Lingayen--- Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. will deliver his seventh State of the Province Address (SOPA) on Monday, February 10 at the Capitol Grandstand here.
Provincial Administrator Rafael Howard F. Baraan said in an interview yesterday that the SOPA will specifically not only dwell on the feats of the province but will embody the aspirations of the governor who is on his final term of office.
Baraan said that the governor's SOPA is "simple yet meaty."
Expected to join the governor on the big event are the key officials of the provincial government, the department heads and chiefs of hospitals, congressmen and local chief executives, representatives of different government and non-government agencies/organizations, and students from various schools.
The affair will start with a thanksgiving mass at 7 in the morning followed by the main event which is the SOPA. This will be followed immediately by the traditional courtesy call.
"We are inviting the public to come and witness the event and listen to the governor as he delivers a factual report on how far the province had gone since he assumed his post as the provincial chief executive," the provincial administrator disclosed.
