Cotabato City (August 7, 2020) – To inform the public on the programs and activities it is undertaking, the Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG) launched its radio program dubbed ‘Radyo Sindaw’ on Thursday, August 6.
Derived from a Maguindanaoan word which means ‘light’, MILG Minister Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo said, “ang Sindaw ay sumisimbolo ng isang maliwanag at maayos na gobyerno, dahil ‘yon ang kailangan natin.”[Sindaw symbolizes a bright and good government, which is what we need.]
Sinarimbo also said that through the program, MILG will provide series of modular lectures on vital topics on local governance such as local legislation, local planning and budgeting, and barangay governance, among others.
“This will enable us to continue to capacitate our LGUs despite the restriction on face to face workshops as a result of the pandemic,” he said, noting that the first series of lectures will focus on barangay governance.
Furthermore, Sinarimbo said the radio program will also “feature some of the excellent local chief executives or good practices of LGUs in the Bangsamoro so that it may be replicated by other LGUs.”
Radyo Sindaw, hosted by Ms. Irene Gonzales, airs on DXMS 882 Khz and live on MILG’s official Facebook page every Thursday and Friday at 6:00-7:00 PM. (Bureau of Public Information)
