Not Oyo-Mylene, but Oyo-Nickel tandem is likely

Sept 8-14, 2011

I’ts not more of an Oyo-Mylene but more of an Oyo-Nickel tandem in the the offing as pundits would want to speculate.

Pundits in the rounds of Tagum City are now abuzz with words that by 2013 polls Councilors De Carlo “Oyo” Uy and Nicandro “Nickel Suaybaguio Jr might possibly team up for mayoral and vice mayoral bids in the administration’s slate under the political kingpinship of last-termer Mayor Rey “Chiong Oy” Uy.

“The tandem of Oyo and Councilor Mylene Baura is not likely as from the family name alone of Nickel, Baby would be provented from running for city mayor against Oyo for the sake of Nickel,” said one political pundit.

Baby there is referred to second-termer Vice Gov. Victorio “Baby” Suaybaguio Jr., who might run for city mayor for a mayoral comeback even while his name floats now to be a gubernatorial bet if second-termer Governor Rodolfo “RDR” del Rosario will not seek reelection in the midterm elections one and a half years from  now. In the latter case he would be opposing Mayor Uy, who had earlier declared his availability for a gubernatorial run if the governor would not seek reelection.

Oyo had long been endorsed by his father mayor for a mayoral bid by 2013 polls.

Nickel is Baby’s nephew being the son of Tagum’s known Nick Suaybaguio, a certified public accountant and former BIR revenue district officer. Mylene, on the other hand, is Baby’s niece by affinity with them belonging to the big Tagum closely-knit clans of Suaybaguio-Rina-Baura.

Oyo and Nickel are publicly known to be  so close friends and are seen to be always going together in public gatherings.

Baby’s possible running for mayor is reportedly egged out by his supporters due to Oyo’s  young age, though the latter is no longer political neophyte being a second-termer councilor, vis-a-vis Baby’s long experience in politics after becoming a councilor, vice mayor and mayor in the then municipality of Tagum in the 80s and 90s and becoming a vice governor for one separate term and being now a second-termer vice governor .

But in either scenario of Baby’s opposing Oyo or Mayor Uy for “no RDR” gubernatoral contest the current vice governor would be facing a logistics-rich rival.  (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
