CdeO 1st District Congressman Benjo Benaldo personally turned over a farm tractor complete with implements for poor farmers for which City Mayor Vicente Y. Emano expressed his gratitude in front of the City Hall employees during this week’s flag raising ceremony.
“Bililhon kini kaayo ug dakong tabang sa atong mga kabus nga mag-uuma aron mosaka ang ilang kinitaan kay mapadali na man unya ang pagtanom ug pag-ani sa ilang mga abot sa pag-uma,” the mayor stated as he thanked Congressman Benaldo, who in the past few months have already turned over several units of hand tractors to the city.
In the same occasion, the Mayor also thanked Ating Koop Partylist Congressman Isidro Q. Lico after the latter turned over a multicab to the CdeO Farmers Federation and P100,000.00 assistance cheques each to the CDO Airport Multi-purpose Cooperative, CDO Truck Drivers and Operators Transport Cooperative, Gapo (Consolacion) Community Cooperative, and the Cooperative Bank of Misamis Oriental.
