Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. is set to deliver his State of the Province Address (SOPA) on December 11 during the regular session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan at the Capitol.
Panay News reported that Defensor wrote Vice Governor Christine Garin, the presiding officer, asking for a “privileged hour” with the Board members.
The veteran politiko has described his SOPA this year as “impactful.” He did not elaborate any further.
Defensor, 76, is now serving his third and last term as Iloilo’s governor.
His son, Rep. Arthur Defensor Jr. (3rd District) is eyeing to replace him in the May 2019 midterm elections.
