Philippines’ youngest senator Bam Aquino was in Cagayan de Oro last February 15 for his thanksgiving dinner to Kagayanons and Northern Mindanao which was held at Limketkai Luxe Hotel. The event was facilitated by the men and women of Mags Boutique since the owner, Mags Cue is a close friend of Senator Aquino.
The invited guests were mostly businessmen and young entrepreneurs. During Senator Aquino’s speech, he stressed the significance of his Go Negosyo Bill which could alleviate poverty by employing more Filipinos especially the youth. He envisions the students today who are being educated under the K to 12 Program to land a job immediately after they graduate through several establishments opened by entrepreneurs. They can also build their own businesses with the help of the government.
Also present in the event were government leaders such as Cagayan de Oro’s Second District Congressman Rufus Rodriguez and Camiguin Governor Jurdin Jesus Romualdo.
