LANAO DEL SUR—The Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG) inaugurated a state-of-the-art, three-storey police station in Amai Manabilang, Lanao del Sur, on May 17.
During the turnover ceremony, PB Gen. Allan Cruz Nobleza, the Regional Director of the Police Regional Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (PRO-BAR), personally received the 6.25-million-peso facility from MILG Minister Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo.
Expressing gratitude for the ongoing support from the regional government, Gen. Nobleza assured attendees that his dedicated personnel are fully committed to safeguarding public safety.
“Asahan niyo po na mas lalo naming paiigtingin ang aming police visibility, ang aming trabaho para mas lalong matahimik itong Amai Manabilang,” Nobleza said.
The provision of this police station is part of the comprehensive infrastructure support provided by the Bangsamoro Government through MILG, aimed at strengthening security and improving incident response within the community.
Amai Manabilang, with an estimated land area of 54,000 hectares, is strategically located on the border of Bukidnon and Cotabato provinces, presenting a significant economic opportunity that Sinarimbo recognizes.
Sinarimbo emphasized that the geographical location of the town should serve as a gateway for mutual benefits and economic growth among its neighboring provinces.
“Yung boarders po should serve as connectivities where mutual opportunities can happen,” explained the lawyer.
Town Mayor Saidamen Leo Manabilang and Local Police Chief PLt Dann Alfonso Ducut expressed their appreciation to the regional government for this essential infrastructure. (Abdullah Matucan/BIO)
