Better NIR appreciation
by national officials seen

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said more members of President Rodrigo Duterte's Cabinet are openly supporting the establishment of the Negros Island Region, so he is confident that the national leadership will have a better appreciation of the NIR retention.

Discussion on the Negros lobby for the retention of the NIR is set to be tackled by the Cabinet in January, Local Government Secretary Ismael Sueno said earlier.

Earlier Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno had said the executive order creating the NIR would be repealed due to budgetary constraints.

2 former police
directors promoted

Two former provincial police directors of Negros Occidental and Oriental were promoted recently.

The newly-promoted police directors are Manuel Felix, who is the head of the Directorate of Integrated Police Operations-Western Mindanao, and Augusto Marquez Jr., chief of the PNP Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management.

A police director is equivalent to the rank of major general in the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Tesda chief seeks probe
on fake certificates

MANILA Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Director General Guiling Mamondiong has asked the National Bureau of Investigation to investigate the syndicate behind the production of fake National Certificate and Certificate of Competency, which are both being issued by the agency.

The NC is given to those who finish a course or pass the Tesda assessment after they have completed their skills training, while the COC is given to those who cannot avail of the NC.

Mamondiong emphasized that he is extremely concerned about the distribution of fake certificates nationwide because it ruins the image and credibility of Tesda.
