Butuan village declares CNTs persona non-grata

By 1Lt Nonette B Banggad

CABADBARAN CITY, Agusan del Norte, May 10 – The barangay council of Anticala in Butuan City recently approved Resolution no. 030 series of 2019 declaring the members of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples Army (CPP-NPA) terrorist persona non-grata in their barangay premises during the barangay council session on April 24, 2019.

Two weeks after the signing of the resolution, Barangay Chairman Antonio Masamayor Masamayor explained the content of the approved resolution to his constituents during the special general assembly meeting on May 6, 2019.

In response to the call of their barangay leaders, more or less 70 purok leaders of the barangay including Datu Pandugukan Diomedes A. Guinsod, Indigenous Peoples Mandatory Representative of Manobo tribe supported the implementation by doing the symbolic signing of the resolution.

“Kauban sa akong mga katribu ug katigulangan, akong gipadayag akong suporta sa mga lakang nga gibuhat sa atong mga opisyales niining barangay nga maoy maka pabag-o gikan sa dili maayu nga imahe. Ato silang suportahan sa walay pag duha-duha (We, the Manobo tribe and the elderly strongly support the move of the barangay officials. Let us support them all the way)," said Datu Guinsod.

“As the second barangay in Butuan City to declare CNTs as persona non-grata, I hope that more barangays will finally recognize the need to take similar actions against the terrorists and join our campaign to completely eradicate the communist armed conflict in the whole Agusan del Norte,” said Lt. Col. Isagani O Criste, 29IB Commanding Officer. (CMO Officer, 29IB PA/PIA Agusan del Norte)
