KITCHARAO, Agusan del Norte, Feb. 2 -- The 29th Infantry (Matatag Fighters) Battalion (29IB) together with the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA) recently launched the Executive Order (EO) 70 Information Caravan.
NICA 10 and 13 Regional Director Manuel M. Orduña led the information caravan at the Municipal Building of Kitcharao, Agusan del Norte. “Ito na ang pinakamalaking programa ng gobyerno, ang EO 70. Ang Ending the Local Communist Armed Conflict. Itong problema natin na ito ang humila sa atin pababa. Ang gusto po ng presidente matapos ang Local Communist Armed Conflict na ito habang siya pa ang presidente,” Orduña said.
The information drive was attended by barangay captains, Sangguniang Kabataan representatives,Sangguniang Bayan members, businessmen and members of the Kitcharao Municipal Police Station.
Mayor Aristotle M. Montante, Kitcharao’s Municipal Mayor, requested to initiate the caravan to support his municipalities’ effort in the information campaign. The goal of the information caravan was not just to orient the public but also to remind the stakeholders and agencies of their respective roles in the said campaign. The main topic covered was the EO 70, although the Anti-Terror Law and Resource Control were also discussed.
“Akong mainiton nga pagwelcome ug pagpasalamat sa inyong pagtambong. Kani nga information caravan mao ning atong pagsupporta sa E.O. 70 kinahanglan sad ni nato kay kita man ang mga frontliners diri sa atong lungsod (I warmly welcome and thank you for attending. This information caravan is what we need in support of E.O. 70 because we are the frontliners here in our town)," said Mayor Montante.
“This is the biggest program of the government, the EO70. Ending the Local Communist Armed Conflict. This is the problem that is pulling us down. What the President wants is to end this Local Communist Armed Conflict while he is still the President,” said Orduña.
According to Lt. Col Aristotle Antonio, Acting Commanding Officer of 29IB, they are in the area because they want to let them know what EO 70 NTF-ELCAC is. "Because the public has not been informed. For over 52 years, the Philippine government has been destroyed by Communist ideology. The Communist Terrorists or the CPP-NPA, so it is important that each of us knows about this program. It is important so that we won’t be deceived by the propagandas of this communist-terrorist group," he said.
It can be recalled that EO No. 70, series of 2018, entitled “Institutionalizing the Whole-of-Nation Approach in Attaining Inclusive and Sustainable Peace, Creating a National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict, and Directing the Adoption of a National Peace Framework” was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on December 4, 2018. The order aims to address “the root causes of insurgencies, internal disturbances, tensions and other armed conflicts and threats by prioritizing and harmonizing the delivery of basic services and social development packages, facilitating societal inclusivity, and ensuring active participation of all sectors of the society in the pursuit of the country’s peace agenda.” (1Lt.
