Davao del Norte Provincial Governor Edwin “Kuya Gob” Jubahib proudly shares about one of his administration’s landmark project, DavNor KAAGAPAY, during an interview with GAHI NI BAI at the Davao del Norte Investment and Promotion Center (DNIPC) just recently.
GAHI NI BAI is a popular block timer program in a local station in Cagayan de Oro City. It is hosted by former ABS-CBN talents, award-winner broadcast journalist Art Bonjoc Jr and the number 1 multimedia talent in Northern Mindanao, Bernie Bitokbitok. The show was launched in October 12, 2020.
DavNor’s Project Kaagapay (Kawsa sa Agrikultura ug Panginabuhian sa Barangay) has caught the attention of GAHI NI BAI because of its noble objective of empowering the people through backyard farming to help them cope up with hunger and crisis amidst the pandemic brought by Covid19.
The Governor enthusiastically expounded on the subject saying that the Provincial Government has initiated to take steps in order to cushion the impact of the Covid19 crisis to the economy and to the lives of his constituents in general. As a food security and sufficiency program, the provincial government has distributed high-value crops and vegetable seedlings, as well as free-range chickens, to the partner-beneficiaries of the project. The provincial government will, in turn, buy the produce from the farmers through the Davao del Norte Investment and Promotion Center (DNIPC).
The zestful Governor was assisted by Ms. Joevynar M. Miedes, DNIPC Head, during the brief interview.
