Sipag! No holiday break for Labella


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella will be having a working holiday this yuletide season up to the Sinulog celebration in January next year.

This will ensure that everything will be in order in the entire city during the Christmas season, said Labella.

“Unless there will be a compelling reason, I will not leave the city during the holidays, to look after the city,” according to him.

He added that he will not take a personal vacation for the Christmas and New Year celebrations. (

“As everyone will celebrate the yuletide season, I want them to feel secured because there is a city government looking after their welfare. I will be here to be on top of everything and in coordination with other agencies like the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO),” Labella said.

The city mayor said the government will directly coordinate with CCPO and other concerned agencies to maintain peace and order in the city.

The city government’s frontline services will also be available during the holidays to ensure that basic services are not be hampered.
