ALABEL, Sarangani (September 1, 2021) – Barangay Captain Umbra Pangolima (left) takes his oath as the newly-installed president of the Federation of Association of Barangay Captains (FABC) of Sarangani on August 31. Pangolima assumed the position after Eduardo Paras Sr. died last July 29. Pangolima, who is serving 23 years of public service, is the barangay captain of Sapu Padidu and currently the ABC president in the municipality of Malapatan. “Hindi ko sukat akalain na magiging parte ako ng Sangguninang Panlalawigan ng Sarangani,” he said. “Nagpapasalamat ako na magiging representative ako ng mga barangay captains ng Sarangani at gagawin ko lahat ng aking makakaya bilang isang experienced na public servant ng mahigit dalawang dekada para makatulong sa pagpapaunlad ng ating probinsya,” he added. Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, who officiated the oath taking ceremony via virtual platform, told Pangolima that “his role in the Sanggunian is very important” and advised him “huwag kang matakot in speaking out your sentiments and just be yourself.” Department of the Interior and Local Government provincial director Engr. Samuel Camaganacan (right) was also present at the provincial Capitol to witness the oath taking ceremony. (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
