In her acceptance speech, Malanyaon, who earlier bagged this year’s Seal of Good Local Governance Award from the Department of Interior and Local Government, says: “When I was elected as governor of the province of Davao Oriental eight and a half years ago, back in 2007, I knew then that the path I would take will be filled with challenges that would put to test my desire and commitment to serve my fellowmen, the best way I could. To me, it was the fulfillment of a vision that I have always nurtured of helping and seeing my province attain a degree of sustainable development that would harness the potentials of its God-given resources as well as the innate skills and abilities of its people. Indeed I was proven right. I encountered  numerous and varied development concerns ranging from health, malnutrition, education, peace and order, environment, agricultural productivity, infrastructure, disaster and risk management, governance and a lot more. Duty-bound, all these I have to confront head-on, but for me, always with passion. These same challenges presented opportunities which I seized, opportunities to introduce change, to innovate, to educate and capacitate, to build, to make things better, to empower, to make a difference, and to make Davao Oriental a better place to live in.”

“As I take stock of what I have done together with my people and partners for the three consecutive terms of service as governor which will soon end in a few months from now, I find fulfillment in the knowledge that I will be leaving behind a legacy of trailblazing accomplishments in various aspects which our people can also be proud of. We placed Davao Oriental in the global map having been recognized as host to a world heritage site, the Mount Hamiguitan Range and Wildlife Sanctuary. We rose from the devastation of super typhoon Pablo and even built better and stronger communities and municipalities. We significantly increased our agricultural productivity and garnered awards on agriculture and fisheries for several consecutive years. We established excellent health facilities especially for our poor constituents. We successfully embarked on peace and development efforts. We put in place tourism facilities and edifice to showcase the province’s natural beauties and cultural heritage. And more importantly, we instituted policies and mechanisms to serve as foundations for development and good governance. We have a shared vision and together with my people and partners, we worked in concert and as a team. I lead by inspiring and empowering people. It is therefore with pride and honor that I accept this Outstanding Governorship Award and recognition bestowed upon me by the Superbrands and to belong in the circle of best provincial government leaders in this country. I hope that we can share and disseminate our stories of leadership, of challenges and of successes. And for our stories to serve as models and inspire more. For indeed, the Philippines need more good leaders who will lead not just with their heads but with their hearts.” By Ferdinand Zuasola
