Municipal Councilor Suharto Mabang, who also led the event, said the LGU and the Bangsamoro Government should strengthen their collaboration and coordination in implementing the latter’s development projects.
“Sana ang opisina ng BARMM at ang opisina ng Datu Abdullah Sangki ay magkaroon ng mas magandang ugnayan para sa ating mga constituents,” said Mabang.
