(SDN) — More building projects are being constructed in the Bangsamoro region.
The region, officially named Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) is comprised of the provinces of Basilan, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi, and the cities of Cotabato, Lamitan, and Marawi, as well as the Special Geographic Area (SGA) made up of 63 barangays or villages in North Cotabato that opted to be under BARMM jurisdiction. North Cotabato itself is not part of the region.
As a new political entity (NPE), the BARMM was established through the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) to implement the 2014 Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB).
Many construction projects in the BARMM are being implemented by the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government (MILG) headed by lawyer Naguib G. Sinarimbo, the interior minister.
The MILG construction projects include Municipal Halls, Philippine National Police (PNP) Stations, Public Markets, Public Terminals, Tourism Centers, Barangay Halls, as well as water desalination facilities in the water-starved island provinces of Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi, as well as water systems in mainland province of Lanao del Sur.
Last month of June, Sinarimbo inspected building projects in the municipality of Sapa-Sapa, Tawi-Tawi, a Municipal Hall, and earlier his team was in Barangay Simsiman, Pigkawayan Cluster of the SGA as he observed the progress of a Barangay Hall building project.
The MILG has lined up more construction projects, which are in the planning stage, while others apparently are ready for implementation.
No other time, observers have noted, Muslim Mindanao has enjoyed the MILG’s construction boom, a sign the 2014 CAB is working for the benefit of BARMM population. It is what Sinariimbo has said time and again the “dividends of peace.” (/)
