Davao City Cancels Araw Ng Dabaw 2020 Events

The Davao City government led by Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio on Monday cancelled most of the events for the Araw ng Dabaw 2020 celebration.

In an official statement, the public official said all preparations made this year will be executed next year.

"We shall leave it to the parents, schools, government/private offices and business establishments to ensure that their children, students, and employees understand the history of Davao City, where we are going with our Byaheng Do30 agenda, how we have shown the past 3 years that we stand tall, united, and resilient and that we shall embody discipline, integrity, and competence in the next 3 years," Duterte said.
