The Philippines has been a "decentralized" form of government since 1991, contrary to what most Filipinos think. Ever since the creation of Republic Act 7160, each LGU is responsible for its own domain. Even the smallest LGU the barangay creates its own Budget. It is not dependent on handouts from the city, municipality or province. "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines

The signing of Executive Order No. 249 on July 26, 1949 by the late President, His Excellency Elpidio Quirino, marked a very significant day for this municipality. It was by virtue of this Presidential Act that Ipil, which was originally only a sitio of Barrio Bacalan of the former district of Kabasalan, was officially created and made a full-fledge local government unit.

When it was created, Ipil was composed of Barrios Bacalan, Titay, Liguisan, Tungawan, Bancaan, and sitios of Tupilak and Dawet; and also Lumbia, Magdaup, Makilas, Pangi, Poblacion, Taway and Tiayon. Other barrios and sitios were created in 1950s to 1960s, such as: Tigbawang, Tando, Looc, Tigbucay, Upper Tungawan, Tigpalay, Cayamcam, Looc Sioral, Taglibong, Tigbongabong, Langon, Gapas-gapas, Mangalibod, Buhangin, Lalawan, Bangko, Palomok, and Malagandis.

The Honorable Gregorio Dar was the first Mayor of Ipil who got his position by appointment and Honorable Eleno Roble was the Vice Mayor. There were only four councilors, namely: Honorable Salip Toto Hasim, Honorable Habib Ibrahim Alsree, Honorable Antonio Limba and Honorable Inocente Tayo. The first Municipal Secretary was Ildefonso Caburian. Adriano Merjuar was its first elected Mayor in year 1951. The residential house of Mr. and Mrs. Jesus Hitco Siao, located at Bangkerohan, served as the temporary town hall. Then it was transferred to the house of Mr. and Mrs. Jaime Crisologo, which is strategically located near the intersection of the national highways, which is at the center of the town proper.

On May 24, 1960, by virtue of Executive Order No. 395 the two barangays of Ipil, namely: Tungawan and Titay were separated to become two separate municipalities. The barrios and sitios of Tungawan, Tigbawang, Tando, Looc, Tigbucay, Upper Tungawan, Tigpalay, Cayamcam, Looc Sioral, Taglibong, Tigbongabong, Bancaan, Langon, Linguisan, Gapas-gapas, Dawet, Mangalibod, Buhangin and the barrios and sitios of Lalawan, Bangko, Palomok, and Malagandis were enumerated to be part of the new municipalities respectively.

Their first Mayors were:

  1. Honorable Teodorico Ruflo for Titay and
  2. Honorable Jose F. Villafuerte for Tungawan.

On the later part of 1960s,

  • The barangays of Guituan, Ipil Heights, Veterans Village, Sanito, Suclema, and Timalang were created through Municipal Council Resolution No. 97;
  • Barangay Labi, through Municipal Council Resolution No. 106;
  • Barangay Lower Taway and Tomitom through Provincial Board Resolution No. 178;
  • Barangay Don Andres through Municipal Council Resolution No. 116; *Barangay Tenan through Municipal Council Resolution No. 134;
  • Barangays Bangkerohan and Upper Pangi through Municipal Council Resolution No. 163;
  • Barangay Lower Ipil Heights through Municipal Council Resolution No. 175;
  • and Barangay Buluan through Municipal Council Resolution No. 198.

When the highways finally opened to traffic in 1961, Ipil experienced a very rapid growth of development. It was during this time that the elected Mayor Generoso Sucgang, Sr. constructed and finished the 2-storey concrete Municipal Building. In January 1972, Andres P. Olegario took his oath of office as the Municipal Mayor of Ipil.

On March 16, 1982 by virtue of Batas Pambansa Bilang 183, Surabay and its neighboring barangays, such as: Calula, Casacon, Gango, Katipunan, Kulambugan, Mabini, Magsaysay, New Antique, New Sagay, Siawang, Silingan, Tilasan, and Tupilac were separated from the municipality of Ipil, becoming a new Municipality called R.T.Lim.

Honorable Romeo Billote was appointed as its first Municipal mayor. Because of the People Power of 1986, Mayor Andres P. Olegario and all elective officials in Ipil were replaced by the OICs, so that on June 30, 1986, Dr. Henry de Villa was appointed as the OIC Mayor and ABC President Cleopatra P. Largo was appointed OIC Vice Mayor. OIC COUNCILORS also replaced all the councilors.

In 1988, Atty. Jose Fontanoza won the election to become the Municipal Mayor of Ipil. On June 30, 1992, Francisco Q. Pontanar, newly elected Mayor and Atty. Rey Andre C. Olegario, newly elected Vice mayor, together with the newly elected members of the Sangguniang Bayan took their oath of office in the most solemn and official manner before the Honorable Judge Sergio S. Apostol of the Regional Court at the IPIL GYM.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

The great river of Ipil has almost 4 kilometers of navigable waters. There are 3 bridges that crosses the river. This river has a great potential for the development of tourism.

The municipality needs to invest in walkways by the river. Sooner or later the DENR will fund Ipil to build riprap or river embankment protection. This will protect the river banks from breaking down. In conjunction with the river embankment project the administration can also build a gutter system alongside the embankment to prevent the sewer of the municipality from being drained into the river. Currently (year 2013) all the sewer systems of the municipality drains into the river and pollutes it.

Will this be done by the ipil government? Who knows? As of 2013 the river embankment program is still not in place. Let us see if the administration will continue to pollute the river or protect it.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
