BANGUED, Abra—Gov. Eustaquio “Takit” Bersamin who is serving his last term as chief executive of his province said in his inaugural speech that he is devoting his third term in office to reducing poverty in Abra.
During his speech on Friday, Bersamin said his victory was also the victory of the people of Abra whose right to suffrage was protected during the last elections because “even Abrenio politicians speak the language of dignity, and most especially fortitude, in the name of peace in the province.”
He said poverty has spawned other societal ills in the province, most especially violence and the culture of lawlessness.
Economic development, Bersamin said, is a daunting job which the Office of the Governor and even the whole provincial government of Abra cannot undertake on its own. He asked all government office heads, including the province’s 27 mayors, to support the “total change in the nature and perception of the province.”
“We desperately need your support and cooperation. We will develop a better framework for interagency cooperation in the province, because economic development is a gargantuan task and inevitably requires heavy investment and the coordination of our efforts and resources.
Genuine partnership and collaboration shall be the new language of our operations in the next three years,” the governor said.
Lugmok tau sa utang panu nya gawin yan, dapat aim nya ung makaalis tau sa top 20 poorest province. Ung ibang province ung 700m loan ni takit e hninge lng ng ibang province ganun sana pulitikal leaders natin.
Economic development is not a gargantuan task. You just use the government money where they were intended to be and you can no longer say that poverty is indeed not impossible to eradicate especially if you have the real godly courage to bite the bullet of economic and political change. But of course your subordinates especially the Mayors are your big headaches for they were already used to corruption and you don’t know where to start in convincing them. Are you now willing to sacrifice everything by using iron fist if diplomatic approach is futile to their level of intelligence? If so, ngayon pa lang ay sinasaluduhan na kita Sir dahil ikaw na nga ang pinakahihintay ng buong Abra.
Our nationwide population is around 100 million. Our yearly foreign economic, military, (etc.) aids is not only 100 million dollars. Multiply this to 40 and the product is not only 100 million or 1 million pesos for every Filipino. Yong mga inuutang pa natin sa diff. countries not to mention their aids or grants. These amount are all more than enough to alleviate us from poverty but puro kayo sinungaling, matataas ang mga pinag-aralan ninyo at dapat turuan ninyo kami kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng “Respect and Dignity” pero pinili ninyo pa rin kahiya-hiya sa mata ng mga taga ibang-bansa. Sa tingin tuloy nila sa bawat Filipino saan ka man naroon all over the world ay dishonest, thief, etc. Sana kung katulad lang ninyo si Pres. Aquino and still some straight politicians, sana hindi na mahirap intindihin pa kung mahirap ba talaga mabura ang kahirapan. Sa mga likod nito, hindi pa rin kami nawawalan ng pag-asa baka ikaw na nga Gob. at hindi na kailangan maghintay na naman ng tatlong taon. Good Luck…!!!

fight poverty sa salita, pero sa totoo lang walang pakialam yan sa mga taga abra ang priority nya family, relatives and friends, kaya nga siya nangutang ng nangutang para sa kanyang pamilya at mga kaibigan.
It’s his third term and yet he’s still talking about gargantuan task. The governor has all the budget that can turn Abra economy around but the money is only for the few. Yes relatives and friends. He is focusing on infrastructure since it’s where the big kickbacks is and not to mention he himself is acting as the contractor of every single provincial project. ano ba yan Abra.
his statements are too general. walang laman. Even a grade 3 student can say what he said. puro empty promise pa rin.
The governor is no saint. Marami rin pagkukukulang, tulad natin. But I still believe he different from the others. He had accomplishments for the common good – roads, bridges, hospitals, equipment s for farmers, programs for the needy. Hindi tulad ng iba na gasolihan, hotels, luxury cars, PAGS, mansions, pag totolerate sa mga mayors na magkoracot.
Siguro sa commissions sa project, tama nga, peru maraming naming pumopunta na humihingi ng tulong lalo natin mahihirap. Dahil dito at sa nasabing mga accomplishments AT HINDI IPINAGKAKATIWALA SA MGA GAHAMAN /rawet MAYORS ang mga projects, si Gov. Takit ay LAGING OVERWHELMING ANG PANALO!
The gov. Promise to devote his 3 years to alleviate the horrible flight of the poor. Let us not only see him if he could do it. Let us include in our prayers that God guide him and bless him the strength, the will power to achieve his goal.
I know he is trying hard to do righteous and honorable but the temptation of darkness is always there, true also to all of us, but if we pray sincerely, the devil has no power to destroy us. Prayer is the best weapon against the power of darkness. I also suggest,( hopefully the gov. Is reading our forum) that he will try to seek Devine guidance by reading God’s Word, the Bible often- the only true Book for righteousness and guidance . Better still, he will request church leaders/pastors for Bible study instead of using his leisure, his precious time with his roasters. With spiritual activity, I guaranty, HE WILL GRADUALLY FIND STERLING PEACE OF MIND, LOVE AND JOY.
