Davao Light denies takeover plan vs. power coop
To show he is serious in providing cheap and reliable electricity to his constituents, Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib should now help improve the Northern Davao Electric Cooperative (Nordeco), after the Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC) dismissed his attempts for the power giant to take over the operation of the power coop.
This is the advice dished out by Asuncion Mayor Eufracio Dayaday, Jr., a vocal critic of Jubahib’s plot, as DLPC said it has no intention to take over the power cooperative.
Jubahib, in the forefront of the efforts on the privatization of Nordeco and its turn over to the DLPC, claimed corruption and mismanagement in the coop that has been serving the provinces of Davao del Norte and Davao de Oro (formerly Compostela Valley) for nearly five decades
General Manager Mario Angelo Sotto dismissed Jubahib’s claim, hinting that dirty money could be involved in the governor’s efforts to throw away the power coop to the Aboitiz-owned company.
DAVAO DEL NORTE, ASUNCION MAYOR EUFRACIO DAYADAY SKEWERS GOVERNOR EDWIN JUBAHIB FOR FORCING TAKEOVER OF NORTHEN DAVAO ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE (NORDECO) BY POWER GIANT DAVAO LIGHT AND POWER CO.
“Unya kung ma-privatize na, kaya nila makabetan ug kuryente ang mga non-viable areas? They cannot do it because they always look at the profit. Kung walay kitaon, walay serbisyo nga ilang ihatag, whereas kita nga mga elektrik kooperatiba ang atong misyon is service.”
This is the strongly-worded message of Department of Energy (DoE) Undersecretary, Benito L. Ranque, during his visit in Davao del Norte on July 19 in response to reports to privatize the Northern Davao Electric Cooperative, Inc. (NORDECO), which provides power to Davao de Oro and part of Davao del Norte.
The takeover attempt reportedly by the power giant Davao Light and Power Co. (DLPC) is being pushed by DavNor Cong. Pantaleon Alvarez and Governor Edwin Jubahib.
Aranque expressed a strong support to NORDECO, being a part of the country’s electric cooperatives, sharing the same vision when it comes to rural electrification.

Politicians meddling in electric coops may face charges before the Ombudsman
For leading a privatization campaign calling for power giant Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC) to take over the operation of the Northern Davao Electric Cooperative (NORDECO), Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib could be charged before the Ombudsman for meddling in the affairs of a cooperative.
Politicians interfering in the affairs of an Electric Cooperative (EC) to its detriment can be charged before the Office of the Ombudsman for violating Republic Act (RA) 10531 or the National Electrification Decree, a top official of the National Electrification Administration (NEA) said, in a report in the online news site NEWS FORT.
“The case will go directly to the Ombudsman,” NEA administrator Edgardo Masongsong said in a virtual press briefing, Saturday (July10).
Under RA 10531, politicians cannot interfere with the operation and management of ECs especially in pushing for a “takeover” by private capital investors.
He said the politicians’ intrusion in the EC’s operations will hinder its improvement.
Masongsong statement is in view of the recent public declaration of the Island Garden City of Samal (IGACOS) Mayor Al David Uy and Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib urging the Northern Davao Electric Cooperative, Inc. (NORDECO), formerly Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (DANECO), to give up and transfer the franchise to Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC). READ MORE
PART I: Did the Governor order the Otso Inidoro attacks
Radio broadcasters working at the information office of the Davao del Norte Capitol under Governor Edwin Jubahib are facing multiple counts of libel and cyber libel cases for “deliberately maligning and defaming” Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy and his father Provincial Board member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy.
Lawyer Glen Carnicer, the legal counsel of the Uys, said 20 counts of libel and 20 counts of cyber libel or 40 counts against each member of the group have already been filed in court.
“We are still continuing to prepare more cases, said Carnicer in an interview in Tagum City-based radio station RPFM 99.9 on Monday, July 5.
Even as the broadcasters are employees of Capitol, Carnicer did not say if the broadcasters are under instruction by Jubahib to hit the Uys.
But he said the Uys suspect political motives as the attacks in the broadcast of the group are always followed with the group promoting their candidates. There is a deliberate purpose to malign and defame the Uy family with the malicious commentaries so there is political motive, said Carnicer in the Bakbak radio program , also streamlined on Facebook, anchored by Kid Libunao.
The group of eight broadcasters since early May had launched brutal attacks in their commentaries against the Uys, accusing the officials of various acts of corruption in government deals.
Documents from Capitol, have identified the members of the broadcasters working at theProvincial Information, Communication and Knowledge Management Office (PICKMO) under the Office of the Governor, their designation and compensation.
