Salay barangays continue to benefit thru SBDP

CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental – Groundbreaking ceremonies of Local Government Support Fund – Support to Barangay Development Program (LGSF-SBDP) were held for the Improvement of Water Supply System in four Barangays of the municipality of Salay from October 14 to 15, 2021.

Bunal, Tinagaan, Yungod, and Membuli are among the 40 SBDP 2021 beneficiary barangays in Misamis Oriental, each receiving Php20 million. The LGDF-SBDP funding will go toward improving the water supply system as well as other farm-to-market road initiatives.

The Barangay beneficiaries recalled and praised the Army’s efforts over the years in conducting Community Support Operations (CSP) in their areas, which paved the way for the water supply system and road improvements to be completed. They also praised the national government and local administration, through the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) and the Local government, for improving the water supply system and constructing road projects that are desperately needed by residents, as these projects will undoubtedly help them have potable clean water not only for drinking but also for growing and sustaining their livelihood.

The Municipal Mayor, Hon. Angelo G Capistrano Jr, believes that the completion of these projects will undoubtedly contribute to improving Salay’s peace and order situation, thereby paving the way for progress and development. These will also eliminate the presence of armed locals, as their residents have showed support and cooperation for the government’s efforts.

Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Ricky L Canatoy, Commanding Officer 58IB, is pleased about the implementation of the stated water system projects, believing that it will have a significant impact on the unit’s overall mission accomplishment. “Insurgency is about governance, who governs best, wins the war. The commitment of the local government units, national and local government agencies and other stakeholders is crucial in the intensification of sustaining this program. And I am positive this project will be a success, with the help and cooperation from the residents.”

Meanwhile, Commanding Officer 58IB, Lt. Col. Ricky L Canatoy, is delighted with the installation of the aforementioned water system projects, thinking that it will have a substantial impact on the unit’s overall mission achievement. “Governance is at the heart of insurgency; whoever rules best wins the conflict.” In order to intensify and sustain this program, local government units, national and local government agencies, and other stakeholders must all commit. And I am confident that with the locals’ aid and cooperation, this initiative will be a success.”

Each ceremony was spearheaded by the Local Government Unit of Salay, LGU of each barangay, the DILG Misamis Oriental, MLGOO, the PNP, and the 58th Infantry Dimalulupig Battalion.
