ILIGAN CITY (PIA) — The unity of stakeholders and agencies has strengthened the implementation of the whole-of-nation approach program, according to 2nd Mechanized Infantry “Magbalantay” Brigade commander Col. Rey Alemania during Communications Secretary Martin Andanar’s CORDS X podcast Saturday, September 4.

“Through our Task Force ELCAC [End Local Communist Armed Conflict] , PPOC [Provincial Peace and Order Council], ang tanan ahensiya sa gobyerno, opisina galihok sa usa ka objective na atong maaddress tanang problema na ginagamit sa atong mga rebelde na ilang pangontra sa atong programa sa gobyerno,” said Alemania.

[Through our Task Force ELCAC, PPOC, all government agencies, offices work with the main objective to address all the problems that our rebels use in opposing our government program.]

Alemania said that with this collaboration among agencies and stakeholders, they can now easily reach out to people in nook barangays and far-flung areas to show them the different services of the government.

The Magbalantay Brigade commander also noted the well-established system and coordination among partners to attain the objectives in ending the insurgency.

“Ang program nato sa whole-of-nation approach after several years na gisugdan nato ni, established na kaayo ang sistema sa atong stakeholders, LGUs, government agencies, AFP, PNP, apil na ang NGOs, CSOS, diri sa among area. Maayo na ang among coordination sa pagbuhat sa mga objective programs para mapadayon ang pagkahuman aning insurhensiya na atong ginaatubang,” he said.

[Our whole-of-nation approach program, after several years that we started, the system is well established with our stakeholders, LGUs, government agencies, AFP, PNP, including NGOs, CSOS, here in our area. We have good coordination to implement objective programs to continue ending this insurgency that we are facing.] 

Alemania extended gratitude to the stakeholders for trusting the military as a partner in peacebuilding. He said their role has expanded since they are not just concentrated in military operations but also in peacebuilding activities.

He emphasized that the whole-of-nation approach is the key solution in addressing the problems in the community. He also urged the agencies and organizations to continue moving forward in supporting the ELCAC programs.

“Ang atong whole-of-nation approach through our Task Force , PPOC, RPOC, makit-an na ang atong paningkamot na usa lang ug makita na nato ang atong soluyson, na usa ra ang atong lenggwahe para sa kasulbaran sa problema sa atong communties. Ipadayon nato kay mao na jud ni ang saktong nga dalan na atong lakawan,” he said.

[Our whole-of-nation approach through our Task Force, PPOC, RPOC, we can see that our effort is one and we can now see our solution, that we should have a common language for solving the problem of our communities. We should continue this because this is the right path for us to take.] (LELA/ PIA Lanao del Norte)
