Ronnie Rapanut were also present to witnessed and support the MOPA signing. Present during the event were Twenty-two (22) LGU representatives (majority of which are municipal mayors) from the first and second districts of the province and two (2) city mayors who signed the MOPA.

                The province- wide MOPA signing on Public Land Titling Program or Handog Titulo Program is an opportunity for landowners particularly the deprived landowners of the province to avail of the free patent to be issued by DENR- I with the assistance of the Land Registration Authority (LRA) through the Register of Deeds and the LGU- Ilocos Sur. Furthermore, the MOPA signing is a symbol of sincere and sustainable public service initiated by the national and local governments towards nation- building that should be also a model and ideal to other provinces in the country.
