New brgy complexes hope of Marawi, says Vice Gov Adiong

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–The newly built barangay complexes inside the city’s most affected area (MAA) are seen to symbolize the hope of the siege-affected residents here.

Vice Governor Mohammad Khalid Raki-in Adiong highlighted that despite the suffering of the citizens due to the siege four years ago, development is taking place which is reflected through the completion of the construction of four barangay complexes in Barangays Datu Naga, Datu sa Dansalan, Moncado Kadingilan and West Marinaut.

“Ito ay simbolismo ng pag-asa dito sa City of Marawi na sa nagdaang trahedya dito, kahit tumagal but at least, mayroon na tayong ganitong facilities,” he said.

[This is the symbolism of hope here in the City of Marawi that with the tragedy that has occurred, although it took time at least, we already have these facilities.]

With the successful launching of the four infrastructures, the vice governor conveyed his thanks to Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Secretary and Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) Chairperson Eduardo Del Rosario who continues to push the rehabilitation of the city.

Adiong also thanked the congressmen who lobbied for the passing of the Compensation Bill which is seen to be significant to the citizens who long to return to MAA.

“We hope maipasa na rin ito sa Senate sa lalong madaling panahon para makapagsimula ang lahat ng ating kababayan na nasiraan ng bahay,” he said.

[We hope that this will also be passed in the Senate soonest so that all of the citizens who have their houses damages can already start.]

Meanwhile, Adiong called on the constituents to be patient as the government is striving to rehabilitate the city.

“Maghintay lang po tayo. Habaan po natin ang ating pasensya dahil unti-unti na nating naaabot ang ating mga hinaing na makabalik dito sa ground zero,” he said. [Let us just wait. Let us extend our patience because we are slowly reaching our desire of returning here in the ground zero.] (CRG/PIA-Lanao del Sur)
