Despite Basilan Province’ volatile peace and order situation, Aurora Congressman and Team Pinoy’s senatorial frontrunner Sonny Angara has accepted without hesitation, an invitation to be the guest speaker of Basilan State College’s (BSC) 29th commencement exercises today.

Upon his arrival via the first morning flight from Manila, Angara immediately sails on board a 6:30 am fast craft trip to Isabela City, where he will be awaited for the 8:00 a.m. graduation ceremonies at the BSC gymnasium, in Barangay Sumagdang, around 3 kilometers from Isabela town proper.

Highlighting Angara’s speech, which is entitled, “I See Hope” would be how to inspire the new BSC graduates to not lose hope after graduation, as life offers greater chances of excellence for those who keep on having faith to what they have finished in school.

Angara, who chairs the House Committee on Higher Technical Education, is also set to encourage these graduates on the importance of ‘being smiley’, despite life’s economic difficulties, because “through smiles, there’s always hope for survival and it will likewise bring about a peaceful society”.

Angara is also set to refresh the minds of  these BSC graduates about beautiful things in Basilan, which would somehow make said province salable, in terms of tourism.

The Aurora Solon will also specify among the graduates, the important provisions of his proposed “Bill of Rights for new Graduates”, a type of legislation which is aimed at giving all fresh graduates ‘a good start’ while still looking for jobs, through granting of privileges, like exemption from payments of mandatory requirements like SSS ID, Tax Identification Number (TIN) ID, NBI clearance, and similar other governmental documents.

Angara is expected to commend four Pilipino teachers who were named as the Happiest Pinoys of the Department of Education last September 2012 and they are; Concepcion Tababa of Tubungan, Iloilo, Marcelo Otinguey of Kapangan, Benguet, Connie Emborong of Kolambugan, Lanao del Norte and John Gabriel Pelias who are exerting efforts to teach the students well.

Angara, who is serving his third and last term as congressman, is the son of outgoing Senator Edgardo Angara. — Philip Abuy and Dan Toribio Jr.
