Press Release
April 19, 2016


Presidential bet Sen. Grace Poe will be in Mindanao tomorrow, April 20, to meet with local leaders and citizens from the southern cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, as well as supporters from the towns of Initao, Villanueva and Tagoloan, to share her campaign platform and be with Mindanaoans.

As Mindanao is home to some of the country's poorest towns and provinces, Poe will be trumpeting a program of action based mainly on the need to eradicate poverty, which according to the senator is the root cause of many major problems like criminality and insurgency.

She has earlier declared that one of her first acts as president, if fortunate, is to put an end to "endo," short for "end of contract," or contractualization, which she described as oppressive and discriminatory.

Poe will be in Iligan City at around 7 a.m., hitting the ground running as she visits the Iligan Public Market.

She will then meet with local officials of Iligan before proceeding to the town of Initao, where she will be conferring with LGU officials of Misamis Oriental and, subsequently, volunteer support groups from Gingoog, Jasaan, Claveria and Villanueva.

Poe will then proceed to Tagoloan to meet with supporters and local officials before proceeding to Cagayan de Oro City for a market visit and a big proclamation rally at the SM Pueblo Open Field.
