter alang sa iyang pag-monitor sa kahimtang sa kabukiran sa Sugbo ug alang sa pagbaton sa peace and order sa lalawigan ug dakbayan sa Sugbo.

Natawo December 4,1916. Mi-gradwar summa cum laude gikan sa Ateneo de Manila University sa tuig 1935, sa kurso Bachelor of Arts, ug summa cum laude gikansa New York University sa 1936 sa kurso Bachelor of Science in Commerce. Tapus sa pag-graduate, si Serging nagbukas og import-export business sa New York.

Sa miaging ikaduhang gubat sa kalibotan, giingon dinhi, atong kutluon: “Osmeña was accused of collaborating with the Japanese in  World War II. He overcame the charges and returned to the Philippines and became President of the De La Rama Steamship Co.”

Sa ato nang gibatbat sa itaas, ania ang iyang political career: ”In 1951, he was elected provincial governor of Cebu and Mayor of Cebu City for three terms in 1955, 1959 and 1963. Elected as representative for the second district of Cebu in 1958, his notable work as fiscalizer brought him recognition from the Congressional Press Club which voted him as one of the Ten Most Outstanding Congressmen of 1959. In the November 1965 elections, he won a seat in the Philippine Senate.

Mao kini ang hamubong asoy sa kinabuhi ni Serging alang niadtong wala na makaila kaniya, nga atong  nakutlo gikan sa Internet.

Sa inyo nang nasayran, ang holiday declaration na-contain sa Proclamation No. 1053 nga gitiman-an ni Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, nga nagkanayon: “It is but fitting and proper that the people of the Province of Cebu be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies, subject to community quarantine, social distancing, and health measures.”

Sa iyang bahin, si Mayor Edgar Labella, mahitungod sa pagdeklarar nga holiday ang kasumaran sa  pagkatawo ni Serging, nagkanayon: “The purpose is to give the next generation and generation to come to be fully aware that at one point, there was a Cebuano who made a difference in the lives of the Cebuanos with the construction of the North Reclamation project, with the bridge connecting Mactan Cebu and for having conceptualized the Mactan Cebu International Airport.

“Serging already thought ahead of his time. That there was going to be a time that the jumbo jets will replace the propeller type and these need a longer runway and the best place was Mactan.”

Diha pay plano si Serging nga iyang himuon nga free port ang isla sa Mactan.
