CEBU, Philippines —  Cebu City North District congressional aspirant Aven Piramide vows to help the informal settlers if he gets elected to the House of Representatives on May 9 elections.

Speaking at a local media forum, Piramide lamented at how informal settlers are exploited by candidates during election campaigns but are always forgotten once the elections are over.

"Matag piniliay permi gyud sila mahisgotan. Pero kun mahuman na ang eleksyon, mahilom rapud," said Piramide.

With his legal prowess, Piramide said he will help the informal settlers acquire their own land through affordable prices. He also promised to make representation with the national government to help the landless.

Piramide also plans to push for a communication hub in the highest and safest area in the city to ensure a seamless flow of communication during emergencies.

It aims to avoid communication signal interruptions during disasters like what happened when typhoon Odette hit Cebu City. As a lawyer, Piramide said he will use this gift to make laws to uplift the Filipinos and let his "helping hand" to rebuild the sense of patriotism.

Some of his target programs include medical assistance funds, burial assistance, scholarship, free legal consultations, medical programs, recreational center, sanctuary center, among others. — FPL (FREEMAN)
