Power plants’ ‘Data Logging’ system will determine cause of power outage - NPC C

By Cheng Ordonez

AGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) remained mum on the reason behind the power outage Thursday (Feb. 27), saying they are still determining the cause and will issue a statement when the investigation is completed.

However, Atty. Romero Pasilan, spokesman of the National Power Corporation, said a data reporting system embedded in all power plants can generate data reporting of incidents to determine the cause. A top power executives’ meeting was held Friday morning to look into the cause of the problem. Atty. Romero Pasilan

said there is no problem in the power plants, even as he does not want to prematurely judge other possible sources of the power failure. He said all power plants have “data logging” of incidents installed in them that can generate reporting. The data are currently being downloaded from the plants to determine the source of See power, page 11

Corn farmers enroll in SOA program – The Department of Agriculture-10 through the Regional Agriculture and Fisheries Information Division will conduct a three-month long School-on-the Air (SOA) Program on Corn Processing and Value-adding in March 2014. Corn farmers from the municipalities of Misamis Oriental (top R-L and bottom left photos) and first district of Bukidnon (bottom right) have joined the orientation for the said program conducted in their respective municipalities. The SOA program is in line with the agency’s effort in its continuous dissemination of relevant information to the grassroots level which is vital in agricultural development and poverty alleviation. It will showcase technologies on corn by-products and its viability. These are essential in generating additional income opportunities among farmers and in encouraging them to venture into agri-business by ensuring the sustainable use of agricultural resources. It will be a thirty-minute radio program which will air modular discussions and instructions in corn processing and value-adding. It will be aired on a radio station based in Cagayan de Oro City during Monday and Friday at 5:30-6:00 PM. Quizzes will also be administered on the air and a post evaluation examination will be conducted towards the end of the program in the respective municipalities to measure the level of learning and the knowledge gained by the participants from the program. For interested farmers who are not yet enrolled in the SOA program, they are encouraged to visit the office of the municipal agriculturist in their respective towns on or before March 17, 2014 to signify their interest.

GSIS C. de Oro introduces eBCS to remitting agencies By Apipa P. Bagumbaran

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- The Cagayan de Oro Branch of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) will soon implement a new web-based application to facilitate its billing and collection system and procedures. The application called electronic billing and collection system (eBCS) was introduced to the admin-

istrative/finance officers, electronic remittance file (ERF) handlers and agency authorized officers (AAOs) of the different line agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations, state universities and local government units remitting to the branch through a hands-on training last week. The eBCS will facilitate the dissemination of billing file and support the submission and payments

of remittances, said GSIS Branch Manager Ma. Cecilia G. Vega. She said the new webbased system enables remitting agencies to download the electronic billing file (EBF) and upload electronic remittance file (ERF) where it would be validated for errors. It also facilitates payments of remitting agencies which can be made either through the conduit bank, via online

payment, or through GSIS over-the-counter. Vega said the new system which they hope to implement next month is user-friendly and will make the tasks of ERF handlers and AAOs easier to handle. She said its implementation is in line with the GSIS vision and mission of becoming more transparent, customer-friendly and effective in its service delivery. (APB/PIA-10)

C. de Oro National Tuberculosis Program gets city council’s nod No.: 09161714813 (GLOBE)

CAGAYAN de Oro City - The City Council has approved the P 1.4 million program of work of the National Tuberculosis Program of the City Health Department here, Vice Mayor Ian Acenas said on Thursday. He said that the city council has enacted the

approval of the program of work through Ordinance No. 12732-2014 for the purchase of 500 boxes of Quad Tabs and 590 boxes of BiPix, which are used in the treatment of tuberculosis (TB). City Health Officer Fe C. Bongcas told the city council

that TB remains a health threat in the country and treatment is crucial to control the disease, which has devastating consequences for the local and the national health level, Acenas said. “The proper handling of smear positive cases remains a priority as emphasized in

the program,” Acenas added. He said that the funds for the purpose would be charged against the item “Non-Office–Social Services: Reserve for Special Projects/Programs/Special Purpose Fund in the 2014 General Appropriations Ordinance (GAO). (PNA)

