TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Feb. 12 (PIA)--The Provincial Government of Bohol lead the activities in the observance of Provincial Day of Peace yesterday held at Pres. Carlos P. Garcia Park in Tagbilaran City.

The activity was intended to revive the peace in the province anchored on the Boholano values of fear in God and abiding by laws as articulated by the late Boholano former President Carlos P. Garcia.

Also commemorated yesterday was the declaration of the province as insurgency-free by the Philippine National Police (PNP) way back 2010.

A motorcade was participated by the offices of the Provincial Capitol at 2:30 p.m. yesterday. 

A program followed wherein the provincial officials led by Gov. Edgar Chatto, Vice-Gov. Concepcion Lim and 1st District Rep. Rene Relampagos unveiled the Peace Monument and officially declared every February 11 as a Provincial Day of Peace.
Other guests include Sec. Teresita Quintos-Deles of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process (OPAPP), newly appointed Director of the National Bureau of Investigation Boholano Atty. Virgilio Mendez, Commission on Human Rights Chairperson Loretta Ann Rosales, Boholano and staunch peace advocate Dr. Jose Abueva, Gen. Emmanuel Bautista of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, AFP Deputy Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Allan Luga, and PNP Regional Director PSSupt. Dennis Agustin.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Bohol recently passed Resolution No. 2014-055 declaring February 11, 2014 as Provincial Peace Day in the Province in Bohol.

The basis for such declaration is the attainment of the province’s well-defined ultimate direction anchored on a prime eco-cultural tourism destination and a strong balanced agro-industrial province with a well-educated, God-loving and law-abiding citizenry; proud of their cultural heritage; enjoying a state of well-being; and committed to sound environmental management.

The activity also formally launched the advocacy for a NonKilling Boholano Society, the country’s first provincial organization in our national movement for a Nonkilling Philippines. 

The province of Bohol is leading the nation in its commitment to peace and nonkilling and is consistent with its official national recognition as “The Best Governed Province” in the Philippines, under Gov. Chatto. (PIA7-Bohol/ECB)
