VP Binay, Aklan LGUs sign MOA on housing, Pag-IBIG membership

by Venus G. Villanueva

KALIBO, Aklan, January 16 (PIA6) -- Government employees in Aklan renting apartments or other kinds of dwelling will soon have houses of their own through the LGU Housing Program, which was recently formalized with the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) by Vice President Jejomar Binay who is also the Chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), several mayors of Aklan, and Atty. Darlene Marie B. Berberabe, Chief Executive Officer of Pag-IBIG Fund.

The MOA Signing was held January 13 at the 3rd Floor of the Kalibo Municipal Building and attended by mayors of Aklan, municipal and barangay officials of Kalibo, and the local media.

VP Binay was in Aklan on January 13 to grace Kalibo’s Sto. Niño Ati-atihan Festival. On hand to welcome him before the MOA-signing were Kalibo Mayor William Lachica, Aklan Governnor Carlito S. Marquez and Kalibo’s elected officials and department heads.

With Binay were former Senator Ernesto Maceda, Pag-IBIG officials and staff of the provincial officer here, and mayors of nearby Antique and Capiz provinces.

Binay said the MOA-signing for the LGU Housing Program is a manifestation that LGUs all over the Philippines are willing to help each other.

“Paying P2,000 a month could already enable a government employee to own his own house worth P375,000,” Binay said.

The mayors also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Vice President and the Pag-IBIG CEO for the inclusion of job orders hired by LGUs as Pag-IBIG members. (JCM/VGV PIA 6 Aklan)