THROUGH Ordinance No. 12733-2014, the City Council during its regular session Monday presided over by Vice Mayor Caesar Ian E. Acenas approved the Program of Work of the Nutrition Program under the City Health Department. The legislative body appropriated the sum of P2.2 million from the item “Non-Office Social Services: Reserve for Special Projects/ Programs/Special Purpose Fund” in the 2014 General Appropriations Ordinance

(GAO) to be made available for the purpose. Based on the POW submitted by City Health Officer Dr. Fe Bongcas, P1.1 million will be spent for food commodities such as milk, rice, sugar and egg, among others while the remaining amount for operational expenses of cooking demonstrations in different barangays, among others. According to the local health office, malnutrition continues to affect majority of Filipino children and

this can be attributed to poverty, food shortage, poor sanitation and occurrences of natural calamities. The objective of the nutrition program is to provide food supplements to malnourished children in the city in the form of follow-up milk and other food commodities. It also aims to conduct a three-month long Mother’s Class for mothers of malnourished children and to provide hands-on training on food preparation techniques, livelihood

training and food production, as well as backyard and community garden for household and community consumption. The ordinance was reviewed and endorsed by the committees on health and sanitation chaired by Councilor Dante Pajo, on finance and ways and means chaired by Councilor President D. Elipe and on laws and rules chaired by Councilor Ramon G. Tabor. Elipe calls for review of 2003 local tax code

Training and Perseverance: Key to Successful Business By Oliver Badel Inodeo, Pantawid Pamilya Information Officer

C

agayan de Oro City Everyday is a chance to fulfill and achieve one’s dream. This is true to the life of a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (Pantawid Pamilya) beneficiary here as she tries to realize her dream business. Georgy Sosobrado, 39 of Phase 3 Macanhan, Carmen this city, said she complements the meager income of her husband, Anecito, who is a multicab driver, through her tailoring shop. Despite operating for only four months now, Georgy is not new to the business as she earned her skills in cutting, designing, and sewing from her mother who is also helping her at the shop. Out of the nine siblings, only Georgy fol-

lowed the footsteps of her mother who is always at the shop to help carryout her dream business. Georgy started to establish her tailoring shop specializing on curtains, pillow, eco-bag, bead works, gowns, among others October last year when she and fourteen members of Faithfulness Macanhan 4Ps SEA Kaunlaran Association availed of the P150,000 loan from the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Trainings Georgy, who is blessed with six children, can still manage to do some household chores and care for her family after a hard day’s work. She disclosed that she

learned how to manage her time after she under went trainings on management with the SLP when her group availed of the benefits of the program.  Aside from this, she also learned management of a business during Family Development Sessions of Pantawid Pamilya. This leader of the SKA of SLP is also the Parent Leader of Cluster 3 of Carmen this city. Georgy also pointed out the importance of learnings from her trainings under SLP and Department of Trade and Industry because her group has to earn in order to pay the P5,000 monthly rental of space of her shop located along the bustling Vamenta B oulevard, Barangay Carmen here. DTI taught the group of Georgy and other SKAs

of SLP in packaging their products, ensuring quality and durability so that they can earn patronage of their customers. But she quickly added that it is the informal training she got from her mother, who taught her perseverance and determination in all circumstances at young age, inspired her to continue to look for other effective in rearing her children. Innovative Since not all 25 members of her group know how to sew, design, and cut textiles for clothing, Georgy assigned 21 of them to canvass and promote the tailoring shops to prospective customers in schools and other agencies of the government. This strategy, she said, can attract prospective customers to avail of

their services. She found it effective way of luring customers that resulted in growing income of their business. However, Georgy lamented that only eight members of her group are religiously looking for orders from customers. Lately this month, the city government of Cagayan de Oro brought samples of their eco-bags during the CDO Business Forum in Makati City. The Field Office of DSWD, through SLP, has also linked them to the Department of Tourism for possible market of their bead works as it is good for pasalubongs (token). For now, all she can do is to continue to manage and operate the business with unceasing determination to boost everyone’s income of her group.

