STATEMENT RE MARAWI SITUATION
FROM CDO MAYOR OSCAR MORENO
Chairman, Regional Peace & Order Council X

I have talked to PSSupt Bahian, our COCPO Head. I have also discussed the matter with Vice Mayor Kikang Uy, Councilor Romy Calizo (who is also my Focal Person on Peace, Security & Development) & Col Mario Verner Monsanto (of our CDRRM). Gen Calizo also helps me with my RPOC duties, & is in close coordination with 4ID Officialdom, led by BGen Benjie Madrigal.

Our security agencies are on full alert, both in Region X & in CDO. Checkpoints in key strategic areas are in place, & we are closely following the Marawi situation. Patrols are being made around the clock. I call upon our people to remain calm, but at the same time be always vigilant & observant. I urge our barangay officials & leaders to closely oversee their respective barangays, & immediately report any unusual activities. To our brethrens in Marawi & neighboring communities, I call for restraint & faithful adherence to peace. Let us not divert from the road of peace & development

Higalaay Festival (City Fiesta)

higalaay
Cagayan de Oro's annual fiesta celebration, popularly known as Higalaay Festival, is a week-long festivity filled with a series of colorful, culturally-rich and fun-filled core events that culminate on the 28th of August , the feast day of the city's patron saint, St. Augustine.

The celebration has grown not only as the customary day of thanksgiving but also as a rallying point for a campaign to promote Cagayan de Oro City and the surrounding areas globally as an investment and tourism destination.
