COTABATO Governor Emmylou J. Talino-Mendoza has vowed to continue basic services to villages that are now under the Special Geographical Area of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
The governor, who attended the inauguration of the Bangsamoro Transition Authority in Cotabato City last week, pledged to continue helping the 63 villages even though they are no longer part of the province.
Recently, the province and the Bangsamoro government held a vaccination campaign against the coronavirus among the residents of the 63 villages.
“It is my way of showing of my profound gratitude to all Bangsamoro people, who for years have supported my administration as governor of the province of Cotabato,”she said. “This is a continued reminder of a unified cooperation and love for Mindanao.”
