(SDN) — Various infrastructure projects of the Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG) are nearing completion.
MILG Minister Naguib G. Sinarimbo related this to members of the news media and the public as the ministry continued its monitoring of the ongoing construction.
The projects consist of 11 municipal buildings, four Philippine National Police (PNP) Stations, and 64 barangay halls in different provinces of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
Observers said the series of infrastructure projects under the Bangsamoro government headed by Chief Minister Al-Hajj Murad Ebrahim has never been seen during the unlamented Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
BARMM, the new political entity (NPE) created through the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB), replaced and abolished the ARMM which existed for 20 years.
“The Municipal buildings, Police Stations, Barangay Hall projects of our Ministry are now nearing completion across the different provinces of the region,” Sinarimbo said.
He said aside from the mentioned projects aforementioned projects MILG is also set to construct additional 56 barangay (village) halls, five public markets, and threw MILG provincial office buildings which have already been bidded out.
Sinarimbo, spokesman of BARMM, assured that “more municipal buildings, public markets, police stations, Tourism Centers, water systems, and barangay halls will soon be implemented.”

In North Cotabato, meanwhile, a team from the MILG traveled on a weekend to some of the 63 villages that joined the BARMM through a referendum for an on-site inspection of the Bangsamoro government’s projects.
The 63 villages are collectively dubbed Special Geographic Area (SAG).
Projects in the BARMM’s SAG:
Sinarimbo said the MILG team “inspected the water impoundment that we will rehabilitate under the SDF (Special Development Fund). When completed it will service farmers in four barangays of the 63 barangays from North Cotabato that joined the BARMM.”
He said there are two barangay halls in Lower Baguer and Datu Binasing, two of the 63 barangays, currently being built as well as an ongoing construction of roads in the same barangays.
“The following week, we will break grounds and start the construction of additional 44 barangay halls for the other barangys in the Special Geographic Area. Within the year, all the 63 barangays will have new barangay halls,” the MILG chief assured. (✓)