SLP is a communitybased capacity building program of DSWD that seeks to improve the socio-economic status of program participants. It is implemented through the Community-Driven Enterprise Development (CDED) approach, which equips the program participants to actively contribute to production and labor markets by making use of available resources and accessible markets. On the other hand, Pantawid Pamilya is the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program of government implemented by the DSWD so that families are able to get f inancial assistance, provided they comply with certain conditions imposed by Pantawid Pamilya, which include seeing to the health and education needs of their children.

Word on fire Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Contrary Special Gospel of the day:Luke9:1822(March1, 2014-Saturday)Luke9:19-22They answering said, John the Baptist; but some [say], Elias; and others [say], that one of the old prophets is risen again. He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. And he straightly charged them, and commanded [them] to tell no man that thing; Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day: This gospel is emphasizing the different reactions and perceptions of Jesus identity. We can notice that Jesus has a similarity of the prophets in the Old Testament. They were in common of doing the will of God or else the same interest and desire to glorify God in heaven. How about us, do we have similarity to the saints? There are people who are bearing the sacred names of the saints but their lives are “contrary” to the lives of their devotions. On the other hand, Peter has the right answer. Why only Peter knows? This was because Peter was one of the witnesses of the transfiguration of Jesus in Mt. Tabor. In our daily lives, do we see God? If the same question will be raised if who is Jesus Christ, what will be your answer? Take note, it is “difficult” to know God unless we experience his presence in our lives: Printing paid by: Neneth - Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO. St. Peter Calungsod, pray for us!

Opinion

sat-sun | march 1-2, 2014

NETIZENS, WATCH OUT! If you are in FACEBOOK or TWITTER or in the internet, you should sit up and look closely at the new law called Cybercrime Prevention Law (RA 10175) that punishes cyberspace libel. Just to immediately clear the air at the outset, the original author of a libelous article or post is the only one held liable. Netizens who merely pass on or “share” , “like” or even make a “comment” of a libelous post or material is exempted or excluded from being penalized. Only the original author is answerable. However mark this: if in making a “comment”, you mention a new or additional derogatory information not found in the original posting, then you can be held liable for that as the original author of that new information. For example, Pedro accuses Ana of being a mistress of Juan in a post. Pedro can be charged under the new law. Upon reading Pedro’s post, you can share or like or comment or affirm or even criticize Ana for being a mistress of Pedro. But if you write a comment saying: “Ana is also a mistress of Angelo” then you can be liable for that additonal info on Ana’s being with another person Angelo. So watch out. DECRIMINALIZE -- As a consequence of this new law, there is a big debate now as to whether or not we should decriminalize libel as defined in both the old revised penal code and as recently contained in RA 10175. “Decriminalizing” libel means removing imprisonment or the penal sanctions from our laws. It does not remove its civil liability so an offender can still be hailed to court by filing a civil case. This was triggered by the recent ruling by the Supreme Court declaring in part as constitutional, the new cybercrime law that penalizes the original

Advocacy Mindanao Jess Dureza author with a maximum of 12 years imprisonment. This is much stiffer, by the way, than the penalty against journalists and mediamen under the revised penal code of the Philippines. Those who support this argue that the penal sanctions are violative of our constitutional right to press freedom and stifles free speech and expression. It brings a chilling effect on ordinary citizens who are generally not aware of the nuances of criminal libel. Truth to tell, veteran newsmen and those in professional media do not anymore mind or feel any chilling effect or are perhaps already inured to this. Over the years, they have learned how to creatively write or say things that have the same critical impact but evading elements of libel to prevent prosecution. But not so with our internet users. On the other hand, those who are against this move argue that this will make our press and the internet users more licentious and abusive and leaves the libelled citizenry without remedy or recourse. But here is a distinction between netizens and journalists. In media, one who is defamed will have to submit one’s statement to the media for publication but cannot demand space to assure airing of that side. Whereas a blogger or a netizen can immediately give his/her side by also posting one’s own side in the public domain without asking anyone’s permission for space. 30 MILLION NETIZENS ---- The fact that this matter is now catching the atten-

