‘May quorum sa Tagum’: 167 lawmakers join Marcos’ Serbisyo caravan in Davao del Norte

At least 167 congressmen—more than half of the total members of the House of Representatives, joined Friday’s launching of the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF) in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, a known bailiwick of former President Rodrigo Duterte.

Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez expressed his gratitude to his fellow legislators who attended the event including his mentor former President and incumbent Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

“Tunay na tayo’y nagagalak at napakaraming kongresista ang nakarating sa programa ng ating Pangulong Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. at personal na masaksihan kung paano nakakatulong sa mga mamamayan ang bawat ayudang inilalaan natin sa ating national budget,” Romualdez said.

There are currently 307 members of the House at present.

“Dahil sa ating nasasaksihan sa BPSF, makakaasa ang mga kababayan natin na sisiguruhin pa rin ng Kongreso ang pagpapatuloy ng mga programang ito sa administrasyong Marcos. At patuloy pa din ang ating paghahanap ng mga paraan para lalong makatulong sa ating mga kababayan,” Romualdez added.

A total of P913 million worth of financial assistance and services were delivered to over 250,000 beneficiaries in the province on the two-day event that started on Friday.

The BPSF-Davao del Norte is the 19th installment of the Serbisyo caravan, the 8th in Mindanao, and the second in the Davao region.

“Dalangin natin, mas marami pang kinatawan ang makadalo sa susunod nating Serbisyo Fair. Masarap po ang pakiramdam na nakikita ng ating mga kongresista ang tulong na naibibigay ng pamahalaan sa ating mga kababayan para patuloy ding suportahan ang mga programa ng gobyerno,” Romualdez stressed.

Aside from lawmakers, House Deputy Secretary General Sofonias Gabonada Jr., one of the heads of the BPSF National Secretariat, said local government officials from Davao del Norte and nearby provinces attended the event.
