The Politiko couldn’t help but feel grateful on the army’s presence.
Cagayan de Oro Mayor Oscar Moreno recently lauded the presence of the Army’s 4th Infantry Division (4ID), citing it as one of the contributing factors of the city’s progress and development. During the division’s 50th founding anniversary, the Mayor said the 4ID has played an important role in the peace and order situation in Northern Mindanao.
“We are blessed that 4ID covered Northern Mindanao because our [division] commanders are good. The national defense helps us a lot, in terms of serving the people and securing the land,” Moreno was quoted during his speech.
Aside from Northern Mindanao–except Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Iligan City–4ID also covers Caraga Region.