tion of millions using the internet is a good sign. The estimated 30 million FilipIno netizens who are engaged in the so-called social media ( Facebook, Twitter, etc) are now rising up ( no, not in arms but in words) against the new law. Curiously, it is only when the Supreme Court, issued its ruling declaring the new law constitutional that a big howl of protest came. Not too many apparently noticed this when it went through Congress and then approved by the Philippine president. We were all caught napping because we could have stopped this on its tracks upon its inception during congressional deliberations and committee hearings. To belatedly block this in the Supreme Court invoking constitutional infirmity may be too late in the day, especially now that a decision has been rendered. The planned motion for consideration, which we should all support, may be futile at this time. It can be a bad law, done by bad-intentioned legislators but it can still be constitutional because it does not contravene any constitutional provision. But the furor now over this may be a good vehicle or platform for the long desired plan of decriminalizing libel. We definitely want to see this happen. SELF-POLICING ---- In print media involving members of the PHILIPPINE PRESS INSTITUTE ( PPI), there is an existing mechanism for redress against erring mediamen that is not known to many. The first line of redress for the

maligned and the disciplining of the concerned erring media person is first left to the newspaper where the reporter or writer belongs. The editor or publisher or its designated “ombudsman” is given the first shot. Failing in that, the aggrieved can file a complaint before the PHILIPPINE PRESS COUNCIL which is composed of representatives from media and multisectoral groups like the academe, business, etc. An investigation is done and if there is culpability the press council can impose sanctions. The newspaper can even be directed to give the aggrieved party space to ventilate or publish his side if this were not done so at the outset. However, the press council can acquire jurisdiction over the complaint only upon the submission of a written waiver by the complainant that he will not resort to the courts for redress. This administrative remedy is not so much penal in character but giving the complaining person an opportunity to clear his name or give his side after being maligned publicly by a published material. It leaves to the independent press the task of policing its own ranks. There is now an on-going effort at PPI to revitalize or organize locally - based press councils to make available this mechanism to the public. While PPI supports decriminalization of libel, it is committed to do its share in seeing to it that the public is amply protected from the abusive press. It will take parallel efforts in getting its media members capacitated to self-police effectively their own ranks. Because an independent and free press is regarded as the “Fourth Estate” (separate and distinct from the 3 traditional branches of government -- the judiciary, legislative and executive), it should be left on its own See dureza, page 11

Made For Pleasure Think a minute… Sex was God’s idea. God created sex in marriage for pleasure. The problem is that we have misused and twisted God’s plan for sex. We ruin this beautiful gift from God by using sex wrongly. So we actually hurt ourselves with wrong kinds of sex that were never intended for us. Sex is like our other appetites. Just like our appetite for food is to keep our body strong and healthy, sex has 2 main purposes: for PLEASURE and PROCREATION or having children. So we must use our sex drive in the right way for it to work best for us. The only way sex can be fully enjoyed is in marriage. It’s not lust and desire for anybody we want, so we can

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst just use them to make us feel good for the moment. God designed us so that sex we have with anyone who is not our wife or husband is not pleasure that will keep satisfying us for a lifetime, because it’s not a permanent, secure relationship. What’s more, sex with others you do not know well is extremely dangerous because of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Remember, you’re not only having sex with

that one person, but you’re having sex with every other person they have ever had sex with! God intended sex to continually get better in marriage because you love and know each other better through the years. So even though your children are grown up, that does not mean sex has finished serving its purpose. God’s plan for sex is much more than that. Remember, sexual closeness in marriage is

for both the husband’s and wife’s pleasure. That’s the kind of love God created for us to express and enjoy. Passionate love that satisfies your wife or husband and not just you. If you’re married and don’t enjoy close, intimate love in your relationship, then you’re missing one of the greatest gifts God has given to us human beings. So why not ask Jesus to forgive you for your wrongs in your life and marriage. Then ask Him to start changing you into a new person who learns to love your mate the way God wants you to. It’s only then that your marriage can start becoming the happy, satisfying one you want for the rest of your life. Just Think a Minute…

