Population Commission Region 7 Director Atty. Bruce N. Ragas and Mayor Felipe Antonio “Ipe” Remollo led this afternoon’s inauguration and blessing ceremony of the city’s youth corner where the young people can stay for recreation and to do research.
Mayor Remollo urged the youth to shun the vices and unwanted pregnancies to pursue a successful career for their future and of their families.
Atty. Ragas lauded the support of the city officials in establishing the youth corner, which is a first in the Central Visayas to be initiated by a Local Government Unit.
Councilor Lilani Ramon and City Population Officer Laume Ruth Quijote shared the rationale of the youth center to cater to the needs for information and recreation of the young people with the objective of combating the problem of teenage unwanted pregnancy and other vices. Donors are welcome to equip the corner with more books, reading materials and other appliances.
City Councilors Michael Bandal, Alan Gel Cordova, Estanislao Alviola, Karissa Tolentino, Manuel Arbon and Agustin Miguel Perdices joined the department heads led by City Administrator Ricardo Gonzales Jr. along with members of the Youth Leadership for Development during the simple ceremony.
