PIA Caragas Power FM joins advocacy for corrupt-free Philippines

BUTUAN CITY, September 4 (PIA) – The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga’s radio station 107.8 Power FM has joined the people’s clamor for the condemnation of pork barrel scam and for a corrupt-free Philippines by playing its anti-corruption advocacy plug regularly.

“We will continue to regularly play Jograd’s ‘Kawatan’ (theft) song, a music originally performed by Jessie J (Price Tag), until everybody will heed the call against graft and corruption,”  PIA-Caraga regional director Abner Caga said.

“This is to show that we support the plight of the majority of the Filipino people against the pork barrel scam. We hope that by playing the song, everybody will support and participate for a corrupt-free Philippines, this is the least that we can do,” he added.

The ‘Kawatan’ song can be heard hourly over Power FM and its online streaming via http://www.powerfmbxu.caster.fm and http://www.powerfmbxu.listen2myradio.com. (PIA-Caraga)


DAR Caraga chief lauds groups' environmental protection efforts to save Mount Mayapay

BUTUAN CITY, September 4 (PIA) - The environmental protection efforts for the protection and preservation of Mount Mayapay under the Samahang Magdalo and Philippine Information Agency (PIA-13) continue drawing accolade, the latest of which came from Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Caraga regional director Faisar Mambuay.

Mambuay said the environmental efforts of these groups should be emulated.

"We, in the agency are fully aware that the environmental consequence of Mount Mayapay, the city's natural heritage, if not being conserve will result to drastic effects to our Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) -- to our farmers. We also would like to do our part," he said.

Mambuay then vowed to collaborate in the conservation effort and committed to facilitate and spread the sound information to the Agrarian Reform Communities surrounding the city's natural landmark.

"We will do this not just for us but also to our future generations. Hoping that someday, as example will help pave way to attain the universal goal of saving Mt. Mayapay," Mambuay said. (PIA-Caraga)
