    Good day we were just asking for the updates of the CNA ? No one give us a comprehensive answer for the last two years. The DBM with the RA 6758 under the budget cecullar no 2019_5 that the employee will get a 25,000 incentive what happen ? It’s been two long years of waiting without complaining.
