Honest Capitol employee gets “promotion”

_IGP7873Carlo Cena, 27, thought Monday (February 10) was just an ordinary working day for him.

A Capitol outsourced utility personnel, he had no clue his life will take a twist by doing an act he believed so ordinary.

After the flag ceremony at the Capitol’s main entrance, Cena received a recognition for returning a lost P2,000 he found at the Capitol compound last month.

Provincial Legal Officer Atty. Orvi Ortega announced that he will now work as a casual employee effective February 10. According to Ortega, this is Governor Hilario P. Davide III’s way to reward Cena for his honesty.

Wa man ko naghuna-huna ug gante, ang ako lang di nako angkonon ang dili akoa,” said Cena. Cena added that he is a God-fearing man and is honest towards his work. He said he is happier with the appreciation he received by his co-employees.

In line with the governor’s parlance that under his administration the people will have an “honest Capitol,” Provincial Administrator Atty. Mark Tolentino said the Capitol honors employee who exhibits the value of honesty.

In a resolution dated February 3, the Provincial Board commended Cenafor his honesty. Vice Governor Agnes Magpale sponsored the resolution.

Cena, while doing his routine work, found the money and immediately turned it over to the Capitol’s Chief Security, Loy Anthony Madrigal who was able to contact the owner. Madrigal also informed Vice Governor Magpale about Cena’s laudable gesture. Xerxes Alkuino
