CEBU Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia wants Cebuanos to “feel” the impact of the progress of Cebu Province that has been tagged by the Commission of Audit (COA) as the richest province in the Philippines for six consecutive years.
“The information that Cebu Province is the richest province resonated across the country. We are number one. We surpassed 80 other provinces. But should we just leave it like that? It’s not right for me that every Cebuano has not felt the services and assistance of Cebu Province, the richest province in the country,” she said in Cebuano.
She made this statement during the second round of Caravan of Services of the Cebu Provincial Government in Moalboal town on Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
Garcia also said that the distinction as the richest province in the country is a “challenge to pursue more projects that will have an effect on the lives of Cebuanos at the grassroots level.”
