Retired Negrense general is Senate sergeant-at-arms

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Retired Negrense Lt. Gen. Roberto Ancan takes his oath as Senate Sergeant-at-Arms before Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri, in front of his family.*

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Roberto Ancan, of Victorias City, Negros Occidental, is new the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms.

Ancan, who retired from the military service in 2021 as commanding general of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Visayas Command, was recommended by Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri for the position, along with Senator Ronald Dela Rosa who sponsored his nomination during the Senate plenary session.

Ancan disclosed that he took his oath yesterday before Senate president Zubiri.

He replaces retired Maj. Gen. Rene Samonte.

Dela Rosa said the Senate is fortunate to have Ancan responsible for maintaining security and order in the Senate, describing him as a decorated military general.

“I am not simply nominating Gen. Ancan for the position of Senate Sergeant-at-Arms, I am more fundamentally nominating an honorable man for yet another opportunity to exercise selflessness, and by extension, utmost bravery,” Dela Rosa, a former PNP chief, said.*
