Bantay Bayanihan seeks
assessment in ‘dev't ready' Neg. Or.
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
Marietta Jambora, lead convener of the Bantay Bayanihan-Negros Oriental chapter, said Tuesday it is time to assess the accomplishments of key players after the declaration of Negros Oriental as a “conflict-manageable and development ready” province.
On May 7, 2014, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, in collaboration with the Philippine National Police, declared Negros Oriental as having reached such status, with the insurgency problem falling to an insignificant level.
Jambora, however, said the Provincial Peace and Order Council, chaired by Gov. Roel Degamo, is taking the lead in making sure that various line government agencies and other stakeholders have followed through with their programs and projects since the declaration of the province as such.
