DAVAO CITY, Philippines — In his first day as the youth representative to the Davao City Council, newly elected Sangguniang Kabataan Federation President Jaffar Marohomsalic took oath as the new committee head for Youth and Sports and Development which was previously headed by Councilor April Marie Dayap.
