Celso: Duterte is building Mindanao


House of Representatives Committee Chairman on Public Works and Highways and Congressman Celso Lobregat expressed his gratitude to President Rodrigo Duterte for putting priority to the major infrastructure projects in the entire Mindanao region.

Congressman Lobregat said that similar to Zamboanga City, other cities including provinces in the entire Mindanao region get a piece of the pie in the needed infrastructures and developmental projects which are vital for progress and development in the countryside.

Lobregat said that based on the referrals and other documentations which pass thru his committee in Congress, almost all of these legislations were given positive feedbacks and some of it were already materialized with the approval of both the lower and upper house as these are all being supported by the president himself.

In this historic era of infrastructure in the region, Lobregat said that this is the first in any administration that the national government has poured bulk of resources to Mindanao.

Under the Duterte administration’s Build,Build,Build program, billions of pesos were allocated to Mindanao in order to realize the priority projects of each and every locality.

"This has never happened in any past administration, Mindanao today is indeed very lucky to have our very own president who really cares and understands our plight, we are very thankful to President Duterte, he is a former mayor like me, so he knows what projects we really need," Lobregat said.

In Zamboanga City alone, Duterte's Build,Build,Build Program is implementing over P3-billion worth of projects implemented by the DPWH, this does not include yet the Outside Projects which are due for implementation this year.

Lobregat revealed that as early as now they have already prepared and submitted the plans and projects for 2019 as well. (Dexter Yap)
