DILG's 'Tayo Na' TV show to provide valuable information for the people.

By Chito Chavez

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) explained on Tuesday that its first prime time television series "Tayo Na (Let's Go)" will be geared towards providing valuable information pertaining to the department's programs, which include the public's participation in good governance.

"We want to reach a wider audience and tell the public of the many initiatives of the government and the DILG to improve their lot. At the same time, through this program, we are telling the public to step forward and be a part of nation-building," said DILG Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya.

He noted the program was an educational magazine show that features the services, priority projects, success stories and informational briefers for the Filipino audience.

"Tayo Na' will provide the Filipino people with unprecedented access to the DILG projects all from the comfort of their own homes," explained Malaya.

The show adopts an educational immersion approach on the presentation of DILG projects as the team follows hosts Tricia Bersano and Jules Guiang joining the people working in the field.

Last Monday night's pilot episode featured the Manila Bay Clean-up, Rehabilitation, and Preservation Program (MBCRPP), an initiative of the DILG, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Department of Tourism, among other agencies, in restoring the bay to its pristine state.

Bersano joined the DILG team and several volunteers in one of the weekly clean-up drives, from picking up garbage to raking the coastline for debris.

The pilot also featured a highlight on the day-to-day responsibilities of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), an attached agency of the DILG.

Guiang ran down the list of tasks and responsibilities of what it takes to be a firefighter and the values of fire safety and prevention.

According to Malaya, Tayo na! also aims to educate the Filipino audience pertinent milestones and agenda of the department.

For instance, the pilot episode shared insights on the upcoming 2019 midterm elections, reminding the audience to vote for candidates who are mahusay, matino, at maaasahan.

He added the show also features a Pederalismo segment discussing the basics of Federalism and the benefits of adopting it to allow the Filipino audience to understand more about such form of government.

Upcoming episodes are geared to cover the role of the Philippine National Police (PNP) during the midterm elections and their efforts in preserving peace.

"The show is also set to shed light on the daily lives of local chief executives and local government officials, and will also feature a discussion on the training of the PNP Special Action Force (SAF)," said Malaya.

"Tayo Na"brings the DILG initiatives and success stories closer to the Filipino people. Let us work together towards creating more success stories as one community," he added.

Tayo Na airs on the People's Television Channel (PTV4) every Mondays at 8:30 p.m.
