Task Force Davao to stay


DAVAO City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio wants Task Force Davao (TFD) to stay even if there have been no terroristic attacks since the special army group was formed almost a decade ago.
Duterte-Carpio made the statement after another TFD commander is set to assume post on Saturday taking over TFD chief Colonel Rey Leonardo Guerero.
"Sa pagkakaron, dili ma feel sa uban ang importansya sa TFD kay wala may nahitabo na dautan (As of now, people cannot feel the importance of TFD because there has been no attacks on the city)," the mayor said.
But Duterte-Carpio stressed the role of TFD in keeping the peace.
"Makita lang sa ubang ang TFD kung naay nahitabo (People can only notice the TFD when something bad happens)," Duterte-Carpio said.
TFD was created after the bombings at the Davao airport and Sasa Port in March and April 2003.
The mayor gave Guerrero an outstanding grade of 9.5, with 10 as the highest, in his one-and-a-half year as chief of TFD.
Army Colonel Marcus Norman Flores will assume the post on February 25.
Both Guerero and Flores are members of the Philippine Military Academy batch 1984.
