MARAWI CITY, Philippines - Provincial officials welcomed as vote of confidence the grant by the Spanish government of P3 million cash assistance to a fledgling Lanao del Sur town for a public market.

Lanao del Sur Gov. Mamintal Adiong Jr. on Friday said the release of the grant, for the rehabilitation of the municipal market of Tamparan, by the Spanish government was a tacit indication of confidence on the local government unit of the municipality.

“That is for us, local officials, a tap on our shoulders,” Adiong said.

Adiong said Tamparan Mayor Topaan Disomimba received last week a check worth P3 million from the Spanish government through the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process.

The simple turnover rite was held at the conference hall of Adiong’s office in Marawi City.

“It is the residents of Tamparan, particularly the farmers and fisherfolks there, that stand to benefit from the rehabilitation of their municipal market,” Adiong said.

OPAPP’s turnover of the P3 million worth check to the mayor of Tamparan came just a week after the Office of Civil Defense in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (OCD-ARMM) awarded Adiong’s office with the Gawad Kalasag Award for outstanding performance in disaster risk reduction management.

Myrna Angot, executive director of OCD-ARMM, personally handed over to Adiong a citation plaque and P30,000 cash for his office as reward for the feat.

Angot also provided Adiong’s office with 39 pairs of life vests for members of Lanao del Sur’s provincial emergency and rescue team.

"This comes as a nice, happy surprise," Adiong said, referring to the award his office received from OCD-ARMM.
