INTERIOR and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno hailed local government initiatives here and candidly admitted Bohol should teach the department about how it is done in Bohol.

In his visit to witness the signing of pledge of commitment between the Republic of the Philippines through the DILG, Bohol Provincial Government and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Sec. Puno said he pays tribute to Bohol for dramatically moving from rock bottom to halfway to the richest of the provinces.

He called the LGSP LED as essentially what the department is teaching the Filipinos after the government ahs put up the institutional reforms to capacitate local governments of their devolved powers and their inherent corporate powers according to the local government code.

The LGSP LED in would be implemented in the Bohol Integrated Area Development Cluster 5 and would be piloted for interior towns in enhancing governance and stakeholder capacity and in local agri-eco-tourism development.

Over this, he thanks the CIDA for believing and recognizing the promise of Bohol.

Admitting as a hardcore local government empowerment advocate himself, he told the members of the Provincial Development Council. Peace and Order Council, Sangguniang Panlalawigan, League of Municipalities of the Philippines, Vice Mayor’s League Bohol Chapter and Association of Barangay Councils on a joint meeting that he had goose-bumps when he heard local leaders addressing in the parlance of professionals relishing the full empowered language of the local government’s corporate entity.

At the packed Dagohoy Hall of the Bohol Tropics Resort, Sec. Puno also noticed that Bohol has really gone so much since the enactment of the local government code.

He heaped praises for Bohol and capped it by urging local officials to make the national government realize that development must really start at the local levels.

For Boholanos, he said “whatever you are doing, keep doing it because it is working. (PIA)
