Negros Guv Degamo endorses prof as Congress bet


Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo is endorsing a professor and former university president as Partido Negorense’s candidate for the province’s 3rd legislative district.

Dr. Henry Sojor, former head of the Negros Oriental State University (NORSU), also claims to have the backing of former Rep. Herminio “Meniong” Teves, whose grandchild Pryde Henry is the incumbent 3rd district representative.

The young Teves is now on his last term.

In a PNA report, Sojor said it was the elder Teves that convinced him to run for Congress.

He admitted he “has no guns, goons and gold” and that he only has God on his side.

Sitting as secretary general of Partido Negorense, Sojor said his management skills as former university president is an advantage should he become congressman.

He added he had been a board member of the provincial board of Negros Oriental years back.
