BUENAVISTA, AGUSAN DEL NORTE– 102 youths from Higaonon Tribe were enlightened after undergoing a 3-day stay-in Barangay Youth Leadership Summit from August 9-11, 2019 at Lawan-lawan National High School, Barangay Lawan-lawan, Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte.

The activity informed the youth on the different programs of the government. It also nurtured them to become responsible citizens and advocates of the government’s peace and development initiatives. It has a theme “Kabatan-onan Hiusahon aron Kaugmaon ug Kahapsay Maangkon” (Unite the Youth for Brighter Future). The event includes series of lectures from different stakeholders, small group discussions, Disaster Preparedness Orientation, Cultural Presentation, and Team-building activities.

Congresswoman Ma. Angelica Rosedell M Amante-Matba, the Guest Speaker during the Opening Ceremony, reminded the youth not to believe on the deceitful scheme of the CPP-NPA Terrorists. “Don’t be deceived by the bad elements specially the CPP-NPAs who bring conflict and hinder government projects that benefit the people. Their recruitment on the youth especially from the Indigenous Peoples’ community, many lives are wasted, many youths died during encounters against the government troops. I encourage everyone to be vigilant and do not believe in the propaganda of the CPP-NPA. Take care of your lives so that in the future, you, the youth, will be the ones who will replace us to be the leader of our nation.” – Cong. Amante-Matba stated.

Moreover, Mayor Avelina S. Rosales of the Municipality of Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte impressed among the participants that “I hope you will remember all your learnings from the lectures so that you will not be easily deceived or brainwashed by the terrorist group. We want the residents of Barangay Lawan-lawan to live in peace and prosperity.”

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Colonel Francisco L. Molina Jr, Commanding Officer, 23IB stressed that “the youth are active and has the potential to become leaders in the future. Start learning for the betterment of Barangay Lawan-lawan and for you to have better lives.” He also impressed to the participants that security is not only the responsibility of the Military. “I would also like to intimate to everyone that security is everybody’s responsibility” – Molina added
