BAYUGAN City--Senator JV Ejercito said the much awaited multi-billion pesos Mindanao Railway Network project, which implementation starts next year would surely benefit villagers in the far-flung areas of this province.
The pro administration lawmaker made this assurance during his recent visit to Barangay Sto. Niño of this city , a far-flung mountain village, with the invitation of Governor Adolph Edward Plaza to celebrate the festivities of the residents.
“I am very glad and elated to learn that I am the first Senator to visit Barangay Sto. Nino here in Bayugan City. With the construction of the Mindanao railway system, the least benefited citizen here will have the opportunity to develop because it will be much easier to transport your products from one point in Mindanao to another point riding on a train,” Ejercito said.
With the realization of the railway system, Sen. Ejercito said income of the people will improve while poverty will be eradicated. “When this time comes, there will be color of peace in Mindanao,” he added.
The senator from San Juan City who chairs the Senate Committee on Health visited the province to personally see the newly constructed buildings of D.O. Plaza Memorial Hospital located within the government center complex of the Provincial Capitol in Prosperidad town.
He vowed to do his best to provide hospital facilities that are lacking at the DOPMH upon his return to his office in Manila.
“I am here to see for myself what we can do for Mindanao, Agusan del Sur and Bayugan City. We will make it sure that these places will be genuinely developed whatever we can do in order to deliver the best government services specially on health,” Sen. Ejercito said.
While listening to the message of the senator, Gov. Plaza’s attention was caught by plenty of children around the vicinity.
Being an advocate of family planning, the governor advised parents to control their overflowing love for each other and suggested that there should only two children per couple to ensure they have enough food for their normal growth while assured of brighter future through good education.