Mum on cause, NGCP says all lines reconnected to grid By Walter I. Balane

MALAYBALAY City -- The power transmission service in Mindanao is now back to normal, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) said in its 4:30 p.m. update in its website. “All NGCP substations connected to backbone lines in Mindanao were connected to the grid as of 12:18 p.m.,” the second advisory said. NGCP is still mum on the reason behind the outage aside from saying they

are still “determining the cause and will issue a statement when investigation is completed.” Meanwhile, Roderico Bioco, president of the Bukidnon Kaamulan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., said the still unexplained power outage in Mindanao early morning today serves as a wakeup call. Bioco told MindaNews the incident is just an “awakening” for a serious concern “that should preoccupy our national leaders.” He cited that the NGCP,

being a consortium with a state-owned company of China, is a concern. “This is a concern to me and should be to all of us since NGCP holds a vital function that can affect not just our economy, but more critically our national security,” he added. Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate, on the other hand, said in a statement that the “blackout showed how precarious still is our power situation more than a decade after the government’s power assets were privatized and handed down

and sold, some for a song, to a few players.” MindaNews reported Monday morning that a major fault along a transmission line maintained by the NGCP in Bukidnon province reportedly triggered the continuing massive power outage in parts of Mindanao. Mo s t of M i n d an a o plunged into darkness 3:53 a.m. Thursday, and the NGCP, in its website, said that it is “still determining the cause and is working to restore the power transmisSee NGCP, page 11

KAPATAGAN NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL CONDUCTS ADVOCACY FOR EARLY REGISTRATION By Wilma O. Bulaclac Teacher III, English Subject Coordinator, Mentoring Coordinator Kapatagan, National High School Division of Lanao del Norte

In support to DepEd Order No. 2, s. 2014, which declares January 25, 2014 as the Early Registration Day for the School Year (SY) 2014-2015, Kapatagan National High School (KNHS) initiated a massive advocacy campaign not only for the regular students but also for the out-of-school children (OSC) and out-of-school youth (OSY) in the barangays where the teachers visited. All faculty members of the school were deployed to the different elementary schools located not only in the municipality of Kapatagan but also to those which politically belong to neighboring towns like Sapad, SND and Lala. A pre-advocacy planning session was done in order to ensure the quality of the campaign. Letters were sent to the school principals and barangay chairmen to make the campaign well-coordinated and well organized. Personal gadgets like laptops, netbooks, tablets, and projectors were brought to each venue to show to the elementary pupils, to the OSC and OSY the videos of the competitions won by the school as well as slide shows of the school site and its facilities. The KNHS teachers also presented the best practices of the school and what it has to offer to the learners.

The use of ICT in the presentations was very helpful in getting across the message of early registration, that is the right to be educated and its importance to be competitive. It entices the elementary pupils to be more appreciative of higher learning. On the day of Early Registration (January 25, 2014), it was evident that most of the early registrants were those present during the advocacy campaign. Incoming Grade 7 students were accompanied by a parent or a guardian, whereas, incoming Grades 8, and 9 were independent enough to register on their own. Incoming students for the Open High School also registered on the same day. The Early Registration was done in all public elementary and secondary schools. It generally aims to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) on Universalization of Primary (Basic) Education and the objectives of the Education for All (EFA). Pursuant to the abovementioned DepEd Order, the Division of Lanao del Norte issued a memorandum (Division Memorandum No. 10, s. 2014) directing all public elementary and secondary schools to undertake an advocacy campaign to encourage the most number of parents to come out for the Early Registration.

Dureza...

Recycle...

to police and cleanse its own ranks of its own share of undesirables. Freedom and responsibility being co-existent, the press must do its part. But definitely, government and especially its officials who are at the receiving end of a free press, have no business interfering and playing policeman. That’s what press freedom is all about. But here’s a reality check on this plan to decriminalize libel through congress. Do you sincerely think our legislators who have suffered the brunt of a free wheeling press have the patriotism -- and appetite -- to remove the penal sanction? Sorry, but I doubt it! So don’t bet on it.

