CANDABA -- A group of tricycle drivers here lauded Governor Lilia Pineda’s plan to sponsor a motorcycle trouble-shooting seminar.
The proposed project is aimed at providing the drivers an alternative source of income.
Pineda earlier called for the mobilization of various Tricycle Operators Drivers Association in the province to give the tricycle drivers with technical skills involving motorcycle repair and maintenance.
The group said they are glad that the Provincial Government is giving importance to drivers like them.
“Sana matuloy po ito. Malaking tulong kung matutuhan ng mga tulad naming ang pagkumpuni sa tricycle para kung sakali man at magkaproblema ay kami na mismo ang gagawa makakatipid pa kami ng upa sa gawa,” said Amador Galang, a tricycle driver here.
Galang said their group is happy because despite the busy schedule of the governor, she still finds way to help and improve their lives by making them productive through livelihood program.
“Ngayon lang kami nabibigyan ng ganitong pansin. Ilang gobernador na rin ang dumaan sa probinsya,” another tricycle driver said.
After the proposed seminar on motorcycle repair and maintenance, the Provincial Government vowed to provide the necessary support, particularly with the provision of tools and other equipments.
