CITY OF MATI, DAVAO ORIENTAL— Leading gubernatorial candidate Nelson “Boy” Dayanghirang vows to steer the “champion province” of Davao Oriental to greater highs as he said he would continue and strengthen even more the legacy programs and projects of outgoing Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon.

Dayanghirang who is the incumbent Representative of Davao Oriental’s First District is being strongly endorsed by Governor Malanyaon to be her “best successor. All of the province’s eleven mayors and a large majority of barangay chairs here are backing Dayanghirang’s gubernatorial bid.

“I will continue and strengthen even more the meaningful legacy programs and projects of our outstanding Governor Cora Malanyaon that have truly helped the poor and made our province a champion province,” says Dayanghirang.

“I will definitely follow the footsteps of Governor Malanyaon because she is among the best prime movers of government programs and projects deemed worthy of emulation and recognition. She is being true to her sworn oath to serve the people who put her in power,” he adds.

He emphasized the importance of having “people of principles” in government. “If your heart is in the right place and you have good taste, not only will you pass muster in politics, you are destined to it especially if you have the capacity to understand realities on the ground and account the real needs and concerns of the people,” says Dayanghirang in an interview with Mati City-based journalists.

“The work begins with choosing the right and deserving leaders to hold the important posts in local government, followed by getting the people to actively participate in the programs for them to feel and multiply the benefits. And when that synergy is achieved, program institutionalization has to be ensured to protect the gains and insulate them from changing political currents. For me, the ingredients needed to craft government programs that respond to the urgent needs of the people are not hard to come by. They only need to be harnessed. The value of competent leadership cannot be overemphasized as from this well also springs the ability to galvanize the people into action. Meaningful participation of the people is a major factor behind the success of government programs. Without their support, even the most compelling vision will not have any hope of turning into a reality,” says Dayanghirang.

Dayanghirang says that under his administration, he would set the right examples for the ultimate objective of effecting a better provincial government— a more professionalized, energized, empowered and humanized bureaucracy so a positive working attitude will always be inculcated especially among employees of the provincial government. Dayanghirang stressed that if the provincial government could provide fast and honest service to the residents, tourists and investors, the local economy would improve and it would translate to improved living standards for the people.

Inspired by his focus on productivity and with his years of experience in planning and execution, Dayanghirang says that this early, he already have a “very clear” idea of what he ultimately wants to accomplish as governor of the province, and the specific ways of achieving his goals. His main goal would be the attainment of a time-bound and quantified targets for addressing poverty in its many dimensions – income poverty, hunger, disease, lack of adequate shelter and exclusion. And the rest would follow like the laying down of policies, provision of budget, execution of programs and projects, building of institutions, nurturing of partnerships, and mobilization of resources.
