MANILA, Philippines — BMPI-UNTV chairman and CEO Daniel Razon was officially adopted Tuesday night as a fraternal member of the Philippine Military Academy Maringal Class of 1988, PNP chapter.

Police Maringal Association Incorporated chairman Police Director Leo Angelo Leuterio said, Razon, more popularly known as Kuya Daniel, is very much qualified to become a member of their class as his character exemplifies a true “mistah.”

“In the case of Kuya Daniel, [it was] very easy because his reputation is well known. So it was very easy for us to come up with a decision. His values would be compatible with the Maringal class of 1988,” said Leuterio.

Kuya Daniel admitted he would have joined the military had he not become a broadcaster.

“Had it not been for the path that I actually followed in my life I could have been one of the military personnel cause this is also one of those things that I really want to pursue in my life,” he said.

Kuya Daniel vowed to extend his advocacy to them whom he now calls “comrades” and to the people that the class serves,  by conducting free medical services, free education program and through the service of the UNTV News and Rescue Team.

“For the service not only of our group but also for the service of those people that we serve. So you treat our station, your station. You treat our entity, your entity. And you treat me as your servant. I will be, with God’s help, your servant and the people’s servant,” said Kuya Daniel.

Meanwhile, members of Maringal Class of 1988 are confident that they will be able to render public services more so  now that they have Kuya Daniel.

They also promised to undergo UNTV’s rescue training to further widen their life-saving skills.

“When the situation calls for this training to be applied, we are grateful. I think it was a divine intervention these things cropped up during the dialogue we have with Kuya Daniel,” said Leuterio.

Aside from Kuya Daniel, among the prominent personalities adopted by PMA Class of 1988 are DOTC Secretary Emilio Abaya, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, and Senator JV Ejercito.

Sa anomang paraan na aking magagawa ay nangangako po akong sa tulong ng Panginoon ay hindi ko kayo ipapahiya (In any way I can, I promise, with God’s help, I will not embarrass you) and I will live up to be  maringal, marangal at kapakipakinabang ( noble, honest and productive),” said Razon.

“In any way that I can help, I promise that with the help of the Lord I will not let you down. I will live up to be a Maringal, noble and productive,” he added. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar on Friday directed police personnel to ensure the implementation of peace and order, and public health protocols in various sites as the deadline for the voter’s registration nears.

Eleazar issued the directive following reports of crowding and long lines in registration sites with only one week left before the registration closes.

He said police commanders should deploy enough number of personnel in various COMELEC registration sites to ensure the peaceful conduct of registration amid the threat of COVID-19.

Local police offices and units should also coordinate with local government units for the assistance they could provide once deployed in various registration sites.

The voter’s registration for the 2022 national and local elections is set to end on Sept. 30.

There have been calls and bills filed before the Congress to extend it until October, but the Comelec has yet to decide on the matter.
