Bam­bie to ben­e­fi­cia­ries: Keep your land

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories - By Al­wen Salir­ing

Misamis Ori­en­tal Gover­nor Yevgeny Emano has warned farmer ben­e­fi­cia­ries in the prov­ince not to trade the land given by Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte dur­ing his visit in the city early this month.

Emano said nearly 300 hectares of land were awarded to some 241 farm­ers in the prov­ince.

Duterte per­son­ally handed out the Cer­tifi­cate of Land Own­er­ship Award (CLOA) to some 3,400 re­cip­i­ents in North­ern Min­danao cov­er­ing 5,808 hectares at a uni­ver­sity gym­na­sium here.

The gover­nor re­minds the ben­e­fi­cia­ries to value the land and make use of it ap­pro­pri­ately.

“Dakong kaayuhan ang naghu­lat sa mga benepisyaryo ning luna nga ilang nadawat kung hata­gan lamang gayud nila og bili hi­l­abina kung tikaran ug tam­nan kini sa binhi nga mota­bang sa kri­sis sa bugas-hu­may, bugas-mais, utanon ug lagut­mon,”Emano said.

Among those who will ben­e­fit the land ti­tles given by the pres­i­dent are the for­mer com­mu­nist rebels who re­turned to the folds

of the law and who have formed them­selves into Tag­pako Farm­ers Co­op­er­a­tive in Gin­goog City.

Agrar­ian de­part­ment of­fi­cials have ear­lier said that the CLOA can­not be eas­ily traded and once farm­ers do so, the gov­ern­ment will take it back and give it to those who needed it the most. Al­wen Salir­ing
