Two municipal mayors and a vice mayor were chosen as outstanding government workers by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) in the Bangsamoro autonomous region for this year.
Dominador Gonzales, Jr., officer-in-charge of the CSC-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) told the media on Wednesday that Mayor Nashiba Gandamra Sumagayan of Taraka in Lanao del Sur, Hanie Bud of Maluso in Basilan, and Vice Mayor Ali Lawi Sumandar of Piagapo also in Lanao del Sur have topped this year’s regional search for outstanding government workers by the Commission.
Gonzales said they were chosen as outstanding public servants based on their performance as municipal officials.
Both Sumagayan and Bud were recipients of the CSC’s Pag-asa Awards for their efficient management of their respective local government units.
Taraka and Maluso have been consistent awardees of the prestigious Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG)
The grant of SGLG to deserving LGUs is a yearly nationwide activity of DILG, premised on “best practices” of recipients, sound fiscal management and active peace and security initiatives.
Sumandar is recipient of the CSC’s Dangal ng Bayan award for 2020, according to Gonzales.
Gonzales said a bloc of employees in the Mindanao State University in Marawi City — the Gandingan Group, which has been helping push MSU’s operation as Mindanao’s largest state-run academic institution forward — was also named Pag-asa awardee under the group category of the search.
“These awardees qualified for the awards based on criteria set by the Civil Service Commission,” Gonzales said.
An employee of the Social Social Security System in Sulu, Sitti Alhada Abayan, was also chosen to receive the Dangal ng Bayan award.
“We in CSC-BARMM are thankful to all those who helped us facilitate the commission’s search for outstanding government workers in the Bangsamoro region for this year,” Gonzales said. (With agencies)
