DUMAGUETE Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo urged the youth of Barangay Bajumpandan and the entire city not to destroy their future by getting into drugs.
Remollo was amazed seeing more than 500 children, along with their parents gathered by officials of the barangay headed by Crispin Patrimonio, during the Children’s Congress and Fun Day of Bajumpandan over the weekend.
He announced that the forthcoming Children’s Day and Share-A-Meal of the city government are for selected children from the city’s 30 barangays.
“Dinhi sa Dumaguete, gusto ko nga modagko mo nga mahimong sulondon nga mga bata, mga ulitawo. Dili mo mag-droga, dili mag-standby (Here in Dumaguete, I would like to see you grow up to be responsible youth. Do not use drugs, do not be vagrants),” Remollo said.
He called on them to be in school and to finish their studies because the present administration is bringing investors to open up lots of job opportunities for them in the future.
The mayor also announced plans of Camella Homes to construct a mall in the barangay in the near future, so they do not need to go to downtown Dumaguete to shop.
The city also plans to establish a two-story mini-hospital on a government lot in Barangay Talay, along with a fire department and the area’s police headquarters.
Another plan is the establishment of a government center and a coliseum, where sporting activities can be held, hopefully, in Barangay Bajumpandan, Remollo said. (PNA)
