Governor Teves: ‘Service as usual’

Despite facing some political and legal debacles as the “father” of Negros Oriental, Governor Henry Teves assured his constituents that he would ramain at his post and continue serving his province.

“It is ‘service as usual’ for I don’t want the people to be deprived the services they badly needed. That’s my sworn mandate as their governor,” Teves said.

The governor is facing a legal dispute from ex-governor Roel Degamo who wanted him to step down from his post in favor of him. The case is now at the Supreme Court.

Teves said that he would focus to one of his priority projects for now, the building of a modern hospital which would be equipped with state-of-art facilities.

“The government must look after the health of the residents, for healthy people could translate into a better economy,” said Teves.

Meantime, the incumbent governor reminded his supporters not to resort to any form of violence as they refused to leave the “Kapitolyo.”

“We must observe the rule of law,” Teves said as he also urged them to remain vigilant for the opposite camp’s possible action.
