I attended the Leaders’ Forum for One Cordillera. The Group is advocating autonomy to some LGUs namely; Baguio City, Mountain Province, Apayao, Abra, Kalinga, Ifugao and Benguet.

I assured the group of my full support and I will champion their cause, considering that it is really high time to give them their identity as a people and for them to enjoy the fruits and the richness of their land. This is the way to promote progress in this part of the country.
