The biggest: 95 lawmakers join Bagong Pilipinas in Tawi-Tawi

By Billy Begas

Some 95 members of the House of Representatives joined the launching of the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF) in Tawi-Tawi.

Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez, one of the main proponents and prime mover of the BPSF, said he was pleased to see 95 lawmakers attending the two-day service caravan that started on Thursday.

“Atin pong ikinagagalak ang presensya ng 95 na miyembro ng Kamara de Representantes dito sa BARMM, sa Tawi-Tawi. Hindi biro ang paglalakbay natin dito ngayon, pero hindi ito inalintana ng ating mga kasamahan para masaksihan ang programa ni Pangulong Marcos Jr.,” Romualdez said.

“At tunay naman na nakakaalis ng pagod ang makita natin ang ating mga kababayan na nagbebenepisyo sa mga programang ating pinopondohan sa Kongreso. Ang bawat numerong ating pinagdedebatehan sa Kamara ay may katumbas na pamilyang makikinabang sa ayudang ating aaprubahan,” he added.

Tawi-Tawi Gov. Yshmael Sali and Rep. Dimszar Sali both served as local hosts for the event.

“Nais kong pasalamatan ang ating mga kinatawan na nandito ngayon. Sabay-sabay nating saksihan ang kalinga ng ating Pangulo lalong-lalo na sa Mindanao. Ito ang pam-pitong lugar sa Mindanao na napuntahan ng BPSF, at hindi ito ang magiging huli,” the Speaker said.

The Tawi-Tawi BPSF is the 18th installment of the Serbisyo Caravan which aims to cover all 82 provinces in the country.

Among those present were Senior Deputy Speaker Aurelio Gonzales II, Deputy Majority Leader David Suarez, Majority Leader Manuel Jose Dalipe, House Minority Leader Marcelino Libanan, Representatives Jurdin Jesu Romualdo, Rodge Gutierrez, Janette Garin Erwin Tulfo, Daphne Lagon, Geraldine Roman, Ernix Dionisio, Joel Chua, Edvic G. Yap, Maria Carmen Zamora, Tsuyoshi Anthony Horibata, Miguel Luis Villafuerte, Ron Salo, Francisco Jose Matugas, Maria Rachel Arenas, Gerville Luistro, Jose Teves Jr., and others.

Also present were Basilan Gov. Hadjiman Sabbihi Hataman-Salliman, Sulu Gov. Abdusakur Mahail Tan, and various mayors.

“With this number of local and national officials witnessing how the BPSF truly serves the people, I will have no doubt that many more will join us in this very important endeavor. Sana sa susunod ay mas marami pa tayong maimbita dito sa BPSF,” Romualdez stressed.