Mall goers can simply go the Recyclables Fair booth to dispose or sell items like used lead acid batteries; busted or old electronic or electrical appliances; paper wastes (Used paper, old newspapers, cartons, magazines, obsolete books and posters); plastic and metal wastes (e.g., bottles, containers, sando bags, plastic furniture, aluminum cans, tin cans and other metals); obsolete computer monitors, CPUs and peripherals; and used ink and toner printer cartridges.

the power outage. Atty. Pasilan refused to confirm a report circulated Thursday that said NGCP Tower 6 in Baloi, Lanao del Norte, was toppled down by explosives. Being on the power generation side, Pasilan said NPC cannot issue such statement. It is the NGCP that should issue the statement, he said. Sr. Supt. Madid Paitao, provincial police commander in Lanao del Norte, however, denied that a tower in Baloi, Lanao del Norte, has been toppled down by IED. In the first place, Paitao said, there is no steel tower 6 in Baloi, Lanao del Norte. What is in it is the Hydro Power No. 6. Despite this, Paitao has combined his forces with the army to conduct foot and combat patrol to the area to secure it. Mindanao plunged into darkness Thursday dawn and the NGCP said it is still determining the cause, even as it has already restored the power transmission service to all power customers in Mindanao. All NGCP substations connected to backbone lines in Mindanao were connected to the grid as of 12:18 p.m. Thursday.

heads of the provincial hospital has resigned from her post last month due to “health reason.” “There is no truth to rumors that disgruntled department heads in Misamis Oriental have resigned,” Pacamalan added. He said he has no plan to resign from his post. “I think the rumor of alleged resignation of department heads in the provincial capitol was just a case of political mongering,” Pacamalan said. Pacamalan, served as chief of staff of Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano in Congress prior to the latter’s election as provincial governor in Misamis Oriental during the mid-term election in 2013.(PNA) CTB/ CD/UTB

for open source (PISOS), spring development, solar pump, ram pump and wind pump irrigation systems. The Bagumbayan Farmers Association in Bagumbayan, Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte will be the beneficiary of a ram pump irrigation system In Region

sion service to all power customers in Mindanao.” The report quoted Santiago Tudio, general manager of the South Cotabato I Electric Cooperative (Socoteco I), as saying they were informed by the NGCP that the cause of the outage has initially been traced to the transmission lines connecting the National Power Corporation’s hydroelectric plants in Bukidnon to the Mindanao power grid. Tudio said in the report that the NGCP advisory did

not indicate any problem with the power plants but only with the transmission lines. “NGCP is still determining the cause and is working to restore the power transmission service to all power customers in Mindanao,” it added. It cited that as of 9:30 a.m., transmission service was restored in Davao City, General Santos City, Zamboanga City, Pagadian City, Cagayan de Oro City, parts of Misamis Oriental. Starting in 2008, the NGCP has obtained the task of delivering safe and reliable electricity through electric transmission business of the country. According to its website, in 2008 the consortium of Monte Oro Grid Resources Corporation, Calaca High Power Corporation, and State Grid Corporation of China won the franchise to operate, maintain, and further expand the power grid “in the biggest government auction conducted in efforts to reform the local power sector.” Republic Act 9511, signed into law on December 1, 2008, granted NGCP the franchise to operate, manage, and expand the electric transmission business of the country. The Franchise Law, a

product of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) of 2001, authorized NGCP to handle the transmission grid for 25 years, renewable for another 25 years, for a total of a 50year franchise. But Zarate lamented that the EPIRA “miserably failed us all these years” with “high power prices” and the “intermittent brownouts that sometimes lasted for hours.” According to the NGCP website, “the franchise only covers the operations and management of the transmission facilities but the assets, including lines, substations, land, and structures, will remain with the Philippine government through the National Transmission Corporation or TransCo.” “What was once a government owned and controlled corporation and a spin-off company of National Power Corporation, NGCP now holds the responsibility of bringing the electricity produced by power plants to distribution utilities. Though relatively new, NGCP tries to empower the country by building transmission lines that will traverse and interconnect our major islands so that every household will enjoy the benefits of electricity,” the NGCP added

in its website. R A 9 5 1 1 subj e c te d NGCP to the regulation and policies of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in the conduct of its operations. NGCP is also expected to report regularly to Congress to ensure the compliance with regulators and related laws, the website added. Zarate expressed fears that the blackout “will once again be used by the Aquino government to project a phantom power crisis and push or fast-track the privatization of the remaining government power assets like the Agus-Pulangi power complex,” referring to the hydroelectric power plants in Lanao and Bukidnon, respectively.
