Almost 50 House members join BPSF in Sultan Kudarat

NEARLY 50 members of the House of Representatives from Mindanao on Sunday participated in the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF) in Sultan Kudarat, the biggest such event so far since the service flagship program of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. was launched last year.

Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez, whom the President is sending to the fair to represent him, said the presence of a large number of House colleagues in the event “demonstrates our unity and determination to serve our people, bring government service directly to them and make life easier and better for them.”

“Today, we stand together in our commitment to uplift every Filipino. Despite our political divergence, our collective aim remains resolute – to construct a Bagong Pilipinas that leaves no one behind,” Romualdez said.

“Our substantial presence here at the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair underscores the broad-based support for President Marcos’s decisive leadership in addressing the country’s most pressing challenges,” he said.

The Speaker stressed that the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair aims to enhance public service delivery, foster community engagement and tackle pressing national issues.

It is a one-stop shop where government agencies in the regions like the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Labor and Employment and Land Transportation Office deliver assistance and service instantly to the people, and where residents can directly transact business with such offices, he added.

The leader of the 300 plus-strong House pointed out that agency officials and knowledgeable personnel would be on hand to attend to the concerns of residents.

Among the Mindanao lawmakers who attended the BPSF in Sultan Kudarat include: Reps. Migs Nograles, Christian Unabia, Bambi Emano, Lordan Suan, Toto Suansing, Yasser Balindong, Divina Yu, John Flores, Khymer Olaso, Aldu Dujali, Joboy Aquino, Wilter Palma, Sam Santos, Peter Miguel, Ed Lumayag, Alan Ecleo, Mannix Dalipe, Maricar Zamora, Bingo Matugas, Steve Solon, Glona Labadlabad, Pinpin Uy, Victoria Yu, Nelson Dayanghirang, Munir Arbison, Antonieta Eudela, Loreto Acharon, Alfelito Bascug, Mohamad Paglas and Jason Almonte.

Majority Leader Manuel Jose “Mannix” Dalipe, Senior Deputy Speaker Aurelio “Dong” Gonzales Jr., Tingog Party-list Rep. Jude Acidre, and 4Ps Party-list Rep. JC Abalos were also present to support the Sultan Kudarat BPSF.

The Sultan Kudarat leg of the BPSF was the 12th Serbisyo Fair to be held since it was launched last year. 

It was also the first Serbisyo caravan in Region 12 or SOCCSKSARGEN, and benefitted 150,000 residents of the province.
