‘NO EO can disunite
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
No executive order can disunite the provinces of Negros Oriental and Occidental, Secretary Leonor Briones of the Department of Education said at yesterday's awarding ceremony of the best implementers of Brigada Eskwela of the DepEd Negros Island Region, in Dumaguete City.
She stressed the two provinces have started to unite one year and eight months ago and they cannot be disunited anymore with an EO.
President Rodrigo Duterte issued EO 38 dated August 7, abolishing the NIR created under EO 183, signed by then President Benigno Aquino III on May 29, 2015.
