COTABATO CITY—To provide better services to its constituents, the Bangsamoro Government is set to build more village halls in the two towns of Maguindanao del Norte.
The Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG) broke ground Wednesday, March 15, for the construction of 2-storey barangay halls in the Municipalities of Parang and Barira of the said province.
Among the recipient barangays in Parang were the Nituan, Magsaysay, mainland Orandan, BM Biruar, and Litayen in Bongo island. In total, Parang has six (6) barangay halls as the construction of Making barangay hall is ongoing.
Meanwhile, four (4) barangays in Barira, namely Bualan, Lipa, Liong, and Panggao, shall benefit from the said project.
The project, worth Php3.5 Million each, is funded under the Office of Chief Minister (OCM) and implemented by MILG to Support Local Moral Governance (SLMG).
MILG Minister Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo said the Bangsamoro Government is committed to providing services for its constituents to ensure that its people receive the best services possible.
“It does not mean that because we only partner with LGUs, the service is only dedicated to them, but our real aim is that if you have a good village hall, the barangay captains will be more enticing to serve our constituents,” Sinarimbo stressed.
Chief Precious Johanney Biruar of Nituan said, “kami ay sobrang masaya dahil sa dami ng mga barangays sa BARMM, isa kami sa priorities, hindi lang promise, kundi structure na talaga ang darating sa amin. Maraming salamat sa BARMM government sa pamumuno ni Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim at maraming salamat din kay MILG Minister Atty Naguib Sinarimbo.”
Meanwhile, Mayor Cahar Ibay signified his commitment to providing better services to their constituents.
“Itong mga proyektong ibibigay ninyo sa amin ay pagbubutihin namin, alagaan at mas lalo pa namin pagagandahin—iyong po ang commitment namin. Tama po kayo Minister Atty Sinarimbo [na] kapag maganda ang barangay hall, kaayaya sa ating mga kababayan para mag punta ng barangay,” Ibay said. (Majid Nur/BIO)
