DEL PILAR, CABADBARAN CITY, Agusan del Norte (April 29, 2019) – In response to the call of their barangay leaders, more or less 200 residents manifested their support by doing the symbolic signing of the resolution declaring the CPP/NPA Terrorists (CNTs) as Persona Non-Grata on April 29, 2019 at the Barangay Gym, Canaway, Kitcharao, Province of Agusan Del Norte.
Four days since the Resolution No.05 series of 2019, declaring the CPP/NPA Terrorists (CNTs) as Persona Non-Grata was unanimously signed by the Barangay Council, the council headed by Punong Barangay Charlemin P Morales called for a Special General Assembly and broached to their constituents the declaration of CNTs as unwelcomed in their barangay.
Kagawad Tito Bago appealed to his fellow Mamanua to unite.
“Ang usa sa makapalinaw sa atong komunidad mao ang pagtinabangay tungod sa pagtinabangay makab- ot nato ang kalinaw ug kalambuan”, said Tito Bago.
Residents who attended the Special General Assembly also renewed their oath of allegiance to the government in a ceremony led by 1LT Jose Roque, Commanding Officer, Bravo Company of 29th Infantry “Matatag” Battalion.
“As the second barangay that approved a resolution against CNTs, I appeal to you to work hand in hand in securing your barangay and to achieve peace from the threat and atrocities of these terrorists and to finally welcome developments. A simple information about the CNTs that you can provide us will indeed help us design our prompt and right
action against them,” said LTC Isagani O Criste, Commanding Officer, 29th Infantry (Matatag) Battalion.
