There is a perceived high expectation on how Gov-elect Arthur Yap will perform as the new governor of the province starting tomorrow.
He will be installed as governor during a formal inaugural and oath taking ceremonies at the Bohol Cultural Center starting at 9:30 this morning.
Yap, is perceived as a “high performing” public servant as based on what he has done during his nine years as congressman of the third district of Bohol.
In fact, his latest net satisfaction rating shortly before the last election was at 74% as contained in the Bohol Poll survey conducted by Holy Name University Research Center.
The incoming governor of Bohol was also able to assume national positions as agriculture secretary and NFA administrator before he joined Bohol politics.
His election to the governorship was boosted by votes coming from his congressional district.
Boholanos are expected to be watchful on how the new governor do his job, both in style and value as compared to the performance of outgoing Gov. Edgar Chatto.
He will take his oath of office before Judge Leo Lison.
In a text message sent to the Chronicle, Chatto said:
“As I end my term today as governor of the province, let me say THANK YOU for all the support and prayers. Nine years breezed through quickly and will always be treasured memories to keep. PADAYON BOHOL. God bless us all!”
Meanwhile, other provincial officials will also be sworn this morning.
Vice Gov-elect Rene Relampagos will also take his oath before Judge Lison.
Rep-elect Edgar Chatto of the first district will swear before Judge Lison, Rep-elect Aris Aumentado before Judge Suceso Arcamo, Rep. Alexie Tutor before JUdge Jennifer Marcos.
The 10 provincial board members will likewise take their oath, namely: Board Members-elect Aldner Damalerio, Ricky Masamayor, Lucille Lagunay, Frans Gelaine Garcia, Vierna Mae Maglasang, Restituto Auxtero, Victor Balite, Jade Bautista, Elpidio Jala and Bonita.
