oct 16

The grandest wedding in Compostela Valley for Vice Governor Ramil Gentugaya and Joanna Aileen Ang this Saturday will usher a toast for cheers by among known who’s whos in Davao politics, pairs among whom would soonest be calling each other “pare” for being the chosen ninongs of the most sought-after bachelor Valentino in Comval.

Sources said that among the sponsors, the ninongs and ninangs of Ramil and Joanna, are Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and House Speaker Prospero Nograles, Davao del Norte Gov. Rodolfo del Rosario and former District 2 Cong. Tonyboy Floirendo, Comval Gov. Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, Comval District 1 Cong. Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora, District 2 Cong. Rommel “Bobong” Amatong, Tagum City Mayor Rey “Chiong” Uy, who’s whos in business and corporate world Nonoy Te, Madeline Dizon Marfori, Beth Uy Colina, Evelyn Ang, Arlene Ang and Nobleza Ang, among others.

Ramil, 33, and Joanna, 28, will exchange vows at the Redemptorist Church in Davao City at 2 P.M. this coming Saturday, Oct. 18. The reception will be at the Davao Convention Center along Torres Street, Davao City.
Joanna, an Ateneo De Manila graduate, is the daughter of businessman Joseph Ang and Angelita Maranan Ang of Davao City. She is a high-ranking staff of Unilab Phils.

Ramil is son of businessman and former Monkayo Mayor Rizal Gentugaya and Rosita Lao Gentugaya. His constituents will have a date with the couple in a post-wedding ceremony at Monkayo on Sunday, reports said.
From reports gathered, Ramil and Joanna met through his younger brother Roger (Ogie), who is also an Atenean but their families have been close due to some common businesses. The vice governor got Joanna’s “yes” just a few days before the May 2007 elections for his second term.

Ramil is considered as the most senior Lakas party member in District 1 qualified for the open congressional post in District 1 by 2010. He earlier confirmed to be running for the post, which Cong. Zamora’s daughter Boarmember Maricar Zamora-Apsay confirmed to be also running for.
But Comval has two great affairs to remember this Saturday.

Coincidentally, the province has the other big bash- the 77th birthday of provincial elder Prospero Amatong, a former councilor, former mayor, former governor, and former congressman, with at least 43 years in elected public service with no record of electoral defeat.

When he retired from politics to have his son Bobong picked up his tough service close before the campaign period of the May 2007 elections, he was hailed as a true statesman. Until now even outside of the government, he remains to be influential political kingmaker. He is feared by the incumbents. (Cha Monforte/Rural Urban News)
