Barangay officials were left pleasantly surprised after General Santos City Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao announced she was giving out P15,000 in cash to each barangay, after completing the DILG’s Barangay Newly-Elected Officials (BNEO) towards Grassroots Renewal and Empowerment for Accountable and Transparent (GREAT) Barangays Program held in Davao City.

In a message to Politiko, Pacquiao said that ten barangays have receieved the cash gift totalling P150,000. She said the money came from their family’s personal funds.

“10 barangays tig-15k lang. Pahalipay kay nahuman gyud nila ang training. Pandagdag nila sa kanilang pa-premyo,” the mayor said.

Meanwhile, GenSan’s Liga ng mga Barangay President Alberto “Bobby” Pacquiao underscored the importance of enhancing the competencies and capacities of barangay officials as this could help them jumpstart their leadership journey.

“Ako nagsugod ko as Barangay Kapitan ug isip usa ka public official, kailangan nato na maka-attend ug mga seminars and trainings, aron ang atong mga matun-an atong madala ug ma-apply sa atong tagsa-tagsang barangay,” Bobby Pacquiao said.
