PIA Press Release

Kalinga gov seeks peace thru sports program

by GG Dumallig

Tabuk City (24 October) -- With the theme, ‘Unity in Diversity Through Sports,' Kalinga Governor Floydelia R. Diasen initiated the first Governor's Cup inter-municipality and inter-agency sports fest competition in the province launched last October 10.

In her keynote speech, Diasen said that the sports fest aspires to "promote peace, unity, camaraderie between and among employees from the different local government units and agencies in the province."

She said that the sports fest is a way for the government employees to be a "role-model" for the people to unite around 60 sub-cultural communities in the province which she described a factor that "sometimes caused conflicts" threatening peace in the Kalinga community.

"Through this Governor's Cup, we could show our people that behind our cultural diversity, is peace and unity (achieved) through sports," she told the participants.

The sports fest is one of the efforts to promote lasting peace in the province.

She also said that parallel with the Governor's Cup, the Provincial Government through a Special Ad-hoc Committee has spearheaded Municipal Peace Consultations in the province to gather data on issues, concerns, recommendations and solutions from the different municipalities.

All outputs she said will be collated for presentation during the province-wide consultation on November 2009 as a basis for the formulation of the province's peace and order program.

"The result of the province-wide consultation will serve as a blueprint to be followed by all stakeholders for our peace and order agenda and hopefully will contribute in the realization of our common dream for peace," she said.

The province will also hold a Peace March this November to show her administration's determination "to let peace reign in our communities." (PIA Kalinga) [top]
