Mayor Ferdinand B. Tubban honored the elderly of the city who he said are pillars of Tabuk.

He called on the youth and other people of the city to put value to life, instead of destroying it through vices and illegal activities.

CSWDO data showed that there are 9,723 senior citizens registered in Tabuk. At present, the city government provides social assistance to the sector through sponsored social pension, livelihood projects, and mortuary benefits. Larry Lopez (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
