Mayor Osmeña vows to continue Barangay Mayor’s Office operations


Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña vowed to continue the operations of the Barangay Mayor’s Office (BMO).

The Cebu politiko made the statement after his party, the Bando Osmeña-Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK) candidates won majority of the barangays in the recent elections.

He explained the BMO is still needed because not all barangays will be functioning well.

“In some cases, yes. Because everybody has to get served. There are some barangays that will not serve their opponents. That’s a natural. So the BMOs will be there so that no one is left behind,” Osmeña said.

“I will not allow the majority to bully the minority whether youth or whether they are the minority in politics. I’m the father of everybody, supposed to be. Of course, they want to fight me. I know how to fight also,” he added.
