MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Bong Go visited Candijay on Wednesday to celebrate the town’s 169th founding anniversary, an event attended by Rep. Alexie Tutor, Mayor Thamar Olaivar, Vice Mayor Christopher Tutor as well as mayors and other officials of nearby municipalities.

In his speech, Go acknowledged the rich history and cultural heritage of Candijay, praising the resilience and unity of its people throughout the years. He commended the progress the town has made and expressed his optimism for its future.

The senator went on to emphasize his commitment to support the development of Candijay and the entire province of Bohol. He emphasized the need to bring public services closer to the communities to achieve a more inclusive development.

“There’s a lot more I want to improve in the community, including infrastructure and health care services. Even before, I have been very supportive of Bohol,” Go said.

Go, vice chair of the Senate committee on finance, has supported numerous projects in Candijay, such as the rehabilitation of roads, construction of multipurpose buildings, installation of streetlights in some barangays. Along with other lawmakers and local leaders, he also supported the construction of the Candijay Sports Complex, which he briefly inspected earlier that day.

Meanwhile, Tutor acknowledged Go’s presence and thanked him for making time to personally celebrate with Boholanos in the festivities.

On the same day, Go inspected the Super Health Center being built in Candijay. Super Health Centers were also funded in other parts of Bohol such as in Buenavista, Dauis, Sagbayan, Talibon, Antequera, Balilihan, Bien Unido, Carmen, Panglao, Ubay and Tagbilaran City.

Through the collective efforts of Go, the Department of Health, local government units and fellow lawmakers, sufficient funds have been allocated for the construction of 307 Super Health Centers in 2022 and 322 in 2023.

The senator also encouraged those with health concerns to visit GCGMH or Don Emilio del Valle Memorial Hospital in Ubay, both of which house a Malasakit Center if they need medical-related assistance from the government.
