Gobway, in a message, expressed his gratitude to the leadership of the Armed Forces of the Philippines for the trust and confidence given to him.

"As I assume command of this Brigade, expect that we will work as a team and together we will outsmart our enemies and put premium in working hand-in-hand with our stakeholders," Colonel Gobway said.

The turnover ceremony was presided over by Major General Generoso M. Ponio, head of the Army's 1st Infantry Division.
