MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–Some five villages in the most affected area (MAA) here now had power lines ready to electrify residences.

This, after the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM), the City Government of Marawi, and the Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (LASURECO) formally led the switch-on ceremony Wednesday, May 18, signifying the energization of barangays Datu Naga, Moncado Colony, Sangcay Dansalan, Moncado Kadingilan, and Norhaya Village.

TFBM Chairperson Secretary Eduardo Del Rosario stressed that this conveyed how the government saw the necessity of having electricity.

“Ang pagkapower up ay isang malaking indikasyon na ang power infrastructure ay nabibigyan natin ng priority kasi napakaimportante na bago bumalik ang ating mga kababayan na nadisplace ay mayroon na silang nakaabang na kuryente,” he said.

[The powering up is a big indication that we are giving priority to power infrastructure because it is important that before our displaced fellowmen return, there is already awaiting electricity.]

While the situation is not yet the same in whole ground zero, the TFBM guaranteed that in coordination with LASURECO, the government will carry on its effort until all sectors of the ground zero will be given power.

Del Rosario further assured that there is no need to worry about the continuous implementation of the projects with the shift to the new administration in the next month.

“All the projects naman ginagawa ng implementing agencies, nasa kanila ang pondo at ito is expected to be completed within the year,” he said.

[All projects done by implementing agencies, they have the funds and these are expected to be completed within the year.] (CRG/PIA-Lanao del Sur)
