SULU – The Bangsamoro Region’s Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) took over Friday, March 4, the management and operation of the Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Region IX’s district office in Jolo, Sulu.
MOTC Minister Dickson Hermoso emphasized during turnover ceremony the computerization of driver’s license renewal and application, update of data system, and registration of vehicles in Sulu Province.
“Magco-computerize tayo ng lisensya…makukuha agad ‘yon. Ayaw ko ng lisensya na plastic pagkatapos walang laman ang data…ganoon din sa registration ng sasakyan,” Hermoso said in his speech.
“Serbisyuhan natin ang mga tao. Kung nandiyan sila sa labas nag-aantay (ay) gumawa kayo ng effort na malapitan niyo sila at magkaroon sila ng feeling na this is their office… Pagagandahin natin ang waiting lounge nila (at) itong opisina ninyo,” he added.
Minister Hermoso also assured that BARMM-issued licenses are authentic and can be used nationwide and no worries shall rise regarding the said matter.
LTO-IX Chief Abdelshan Amilassan handed over the key of responsibility to Anwar Upahm, director of Bangsamoro LTO, while Yosoff Amaw took over the responsibilities of outgoing Officer-in-Charge of LTO-IX Jolo District Office Taha Jailani.
Prior to the turnover ceremony, Minister Hermoso paid a courtesy visit to Sulu Governor Abdusakur Tan wherein LTO operations and management were discussed. (Alline Jamar Undikan/BIO)
