Davao del Sur Governor Douglas Cagas did not care if after shocks from two 6plus magnitude earthquakes that rocked Tulonan in nearby Cotabato continue to rock his province and threaten government buildings including the Provincial Capitol.
Gov. Cagas had declared October 30 as “no work day” at the Capitol as engineers check damage to the building. But on the day, the governor had a date with his homeless constituents.
On the day, he was to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) with the Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC), the government agency tasked with implementing the government’s socialized housing for the homeless Pinoys.
As the specter of another earthquake and more after shocks looms over the province, Gov. Cagas, with his staff and a few Capitol employees, signed the MOU, atop tables hurriedly parked at the Capitol lobby, with SHFC president Atty. Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling.
