Mayor Ecija builds bridges of peace in IP communities through RCSP of AFP, PNP
Senator Ninoy Aquino, Sultan Kudarat — Mayor Randy Ecija Jr, Chairperson of the Task Force ECIJA-ELCAC, officially takes responsibility of the Retooled Community Service Program (RCSP) during the ceremonial send-off ceremony of the CSP team from the B Coy, 7IB.
Colonel Rommel Valencia, Commander of 7IB, listens to the message of the mayor that emphasizes on the importance of building bridges between the government and the people and of having leaders that listen with heart and soul.
PB Mamerto Parong, P/Capt Leonel Delasan, MLGOO Ricii Exiomo, the IPCR of the barangay, other barangay officials and sitio leaders stand witness to this momentous moment.
Unique in the municipality of Sen. Ninoy Aquino is the recruitment of volunteers from the Manobo-Dulangan tribe to assist the AFP and RCSP Core team during the immersion.
There is no better way of gaining the trust of the tribe than by employing their own as facilitators of the program. (BRUTUS McGUIRE via Mindanao Desk/Photo credit to Mayor Randy Ecija Jr.)
