Cong. Mangaoang challenges youth to exercise free vote to achieve ideal result

Updated: May 3, 2022

Tabuk City, Kalinga – In his commencement address during the graduation of International School of Asia and the Pacific - Kalinga Campus, Congressman Allen Jesse Mangaoang challenged the graduate and other youth to exercise fully and freely their rights of suffrage to be able to achieve the ideal result this May 09 elections.

Mangaoang stated that the graduation is timely as it came at the crossroad of an important political exercise.

“It comes at a time when people demand servant leadership to prevail. It comes at a time when people long for leaders with integrity and accountability. Much is expected of your batch to positively influence the outcome of this election,” highlighted the congressman.

Mangaoang believes the school has prepared the graduates to be an empowered citizenry that could stand up and stand against issues that are vital to the building of more livable and humane society.

The idealism of the youth, he said, has the power to redirect and refine the development compass of the government thus, they ought to choose deserving leaders for each post.

“This election offers an impending challenge for you to step towards something and to refine and temper whatever you feel are a hindrance to our cause for development. If we feel we miss out on our moral obligations to point a finger on malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance of resources intended to alleviate the lowly plight of our people then we have to refine ourselves,” Mangaoang remarked.

“Kennedy said few will have the greatness to bend history but each of us can work to change a small portion of the events and the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation,” he added.
