BARMM sets up public assistance center


COTABATO CITY: Bangsamoro constituents will now have easier access to programs and services of the Bangsamoro government with the launching of the Bangsamoro People’s Center last Friday. The center is part of the Ministry of the Interior and Local Government’s (MILG-BARMM) initiatives in bringing the Bangsamoro government closer to the people.

Naguib Sinarimbo, MILG-BARMM minister, on Tuesday said the center will cater to the needs of the Bangsamoro people, especially those not working in the bureaucracy. The center is located inside the Bangsamoro Government Center in Cotabato City and is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday to Friday. One of the center’s purpose is to assist those who have official transactions with the other Bangsamoro government’s ministries/offices but are not familiar with the Bangsamoro Government Center.

Bangsamoro chief Minister Ahod Al Haj Murad Ebrahim, together with Minister Sinarimbo, led a ribbon-cutting also on Friday. Also present during the ceremony were officials from the Department of the Interior and Local Government Allyn Lopez, Pablo de Castro, Nelia Abalos, Justine Joyce Figueroa and Norman Aparente, and Guiamel Ali, chairman of the Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society.
