LUPON, Davao Oriental – The 28th Infantry (Kamagong) Battalion continued enhancing its convergence efforts with the city government of Mati, Davao Oriental by attending the regular session of the Sangguniang Panglungsod of Mati City, Davao Oriental on Tuesday, September 20.

City Vice Mayor and Chair of the Sangguniang Panglungsod Carlo Eric Rabat, along with the City Councilors, were treated by an extensive presentation outlining what 28IB has been doing emphasizing the AFP’s Campaign Plan ”Bayanihan”.

The City Council had the chance to see what the Army, particularly 28th IB, is exerting in winning the peace and pursuing development through 10th ID’s Peace and Development Outreach Program (PDOP).

Lt. Col. Leopoldo A. Imbang Jr. stressed the Unit’s PDOP accomplishment in San Isidro, Davao Oriental and their current efforts in Lupon.

He added that Mati City and Banaybanay, along with Governor Generoso, will experience the same through the help of the LGUs, LGAs, NGOs, Youth, Religious Groups, Media, and other main players in Peace and Development.

Rabat congratulated Imbang for his unit’s efforts and is expecting that Mati City will also benefit 10th ID’s Peace and Development campaign.

He also mentioned that he, along with the City Councilors, welcomes the presence of more troops in his city to help the PNP in fighting and preventing crimes.

“The 28th IB cannot do such a huge task alone, thus, we are encouraging the people of Mati, through the City Council, to take their part to make the city not only an economic hub but the most promising Tourist destination in the region,” Imbang said.
