Preserve historical sites â€“ Loren
Genuine Opposition (GO) senatorial candidate Loren Legarda called yesterday for the preservation of the prehistoric Huluga open site and caves in Barangay Indahag here as they form part of the countryâ€™s heritage.
In Senate Resolution 656, Loren urged the Senate committees on education, arts and culture and the environment and natural resources to conduct the investigation.
“(The) Huluga open site and caves in Cagayan de Oro City are among the remaining treasures of our heritage. We hope that every Filipino would consider it his duty to preserve our cultural and historical sites,” Loren said.
