To be implemented is the P20 million farm-to-market artery linking the Nabundas and Datu Kilay Districts in Shariff Saidona town in Maguindanao’s second district by the Department of Public Works and Highways of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DPWH-ARMM).

Mujiv Hataman in Shariff Saidona and nearby Datu Piang, Datu Saudi, Mamasapano, Salibo and Mamasapano towns, all in the second district of Maguindanao is cleric Wahid Tundok.
