The mayor of Cebu City credits the NTF-ELCAC with keeping the insurgency at bay.

CEBU CITY, Philippines – Mayor Michael Rama lauded the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) for delivering government services to the people’s doorsteps and keeping insurgency at bay on Tuesday.

He noted the post-Typhoon Odette reaction as an excellent example of delivering relief directly to the people.

“Instead of individuals going to City Hall, teams from every department have been dispatched to deliver monetary aid and rice subsidies to our constituents.” We provided chainsaws and generators to our mountain barangays, giving them the tools they need to begin their own road to recovery,” Rama said in a statement.

He claimed that the city government’s efforts to improve upland communities’ roads, open additional farm-to-market roads, and provide farmers with facilities to sell their commodities helped to alleviate their predicament.

“These are modest peace projects that we, in local administration, can contribute by helping our people feel and experience for themselves that government exists to serve them, to cater to their needs,” he explained.

On Monday, Rama, who chairs the Regional Peace and Order Council, attended an online meeting of the NTF-ELCAC.

Representatives from Joint Regional Task Forces (JRTF) attended the virtual meeting, where they discussed the successes and failures in 2018, as well as the “road forward.”

He believes that public officials should return to the principles of public service while planning the country’s future orientation in order to address the country’s decades-old insurgency problem.

Rama expressed hope that the government’s objective “may result in more relevant and meaningful initiatives borne from love, those that matter to the most susceptible to any armed conflict” as part of the NTF-endeavor ELCAC’s to examine measures conducted over the previous four years beginning in 2018.
