VILLANUEVA, MISAMIS ORIENTAL (PIA)–The Local Government of Villanueva and Cabinet Officer for Regional Development and Security (CORDS)-10 and Communications Secretary Martin Andanar led the inauguration of a 330-meter Barangay Road project worth P2.5 million and a turnover of a Bongo vehicle to Barangay Imelda, November 18.
As part of Villanueva town and the Duterte administration’s prioritization of building resilient infrastructure under the Build Build Build initiative, the road serves to connect the barangay to the main highway and make it more accessible for more economic opportunities.
“Nagpasalamat ta ug dako nga naa na pud mga projects na-implement sa atong barangay. Dako kaayo ni nga tabang,” said Barangay Imelda Captain Hermil Valledor.
(We are thankful for the projects implemented in our barangay, these are a huge help to all of us)
In addition to the road, a Bongo vehicle was also turned over to transport heavy materials and citizens from the barangay to the city, with previous barangays namely Barangay Poblacion 1, Poblacion 2, Poblacion 3, Looc, and Kimaya already receiving theirs.
Andanar personally attended the event to show the administration’s full support and commitment to the development of infrastructure accessibility, and good governance in the grassroots while discussing ways on how they can further provide communication assistance to the local government’s programs.
“Importante nga mahibaw-an sa tibuok nasud nga duna’y Villanueva nga lugar nga maayo ang pagdala sa mayor. It serves as an inspiration sa uban pang mga LGUs,” Andanar said.
(It is important for the country to be aware that there is a town called Villanueva, which is being led well by their mayor, this serves as an inspiration to the other LGUs)
For their part, Villanueva Municipal Mayor Jennie Uy Mendez thanked the administration and disclosed that this is only one of their many future infrastructure road projects in their municipality.
“Taliwala sa ka-busy ni Secretary Martin nakaabot siya diri sa Barangay Imelda. Wala sukad gikan sa Office of the President nakaabot diring dapit. Rest assured naa among suporta sa administrasyon,” she said.
(Despite Secretary Martin’s busy schedule, he has managed to visit us here in Barangay Imelda. Never before someone from the Office of the President has visited us here. Rest assured the administration has our support)
