CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Cebu Provincial Government pledged a total of P11.5 million of financial assistance to councilors who joined the Suroy-Suroy Sugbo tour this week.
Sugbo News, the Capitol-ran media outlet, announced that Governor Gwendolyn Garcia promised to give each councilor-members of the Philippine Councilors League – Cebu Chapter (PCL-Cebu) participating the Suroy-Suroy Sugbo cash aid amounting to P100,000 for projects in their towns or cities.
“The governor said the councilors can use this amount to come up with projects in their towns that will most benefit their constituents, either individually or collectively,” said Sugbo News on social media.
