CITY OF MALOLOS - Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado led the simultaneous oath taking ceremony of the newly elected barangay captains and councilors of the 569 barangays in the province held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city today.

The oath taking was divided into two parts wherein officials from Districts 1 and 2 swore in the morning and were witnessed by Herminio "Bobbit" Diño from the Office of the Undersecretary for Barangay Affairs, who represented Department of the Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Martin Diño as the guest of honor, while officials from Districts 3 and 4 took their oath in the afternoon and was witnessed by the guest speaker, Department of Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra.

In his opening remarks, Vice Gov. Daniel R. Fernando gave some pieces of advice to the next barangay leaders.

"Higit sa posisyon, ang pagiging isang iniluklok sa pwesto ay nasusukat sa ating determinasyon at pagsisikap na pangunahan ang ating mga pamayanan patungo sa katiwasayan at pagbabago para sa kapakanan ng mga Bulakenyo na nakatakda nating pagsilbihan. Kailangan nating ialay ang ating sarili, ang ating oras at ang ating talino't lakas para sa interes ng nakarami," Fernando said.

Alvarado on the other hand said to the officials that they should treat their post as a sacred responsibility.

"Sa inyong panunumpa sa tungkulin ay inyong isapuso at isabuhay ang bawat salita ng inyong panunumpa at isantabi ang pansariling interes na maaaring humadlang sa pagtaguyod ng mga dakilang layuning pinagsusumikapan nating lahat," the governor said.

Meanwhile, Diño lauded the Kalinisan at Kaayusan ng Kapaligiran sa Barangay project of the province of Bulacan and advise the Bulakenyos to continue the good start. He also reminded those who took their oath of service about having the purest intentions in serving the public.

"Inaasahan po tayong lahat ng pamahalaan sa pangunguna po ng ating pangulo, Presidente Rodrigo Duterte, na ang inyong pagsisilbi sa ating bayan, ang gagawin ninyong paglilingkod sa loob ng panahon ng inyong panunungkulan ay hindi babahiran ng anumang kapinsalaan at hindi babahiran ng anumang kahit anong masamang intensyon," Diño said.

Moreover, Guevarra stressed the important role of public servants in the barangays.

"Ang inyong papel nagagampanan sa ating lipunan at sa kinabukasan ng ating mamamayan ay tunay na 'di matatawaran magmula ngayon. Ang halaga ng inyong panunungkulan ay titimbangin ayon sa kabutihang maidudulot nito sa lahat ng umaasa sa inyo," the secretary said.

Also part of the program was the ceremonial distribution of Collapsed Structure Search and Rescue Hand tools by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to better prepare the barangays in times of emergencies.

All barangays will receive the same hand tools at a scheduled date once they completed the one day seminar on water flow and be knowledgeable on how to use the said tools.
