The country's biggest seaport Passenger Terminal Building is officially inaugurated at Cagayan de Oro Port yesterday, 15 July 2019.

The 5,625 sqm.-facility can accommodate up to 3,000 passengers daily, triple its previous passenger capacity. The new PTB now strengthens the strategic position of the CDO Port as the "Global Gateway to Mindanao."

It also features amenities such as a play area for children, child care station, ecumenical prayer rooms, drinking fountains, toilet facilities, urgent medical care room, food stalls, pasalubong centers, and a special boarding lane for senior citizens, PWDs, pregnant women, and women traveling with children below two years old.

DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade and Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) General Manager Jay Santiago led the inauguration.

In his speech, Secretary Tugade reminded the men and women of the PPA to run the facility well and without any taint of corruption.

"Kung mayroon tayong gusali made of stones and granite, kailangan 'yung character ninyo mas matibay kaysa sa gusaling ini-inaugurate natin. Kung gusto niyo ang pag-uugali ng isang kawani ay mas matibay pa sa bato na ating itinatayo dito, tayong lahat sa gobyerno, kailangan panindigan ang hinihingi ng ating Presidente, walang korapsyon," stressed Secretary Tugade.

Other officials present during the inauguration were Misamis Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Emano, Cagayan de Oro City 2nd District Representative Maximo Rodriguez, Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno, DOTr Undersecretary for Finance Garry De Guzman, Undersecretary for Aviation and Airports Manuel Antonio Tamayo, Undersecretary for Maritime Fernando Juan Perez, Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark de Leon, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Martin Delgra III, LTFRB Board Member Antonio Gardiola Jr., and other local government officials. - DOTr
