President Benigno S. Aquino III’s visit to Tawi-Tawi is manifestation of his administration’s commitment in attaining inclusive growth especially those in the far-flung areas, a Palace official said.

In a radio interview on Saturday, Deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that the administration not only focuses in Metro Manila in building infrastructures and other projects but also in the rural areas.

“Yung sa Tawi-Tawi, mapatutunayan din ang laging sinasabi ng Pangulo na ‘no one will be left behind’ at talagang ang itinutulak po natin ay lahat nakasakay doon sa Daang Matuwid,” Valte said during the interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.

“I think, marami sa inyo ang magugulat na lalo ngayon ongoing doon ang inspection ng Pangulo sa mga tulay, ‘yung mga naging programa natin diyan.”

“At least, naipapakita naman natin na mula ho dito sa Maynila, sa sentro, hanggang doon sa mga malalayong lugar sa Pilipinas ay talagang pinipilit ng administrasyong maabot at madala rin doon ang mga magagandang programa ng Daang Matuwid.”

The president arrived in Tawi-Tawi Saturday morning and inspected the Sanga-Sanga-Lapid-Lapid Bridges in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi.

The President also met with local officials of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) to report on the administration’s accomplishments in the region.
