Thousands expected
at anti-corruption day

Thousands of Negrenses are expected to participate in the celebration of International Anti-Corruption Day at the Panaad Sports Stadium in Bacolod City on Monday.

The participants will rally behind the belief that when there is no corruption there will be 100 percent  development,  based on President Benigno  Aquino’s “Kung Walang Corrupt, Walang Mahirap (If there are no corrupt, there  will be no poor)”  slogan, a Philippine Information Agency press release said. 

The program will be held simultaneously in all provinces in Region VI with Negros Occ. Gov. Alfredo Marañon  and Bacolod City Mayor Monico Puentevella leading the affair at the Panaad.

Ombudsman  Graft Investigation Officer Evangeline Nuñal said an integrity parade will start from 6 to 7 a.m. followed by the program proper until 9 a.m.

Speakers were invited to deliver messages on the theme integrity, transparency and accountability from the different sectors of the society, the press release said.

Marañon will represent the LGUs, Regional Vice President Dennis Mas of PhilHealth - national government agencies and Director Social Action Center-Diocese of Bacolod Rev. Fr. Ernie Larida - religious.

Other speakers are ‘Tuloy Pinoy Negros’ Mario Hechanova-NGO,  University of St. La Salle-Bacolod president  Bro. Reymundo Suplido - religious,  Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce  president Frank Carbon - Business,  Negros Press Club director  Nanette Guadalquiver – media,  and  Campus Integrity Crusader president  from Bato National High School, Sagay City, Sammy Tulod, representing the youth.

A ceremonial lighting of candles symbolizing unity,  and releasing of doves symbolizing peace will follow.*
