Sibulan builds better roads for Sibulanons
By Rachelle M. Nessia
Dumaguete City (27 November) -- Four infrastructure projects that aim to provide wider and better roads for Sibulanons have already been completed while 12 more are still ongoing.
Sibulan Information Officer Concepcion Rosales said that the completed four infra projects amounted to P6,665,283.47 while the ongoing projects amount to over P2 million.
The ongoing projects include the concreting of Calabnugan Barangay Road costing P450,000; concreting of Balugo Barangay Road costing P500,000; and the construction of Municipal Travellers Inn amounting to P1,200,000.
Meanwhile, Army checkpoints in Iligan City are expected to increase security measures along the road connecting the cities of Iligan and Marawi, in front of the 104th Infantry Brigade camp at Barangay Maria Cristina of the city, attracting varied reactions from the people in the area.
A commuter complained claiming that there was discrimination as the checkpoint stopped and inspected their vehicle upon seeing the occupants to be Maranaos. It was argued that there was a seeming bias against the group that can provoke resentment and was further considered to violate Human Rights. On the other hand, many local folks particularly from Iligan City welcomed the checkpoints as it was viewed to provide them more security. (PIA/rmn) [top]
