Benguet Board Member Nestor Fongwan Jr called on Cordillerans to support the appointment of ACT-CIS Representative Eric Yap as the province’s caretaker.
This amid the opposition of several Cordilleran politikos to the appointment of Yap, who is non-Cordilleran.
Yap was named Benguet caretaker after the death of the late representative Nestor Fongwan Sr.
“We will not gain anything if we continue to show our resistance to the appointment of the new caretaker,” the younger Fongwan said.
“We need to view the latest development in a positive manner and seize the available opportunities given to us to continue working for the advancement of the province’s development with the assistance and persistence of the caretaker congressman,” he added.
