The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) of Zamboanga del Norte has recently granted authority to Governor Roberto Y. Uy to enter into a memorandum of agreement MOA with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for the concreting of the provincial road in the third district of the province.

In its regular session last Monday, the provincial board approved the resolution passed by Board Member Julius Napigquit, presiding officer pro-tempore, granting Uy the authority to ink a MOA with DILG for the concreting of a 1.3-kilometer provincial road at Barangay Malipot, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

As stipulated in the MOA, the DILG will fund the project through the Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (PAMANA) Pillar 3 project amounting to P15 million.

For its part, the provincial government shall extend technical assistance during the execution of the project to ensure transparency and accountability.

This project is the national government’s intervention for conflict-affected and vulnerable areas in support of the peace initiative pursued by the present administration.

The PAMANA is also part of the President Benigno S. Aquino III’s social contract as articulated in the Philippine Development Plan from 2011-2016 to achieve a comprehensive, just, peaceful and orderly community. — PIA
