Nacaya won the hearts of Cogon Market vendors

THE Monday’s convocation, November 27, 2017 was highlighted by the presentation of cultural dances from the Muslim community and the officers of CUVA or the Carmen United Vendors Association, who also took their oath of office before the City Mayor.


As the program continued, the officers of the CUMVA or the Cogon United Market Vendors Association, headed by Engr. Franklyn Dagcuta stood before thousands of City Hall employees and read the three citations and awards of recognition for exemplary performance as a leader and chief implementer of the effective management of Cogon Market, which led to the clearing operation of illegal vendors and instilling discipline and dispensing dynamic public governance over the Cogon Market affairs to Majority Floor Leader and Chairman of the City’s Economic Enterprise, Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya.


During the City Mayor’s address, he extended his felicitation to Councilor Nacaya for his resolve and political will and no nonsense implementation of traffic and market laws. He said further that the good councilor risked his life and political career in pushing for reforms in the city’s public market places, but history will be the judge that he was indeed fearless in discharging his duties as city official who is worthy of emulation. The Mayor then proclaimed City Councilor Nacaya as the real “Bayani ng Mercado” for the things that he had done for a “mahamugaway ug malambuan nga merkado,” for which the stall holders now earn more income and they are able to pay their rents and permits to operate business in the market.


The employees loudly cheered for the victor and multi-awarded councilor by clapping their hands and greeted him for a great feat in putting the rule of law in the management of the public markets. (PR)
