MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur — Bangsamoro constituents will now have easier access to the programs and services of the Bangsamoro Government following the launching of the Bangsamoro People’s Center on Friday, November 22, in Cotabato City.
The center is part of the Ministry of Interior and Local Government’s (MILG-BARMM) initiatives to bring the Bangsamoro Government closer to the people.
Lawyer Naguib Sinarimbo, MILG-BARMM minister, said the center will cater to the needs of the Bangsamoro people, especially those not working in the bureaucracy.
The center is located inside the Bangsamoro Government’s Center in Cotabato City and is open to the public between 8AM-5PM from Monday to Friday.
One of the center’s purpose is to assist those who have official transactions with the other Bangsamoro Government’s ministries/offices but are not familiar with the Bangsamoro Government Center.
To avoid the inconvenience of being tossed from one office to another, Sinarimbo said, “meron kaming staff na sasama sa kanila para ituro kung saan yung opisina.”
“Kung meron naman po kayong papel na gustong ipaabot sa ibang ministry/office, pwede niyong i-drop dito at kami na ang maghahatid doon sa opisina,” he added.
Sinarimbo also said his ministry plans to move towards E-Governance.
E-Governance means using technology to strengthen the relationship between the government and its people.
Citing an example, Sinarimbo said those barangay captains in the far-flung municipalities of the Bangsamoro region who needs certificate of recognition may send their queries online. “Para hindi na kayo gumastos na pumunta dito, ipadala niyo nalang sa amin online,” Sinarimbo said.
Sinarimbo said the Bangsamoro people can access the ministry’s website thru mlg.bangsamoro.gov.ph.(Bureau of Public Information)
