Dangani said making songs for the community to sing is an effective way of promoting government programs to redirect the attention of the youth from the propaganda of the communist terrorist groups(CTGs). He is currently introducing an Ilokano song entitled “KADAbra” in the municipalities during his visits.
“While they usually use songs to pollute the minds of our young people, we will do the same by introducing the KADAbra to counter their ideologies and we want every young person in Abra to learn this song,” Dangani said in his message at the Monday morning flag raising ceremony here.
The KADAbra song was written by Dangani himself, who got inspiration from Abra PPO’s best practice called KAD-Abra which stands for “Kagimongan Agdidinnangay para ti Dur-as iti Abra”.
The KADAbra is the “Whole-of-Province” version of President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive No. 70 institutionalizing a “Whole-of-Nation” approach in ending local communist armed conflict in the country.
The KADAbra aims to establish a closer and more solid police-community relations by extending their services concentrating on anti-criminality, anti-insurgency, internal cleansing and good governance.
The practice also promotes police activism which encompasses knowledge, ability and discipline as its foundation.
Dangani shared that he was surprised when students of Our Lady of Guadalupe School in Lacub performed the KADAbra song translated in their own local dialect during the recent Municipal Peace and Order Council in Brgy. Poblacion. The municipality of Lacub is one of the top three priority conflict-affected municipalities of Abra.
For now, almost all the municipalities are familiar with the KADAbra song which lyrics also promotes community togetherness against insurgency and illegal drugs. (JDP/CAGT-PIA CAR,Abra)
