Lanao del Sur governor thankful for PBBM’s aid to farmers, fisherfolk

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA) — Provincial Governor Mamintal Alonto Adiong Jr. expressed gratitude towards President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. for the aid extended to the farmers, fisherfolk, and families in Lanao del Sur.

The governor emphasized that government support is crucial during these challenging times of El Niño and the looming threat of La Niña in the coming months as these marginalized sectors face disruptions in their livelihood.

“We thank President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. for helping Lanao del Sur families, farmers, and fishermen. In these trying times of El Niño and the threat of La Niña in the next couple of months, when the marginalized sectors experience severe disruptions in their livelihood, they need government support most,” he stated.

Adiong received a P10 million cash aid from President Marcos during his visit to Maguindanao del Sur on May 23. The President’s visit aimed to assess the plight of farmers and fisherfolk and address their issues firsthand.

In his message, President Marcos reassured that his administration would monitor the situation in Mindanao and the well-being of its people to ensure the implementation of more effective measures tailored to address their needs.

He also directed national government agencies to collaborate closely with local government units to prepare for the onset of the La Niña phenomenon next month. (APB/PIA-10 Lanao del Sur)
