DILG Sec. Año lauds Isko’s political will




The Department of Interior and Local Government(DILG) took notice and it is giving the newly elected Manila Mayor his due.
DILG lauded Mayor Isko Moreno as he tackles the many ills of the nation’s capital with “political will.”
“I’m pleased that in the first week of his administration, Mayor Isko has already shown that the challenges of the city are not insurmountable and can be addressed with political will and commitment,” Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said in a statement.

DILG Sec. Año cited Mayor Moreno’s cleanup of Divisoria, Blumentritt, Quiapo, and Carriedo station, which have been cleared of illegal vendors and other obstructions in his first week of office, a feat that his predecessor, veteran politician Joseph Estrada, was not able to do during his two terms in office.

He also commended Moreno’s programs on waste management, clearing waterways and illegal gambling, initiatives that should be emulated by other local chief executives of the country.
“We hope that the actions of Mayor Isko will inspire other local chief executives in other parts of the country to follow his example and to similarly show decisive leadership in bringing about change in their communities because that is what the people expect,” the DILG Sec. said.
The challenge now for the Manila mayor, according to Año, is sustaining the early gains of his administration, particularly in clearing waterways, which he said will help in improving the conditions of the Manila Bay.
“We look forward to working with him closely in order to return Manila Bay to its pristine beauty, as directed by President Duterte,” he said.
