Ayuman named special assistant to the mayor

Caecent No-ot Magsumbol - The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines — After serving the Cebu City government as the disaster head in the previous administration, Ramil Ayuman has been named special assistant to Mayor Michael Rama for special projects.

Ayuman, former assistant secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and former Apas barangay captain, said his main focus is on the matters of disaster preparedness.

Ayuman is helping the city in the clearing operations to restore the three-meter easement zone along the waterways.

“Karon, tutok sa ta aning sa clearing operations together with councilor Jerry Guardo,” Ayuman told The Freeman.

He is also pushing for the conduct of drills, especially in flood-prone areas, for the safety of the residents and at the same time do some information drive on what to do before, during and after flooding and other calamities as well as how to help protect the environment.

Ayuman said it is best to educate the illegal settlers on what needs to be done during calamities while waiting for the proper interventions to be done by the government.

 “Duha may igo ani, aside nga matudluan silag unsay buhaton ug naay baha, we will also educate them sa proper segregation of garbage among others. I-instill sa ilaha ang ilahang resiliency,” said Ayuman.

Ayuman said he is just being practical knowing that restoration of the three-meter easement in the city’s waterways would take time to be implemented.

“Kung imo gyud ni tinud-on tanan karon on the trhee-meter easement, it would take time, kailangan dakong kwarta..So ang pinakaimportante karon is e-education nato ning mga informal settlers nga ngaa ani nga mga area…Tudluan unsay buhaton kung musaka na ang tubig, dapat naa tay focal personal diha…i-identify na mga leaders,” said Ayuman. — FPL (FREEMAN)
