DILG: Sustain road clearing beyond Sept. 29 deadline

first_imgILOILO City – Tomorrow, Sept. 29, isPresident Rodrigo Duterte’s deadline for local government units to reclaimpublic roads being used for private ends. However, according to the Departmentof Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region 6, road clearing operationsshould be sustained to ensure no obstructions would make a return to publicroads and sidewalks. “Kasiif iwanan ito ng mga local officials,ang tendency babalik itong mga na-clear natin.Ang mga sidewalk vendors, pag wala tayong monitoring, ang tendency magbagablik,” said Iglesia. DILG also reminded all city andmunicipal mayors that they have the power to discipline village chiefs who arenegligent or uncooperative in the clearing efforts. In a statement yesterday, DILG’scentral office in Metro Manila announced its teams will be visiting localgovernment units (LGUs) for an assessment of their compliance. “It doesn’t mean tapos na ang roadclearing after the deadline. This is a continuing responsibility of all thelocal officials down to the barangay level. Itotalaga ‘yung trabaho,” said Director Ariel Iglesia. He also reminded local officials toprohibit illegal parking on public roads.center_img In fact, said Iglesia, the President’sroad clearing order was just a reiteration of existing laws, rules andregulations that local government officials should have been enforcing. “Under the Local Government Code, youare the primary disciplining authority over your Punong Barangays, therefore,we urge you to utilize your powers – without fear or favor – whenever necessaryand make them accountable for their performance,” the DILG said./PN “Those who are found to benon-compliant will be issued show cause orders by (DILG) Secretary (Eduardo)Año before their names are submitted to the President,” according to the DILG. “We will form a team to validate theroad clearing after the deadline. Members will be from the Bureau of FireProtection, Philippine National Police, civil society organizations, and DILG,”said Iglesia.

Why I lost to Tyson Fury — Wilder

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Deontay Wilder has blamed his elaborate ringwalk outfit for his TKO defeat to Tyson Fury. Wilder, 34, suffered the first defeat of his professional career to Fury with ‘The Gypsy King’ dominating their WBC heavyweight championship contest before the towel was mercifully thrown in the seventh round. As part of an impressive set of ringwalks for both fighters, the American wore a costume made up of full body amour, a mask and a crown with LED lights around his eyes and chest, which weighed at least 40lbs. Speaking to Yahoo Sport, Wilder explained the outfit was a tribute to Black History Month, but admitted the excessive weight meant he “didn’t have the legs” for the fight. “He didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is my uniform was way too heavy for me,” Wilder said. “I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight. In the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through. “But I’m a warrior and people know that I’m a warrior. “A lot of people were telling me: ‘it looked like something was wrong with you.’ Something was, but when you’re in the ring you have to bluff a lot of things. I tried my best to do so. I knew I didn’t have the legs because of my uniform.” Wilder also confirmed he plans to trigger a rematch clause that will trigger a trilogy fight with new WBC champion Fury.Tags: Black History MonthDeontay WilderTyson Furylast_img read more
