(SDN) — The Municipality of Guindulungan, Maguindanao, will host the first Integrated Public Terminal of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
It’s the first of such project by the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG), one of the BARMM’s line agencies.
Under the leadership of Minister Naguib G. Sinarimbo, the MILG has been implementing and providing the necessary funding for several construction projects, the so-called dividends or gains of peace through the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB). The Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) signed the CAB peace accord after over 17 years of negotiations.
The CAB ended the internecine war in Mindanao, over four decades of fratricidal war as both the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) — which signed the 1996 Final Peace Agreement (FPA) — and the MILF accepted autonomy, abandoning their struggle for independence.
The MILG head announced the signing of the deal for the public terminal.
“We signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Mayor of Guindulungan, Hon. Midpantao M. Midtimbag, Jr., for the construction of an Integrated Public Terminal along the Cotabato-GenSan road of his municipality. The public terminal will feature amenities for passengers such as ‘pasalubong’ and coffeeshops, public toilets and bath, and comfortable waiting area for passengers. While it is modern and convenient, it will still carry the distictive heritage of our region and its people,” said Sinarimbo.
“I have always known Tambunan as a marketplace of goods. We will help Tambunan regain its old glory by becoming once again a vibrant marketplace. Though, this time around, it will not only be a marketplace of goods, but ideas as well. And not just ideas, but good ideas such as good governance and moral governance. Onward, Guindulungan.”
He welcomed the idea that travelers will have a place to stop by for a glass of coffee while visiting “our hometowns” in “Sugod a Buayan.”
All over the areas of the BARMM infrastructure projects of the MILG are rising, with a few of them already completed.
It’s expected that in 2022 more building projects will be implemented. (EKU) — (✓)
