The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has turned over three infrastructure projects  to the local government of Tabuan Lasa in Basilan last Wednesday.

The turnover coincided with the celebration of the town’s founding anniversary with the theme “Dugaing Dugaing Bangsa: Hambuuk Maksud ( Different Tribes: One Mission.)

The three projects are the following:  a P50-million 3.5-kilometer Lanawan Kaum Purnak road at the village of Lanawan, the P15-million level 2 water system project and a P5-million finger wharf.

ARMM Public Works Secretary Don Loong said that the road has a width of five meters and will form part of the major road network in the municipality.

The P15-million water system project is aimed to free the people from their burden of buying potable water in Maluso, Isabela and even in Zamboanga city.

The mini wharf is also expected to contribute to the economic advancement of the town.

Aside from the three infrastructure projects, around 1,000 sacks of rice were also distributed to residents of 12 villages here.

Mayor Muctar Junaid said that the rice distribution has been a tradition of the town during the observance of their founding anniversary since he assumed office as local chief executive nine years ago.

Junaid also expressed his gratitude to the ARMM for the infrastructure projects.  (Ely Dumaboc)
