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.

Aside from the province of Cebu, the City of Naga, and the towns of Sogod, Samboan, and Tudela in Camotes Island were also among the 448 local government units that passed the criteria and met the requirement of SGLG; financial housekeeping, social protection, disaster preparedness, environmental management, business friendliness and competitiveness, and peace and order.

Vice Mayor Emerito Calderon Jr. of Samboan said despite being classified as a fifth-class municipality they were still able to achieve such recognition.

“It’s a great honor not only for the elected officials but for the whole local government of Samboan! The effort we all put in reflects on our determination to serve our people well! And despite our being a fifth-class municipality, we were able to attain and achieve this award because everybody did what we have to do” he said.

In Central Visayas, aside from Cebu, the province of Siquijor and Bohol also received the same award. No announcement has been made of the formal awarding or the venue. (FREEMAN)
