DAR-Zambo. Norte implements P5.35-M farm-to-market road in Mutia town

By Mary May A. Abellon

MUTIA, Zamboanga del Norte – A groundbreaking ceremony signaling the start of the farm-to-market road (FMR) concreting project of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR)-Zamboanga del Norte in this town has been held recently.

This road project, which will benefit 133 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and 2,683 non-ARBs from Poblacion to Barangay Diland, has been alloted P5.35 million under DAR’s Bottoms-up Budget (BuB), Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB) with some counterpart funds from the munipal government.

In his mesaage, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Mohammad Dassan L. Adju appealed to the residents to protect and take care of the projects given them by the government.

“This is not the end of our partnership in development with this groundbreaking ceremony or after the completion of this project, but this is just the beginning,” Adju said.

“It’s really difficult to bring development in the community. We will first pass through many rugged roads and we will encounter many obstacles,” he streesed adding “the problem [that may arise] after the completion of this project is how to maintain it and the role of every resident will now start.”

“In DAR, if we can see that there’s a development and cooperation in the community, we will give more and more projects,” he assured.

Mayor Arthur C. Tenorio, on the other hand, said: “Our major problem here in Mutia, since 1960 from its birth until now, is the road concreting.”

He then expressed his gratitude to the DAR for the road concreting project hoping that there will be more projects his municipality will receive from the national government.
