Davao de Oro — A new face of governance officially sets Davao de Oro province on a trajectory of progress and development focusing on the welfare of the people of the whole province in terms of health care, education, infrastructure, and commendable public service.

On July 4, 2022, Governor Dorothy Montejo Gonzaga gave her message during the Monday convocation at the provincial capitol lobby before the whole workforce of the provincial government instilling them with three attributes for exemplary public service for the people: faith, hope, and love.

In the governor’s message, the administration will give priority to adequate health care service to Dabawenyos in the four provincial hospitals in the province: DdOPH Pantukan, DdoPH Montevista, DdOPH Maragusan, and DdOPH Laak.

The administration will also revisit the scholarship program of the provincial government and plans to maximize its resources thereby extending the scope of the program for the admission of more grantees, making equitable access and opportunity for tertiary education, “Mas maayo gyud ug makapa-eskwela ta because when they’re educated, their lives will really change,” said Gov. Gonzaga.

Moreover, the administration will also maximize the available resources of the PLGU, from the machinery to its budget, for the establishment of more infrastructure projects.

“I'm really thankful and proud seeing all of you (employees) in attendance today, kay mao ra gyud na ang kapital sa atung pag panerbisyo, our love for the service” added Gov. Gonzaga.
