    At Kalivungan Festival, VP Leni calls on Cotabateños to stand together amid adversity

    Office of the Vice President September 1, 2017 Vice President Leni Robredo on Friday reiterated the importance of standing together in the midst of adversities, as she joined residents of North Cotabato in their annual Kalivungan Festival and the 103rd Araw ng Cotabato. In her message, VP Leni noted that the festival, now on its seventh year, is a celebration of the province emerging from trials and hardships through the collective action of its people. She said the stories of bravery, sacrifices, and hope celebrated by Cotabateños in the festival are a timely reminder, not only for the province’s residents, but for the Filipino people, amid the rise of divisiveness in the country. “Ano po ba ang gustong sabihin ng Kalivungan? Pagtitipon, ‘di po ba? At iyon iyong tema dapat natin dito sa ating bansa ngayon,” she said at the culmination program in Kidapawan City. “Mahirap ang sitwasyon, hindi lang po sa Pilipinas, pero sa buong mundo. Napakaraming mga problemang pinagdadaanan. Kaya ang selebrasyon ngayong umaga, pinapaalala[hanan] tayo na kahit napakaraming problema, hindi tayo iyong magkakaaway. Tayo iyong magkakampi.” “Kaya po itong festival ninyo ngayon… pagpaalala hindi lang po sa mga taga-North Cotabato, pero pagpaalala sa lahat na Pilipino na ito iyong panahon na dapat tayong nagkakaisa. Ito iyong panahon na dapat maalala natin na tayo iyong magkakakampi, at iyong lalabanan natin iyong kahirapan. Ang lalabanan natin, iyong lahat ng problema na naghahamon sa ating katahimikan,” she added. “[P]ag-alala din ito sa kagalingan ng bawat isa sa atin, na sa gitna ng mga kahirapan, sa gitna ng maraming pagsubok, basta tayo ay nagkakaisa, lahat ng imposible, puwedeng maging posible,” she went on. VP Leni also praised the provincial government of North Cotabato, led by Governor Lala Taliño-Mendoza, for the progress she has seen since her previous visits to the city in the past two years. “[V]ery impressive,” she said. “[N]gayong pagbalik ko, parang sandali pa lang akong nawala, ang dami nang pagbabago. Noong sinabi ko kay Gov na, ‘Gov, parang marami akong napansin na pagbabago,’ lalo akong namangha kasi sabi niya halos lahat iyon local funds.” “So kapag ganoon kasi, kapag may capacity iyong local government gumastos para sa sariling pangangailangan, iyon iyong testament na mabuti iyong pamamalakad. Marami man na problema, hindi naman iyon nawawala, pero mahalaga na natutugunan iyong pangangailangan,” she added.
