Creation of Talikud Island of Samal Island as a municipality drummed up

may 23, 2014

Davao del Norte Board Member Alan Dujali has drummed up the townhood bid of Talikud Island out from its four barangays.

Talikud Island is part of the larger Island Garden City of Samal (Igacos) and is known of its yet pristine, largely unspoiled nature.

Dujali has called on the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to nod on the joint resolution of the Barangays  Sta. Cruz, Dadatan, Cogon and Linosutan that petitioned for the creation of Talikud Island as a component municipality of Davao del Norte.

On April 7, 2013 the barangay sanggunians of the four barangays held a joint session at the Barangay Hall of Sta. Cruz of Kaputian District in Samal Island and approved a joint resolution petitioning that their barangays would compose Talikud Island as a full-pledged municipality.

The joint resolution was backed up by thousands of signatures of people residing in the island obtained from signature campaigns.

Dujali said that the creation Talikud Island as a municipality is one of the priority good governance agenda of Governor Rodolfo del Rosario.

The four barangay sanggunians reasoned out that that Talikud Island “has been neglected and deprived by the national, provincial and city governments in one way or the other, thus development was slow, and it is now high time that they be given more attention and larger allotment of funds and projects by the provincial and national governments.”

They premised that island “has been endowed by nature with white beaches, pristine sea, wonderful underwater coral garden, abundant fishes and sea mammals, explorable caves and underground attractions, and of course, friendly and God-fearing, peace-loving inhabitants.”

They said that the forming of the four barangays into one municipality qualifies the requisites of income, population and land area spelled out in the Local Government Code. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
