The City of Bogo is among the pioneering cities for the first Songwriting Campaign and Workshop series project. A project by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) – Cebu Provincial Office in coordination with Artist Ko Multi-Purpose Cooperative featuring Cebuano artists and experts to mentor emerging talents all over the province.

The workshop sessions will serve as product development phase for the creatives in designing the appropriate music and lyrics in the local dialect and produce competitive songs ready to be launched to the market through the VISPOP 6.0. Furthermore this activity will also bring out the informal settlers in the ecosystem and encourage them to become more relevant stakeholders of the industry.

City of Bogo First Run Against Illegal Drugs - Dagan Kontra Druga



Bogo Police Station in cooperation with the City Government of Bogo will held the first DAGAN KONTRA DROGA (Run Against Illegal Drug) on August 13, 2017.


By joining this run, we are saving lives and supporting our drug surrenderers in their journey to freedom from the use of illegal drugs. Our drug surrenderers have undergone (and many are still undergoing) the ReRe or the Reintegration and Rehabilitation Program. A community based rehabilitation program for drug surrenderers in the City of Bogo.

Let us help our police force and the City Government in their effort to renew the lives of drug users.



City of Bogo officially declared first drug-free city in Central Visayas

The City of Bogo was declared first drug-free city in Central Visayas. Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency 7 Regional Director Yogi Filemon Ruiz personally distributed the certificates to each of the 29 barangays of the City of Bogo who all obtained drug-cleared status during the ceremony conducted at the Cebu Provincial Capitol on July 20, 2017.



During the ceremony, at least 11 barangays in the neighboring San Remigio town also received their Certificate of Drug Cleared Barangay which now make the total number of drug-free barangays in Cebu to 160 while all other 1,066 are still affected by illegal drugs.

The declaration of a drug free barangay is a long process, the Oversight Committee on Barangay Drug Clearing Operation of PDEA 7 has to follow a lot of validation protocols and processes. 

Ruiz expressed hope that more villages will be declared drug-free. "There are those who fail to meet the requirements, maybe because of the failure to exert more efforts in the intensified campaign illegal drugs. And maybe they never do anything about the drug problem in their communities. But there are some who had complied, and will comply,” he said.

City of Bogo Mayor Atty Carlo Jose Martinez said that there is no secret formula for making an entire city be declared drug cleared. It only takes team work and contribution from all sectors in the community. He said that even students in the community based drug rehabilitation program can be warriors against illegal drugs by simply spreading the word on the menace brought by it (illegal drugs).

Also present during the ceremonial declaration were the officials of the declared drug-free barangays, Bogo Police Station Chief PSupt. Byron F. Allatog, Mayor Mariano Martinez of San Remigio, Gov. Hilario Davide III, Vice Gov. Agnes Magpale, Cebu Anti Drug Abuse Office head Carmen Remedios Durano Meca, DILG Central Visayas Head Rene Burdeos and PRO-7 director Chief Supt. Jose Mario Espino.

BOGO INTER-BARANGAY BASKETBALL LEAGUE – MAYOR CARLO’S PET PROGRAM



BOGO INTER-BARANGAY BASKETBALL LEAGUE – MAYOR CARLO’S PET PROGRAM


Sometime in June 2016, I was privileged to have a casual conversation with the newly elected Mayor of Bogo City, Atty Carlo Jose A. Martinez while waiting for Mayor Junie Martinez at their residence in Taytayan, Bogo City, Cebu.

Mayor Carlo, being a basketball enthusiast told me that he dreamed of holding an Inter Barangay Basketball League in the City of Bogo that will culminate during fieasta season every month of May. He wanted to give to the young people of Bogo something to look forward to and make themselves busy on their free time.  He wanted to make sure that all 29 barangays of Bogo will create their team and join the league. He even want it to be a regular event every year.

Matud pa niya nga makahatag gyud kinig kalingawan dili lang sa mga batan-on kondili sa mga lumulupyo sa Bogo in general. Makatabang pa gayud kini nga malikay ang mga batan-on sa droga ug mga bisyo kay malingaw naman unya silag duwa  ug sa pangandam alang sa ilang mga duwa. Pinaagi sab kuno niini, daku pud chance ang Bogo nga modaug ug mo top sa mga sports events sa probinsya o sa rehiyon. Kadtong mga batan-on nga maningkamot nga mahimong maayong laking mga players, makatabang ni sa ilaha nga makalampus sila sa ilang pangtungha sa kolihiyo pinaagi sa scholarship grants nga mahatag sa mga universities tungod sa ilang pagka Basketball player.

Since last August he made the necessary preparations to ensure the holding of this event (and of other sports events also). He also commissioned Hon. Noel Seno, Sangguniang Panglunsod Chairman on Sports to prepare, draft and suggest the ground rules as well as people that will help in holding the league.

Mayor Carlo is looking forward to start the league before year 2016 ends. So as long as everything is in order, he will then set the date for the opening of the league.

Padayon Bogo, padayon!
