After visiting Naga City and the towns of Tinambac and Calabanga in Camarines Sur, President Benigno S. Aquino III’s last stop was in the municipality of Libmanan to meet with Camarines Sur 2nd District local government leaders and residents.
The President reported successful government social service programs such as the country’s rice self-sufficiency before the end of 2013, the construction of 66,800 additional classroom buildings all over the country and the 3.9 million beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in which an estimate of 108,000 recipients belong to the CamSur province.
He also mentioned the P30 million budget allocation for the reconstruction of Sabang and San Vicente ports, the rehabilitation of Naga-Legaspi Commuter Train Service that will benefit almost 2,200 commuters every day and the restoration of the airport in Daraga, Albay.
President Aquino told the Bicolano voters of CamSur District 2 that the bright future of their province and the whole country are in their hands on May 13. He added that success and development will continue only if the right leaders will be the partners of his administration. In local dialect, the President stated, “Dai kayang negaran: Sa lambang Pilipino man guiraray naghahali ang kusog kan pagbabago. Ipagdagos ta an napunan tang laban. Tara na asin isulong ta ang matanos na dalan paduman sa dakulang kauswagan digdi sa Camarines Sur asin sa bilog na nasyon.” (Hindi magbabago: Sa bawat Pilipino pa rin manggagaling ang lakas ng pagbabago. Ituloy natin ang nasimulan nating laban. Tara na’t isulong ang tuwid na daan tungo sa malawakang kaunlaran sa Camarines Sur, at sa buong bansa.)
President Aquino was joined by Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas.