In my study and observation ung gumagamit ng name ng panginoon when they were accused of wrong doings are probably guilty. mayor sanches, jalosjos, even vicsyd nagsapata sa harap ng isang natalng mayor na inusente sya.and the most prominent is abalos.
Poverty Alleviation!!! Be careful, we’re getting into some murky waters here.We’ll see, but give him a chance, though
With all due respect to Gov. Takit, it is not poverty that has spawned societal ills like violence and lawlessness. As clear as daylight, it is the politics of greed and plunder that has spawned the ills of society and poverty is the biggest of them all. You only have to take note of the ill-gotten wealth amassed by our government officials and there is no denying the fact that progress has indeed come to Abra, not for the long-suffering Abrenos but for those with insatiable greed. As the father of the province, you can lead by example. You can make mayors and department heads toe the line if you possess the moral ascendancy. The people of Abra will stand four square behind you if you tread the straight and narrow path. You can start by making transparency the order of the day in governance. Six years have gone by and the Abrenos are still waiting. Listen to the whisper of the hopeless, the plea of the forgotten and the cry of the anguished. You have the power to pick the provincial director of the PNP and therefore you can stop violence and lawlessness. The problems of violence and lawlessness come primarily from politicians who act and behave like gangsters. There is no place in a civilized world for these animals. It is time to essay your role as the father of the province. Stop acting like the proverbial monkey, “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” whenever your allies are involved in shenanigans and atrocities. Remember, no one is above the law. These are the last three years of your term as governor and you must be in legacy mode. Do everything in your power to make a difference in the lives of Abrenos so that they will have something pleasant to remember you by. Most important of all, when the last three years are over, retire from politics. No family has the monopoly of wisdom in governance. You can show all other political families by your example that power is not the be all and end all of life. Power does not last forever.
U got it right pedro, pinagyayabang ng governor na d sya criminal at violenteng tao peru hnahayaan nyang namamatay mga weak abrenian na dapat sya ang mg ptangol regardles kung ally man nya o hnde. As i said he let these violence tn happen to cover up hs corupt practices.
Exactly. Nalaing nga agtakaw…
given dytan ti pulitiko nga agtakaw am concerned sa peace and order campaign nya. the pnp is undr him but uses only for those politicians critical to him but he let ordinary and weak abrenians to be killed and oppresed by his allies
Hmmm, I guess the gov is thinking of doing a “Robin Hood”. Takaw then ibunongna takawna kadaguiti marigrigat. Good a no kasta!
You must be dreaming. Takit giving his money? Ruby giving her money? They spend their money not for the poor but for flaunting to their friends and relatives. Sa Pilipinas, sikat ka pag mayaman ka. Mas sikat ka pa pag yung yaman mo galing sa nakaw.
Tienen, apo takit! Kunam la deta a ta maudi nga termmom nga gob. No dika ket agridam a ket baka paltingatendaka daguita valera ken bernos.
so be it as long ung papalit e kaya nya ikuntrol ang abra. dapat mgresign na lng c takit at bka may bayag pa c chari b.
Husto unay tay kuna ni P.A., “it is not poverty that has spawned societal ills like violence and lawlessness” in Abra. Gob. dumngegka, pagtalnaem (linak ken kapia) ti Abra, ket sumayaat ti kabibiag ti umili. Apay? Umado ti mayat nga umay agnaed, agnegosyo, ken rumsua dagitay adda utekna nga rumaman iti politika ket mapasayaat ti pannagna ti goyerno iti Abra (il-ili). Saan ket nga dagitay Ma-mayor (para de los buenos) iti nadumaduma nga ili nga ti la agtakaw (agibulsa) ti IRA ken pondo nga madawatda nga proyekto kadagitay sumangka-utro nga kunniber nga Diputada.
Kasano ti panangpatalnam ti Abra? Bugtakem dagita Polis ken Mamayor, kaduam man wenno saan ta no adda aramidda nga dakes, “idarummo” ida. Saanka nga agbutbuteng, adda ka la ketdi iti “linteg”, adu ti mangsuportar kenka. . .
tama ka genti ever since i became a blogger here i always blamed the governor for t.he breakdown of peace and order. i hope he cld cnsider ur sugestions.he shld nt selective in prosecuting erring mayors and other govt oficials.
No awan maaramidan ni gov.ta suggestion mo Genti ket agpayso diay kunkunada nga wan lategna! Saan la nga under de saya bading pay ta bungangera! ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS ‘ your honor’
tama sina genti, eric shawn at ama lakay.i like their comments..
