Basilan Gov. Jum Akbar has expressed elation that President Benigno Simeon Aquino, III has granted her request for funding of a road concreting project in the province.

This, as President Aquino, through his special project, has released P20 million to concrete a road linking the municipalities of Al-Barka and Tipo-Tipo.

Akbar, on behalf of the Basileños, has expressed her heartfelt thanks and gratitude to President Aquino for the realization of the road concreting project.
Akbar said the project covers three-kilometer stretch of the provincial road section from Barangay Magcawa, Al-Barka town up to the adjacent municipality of Tipo-Tipo.

The completion of the project would spur economic activity as it would hasten the transport of farm products as well as the delivery of basic services in the two far-flung towns, Akbar said.

Akbar led the groundbreaking ceremony held last Friday that signaled the start of the road concreting project.

Akbar was joined by some provincial, municipal and military officials in the groundbreaking ceremony.

Akbar said that more development projects will be implemented in the province for the benefit of the Basileños.
