16 ex-NPA receive aid via E-CLIP
by Marcelo B. Lihgawon / PIA

ASIPULO, Ifugao – Sixteen former members of the New People’s Army and Militia ng Bayan (MB) are the latest beneficiaries of the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) in the province.

The recipients, consisting of two NPAs and 14 MBs who have  returned to the folds of the law last quarter of  last year, received government assistance during a ceremony here facilitated by the local government unit, Department of the Interior and Local Government, and other government offices.

Ka Cindy and Ka Iyung received P65,000 each while the 14 MBs were granted P15,000 each.

Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Joseline Niwane said that the P50,000 was intended as livelihood assistance while P15,000 was given as immediate assistance.

The two former rebels were happy with their newfound freedom after they were captured/rescued in November last year in an encounter. They said they will use the money to start a new business.

Lt. Col. Narciso Nabulneg, Jr., commanding officer of the 54th Infantry Battalion, said that this only proves the sincerity of the government in implementing its localized peace talks and integration program for the former rebels through the concerted efforts of all government offices and LGUs.

“The 54th IB is willing to help in facilitating your surrender to have a normal life in the mainstream society. To the remaining NPAs in Ifugao, Mountain Province, Benguet, and Nueva Vizcaya, it’s time to embrace the government’s program and be a part of the nation building as what your other comrades did,” Nabulneg said.

E-CLIP is locally driven, managed, and implemented to provide more sustainability and consistency. It veers away from the past practice of pre-packaged interventions designed at the national level.

The program responds to the circumstances, needs, and concerns of former rebels through the provision of assistance and seeks to consider their basic rights and situations as men and women.
