Davao Oriental Governor Nelson Dayanghirang is now Davao Region's new Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) Chairman.
Governor Dayanghirang, along with other newly appointed government officials, took his oath during the mass oath-taking
ceremony presided by President Rodrigo Duterte yesterday, October 28, 2019, at the Malcañang Palace.
As Governor Dayanghirang takes the challenge of being the new RPOC chairman, he vows his commitment to continue the RPOC’s
momentum in the implementation of policies and strategies that would boost the region’s peace and order.
He also committed to share his province’s effective peace and development strategies, particularly his province’s
localized implementation of President Duterte’s Executive Order 70 or the Whole-of-Nation Approach to Attain Sustainable
Peace and to End Insurgency which is now making headway in Davao Oriental’s peace and development efforts.
The Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) is a special policy-making body and a government platform consisting of
various agencies aiming for stronger collaboration between LGUs, law enforcement, and communities to fight criminality,
illegal drugs, insurgency, and violent extremism.
Alongside RPOC Vice Chairman 10th Infantry Division Commander Major General Jose Faustino Jr. and Philippine NAtional
Police XI Regional Director Police Brigadier General Filmore Escobal, Governor Dayanghirang will assume the chairmanship
of the RPOC from his predecessor Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy who now takes the lead as the new Chairman of the
Davao Regional Development Council (RDC). PIO
