Vice Gov Adiong apologizes to Mayor Regencia over delay in pullout of evacuees from Iligan City

Lanao del Sur Vice Governor Mamintal Bombit Adiong Jr apologized to Iligan City Mayor Celso Regencia for the delay in the pullout of the evacuees staying in the city.

The Iligan politiko earlier said he wanted the pullout of evacuees in all evacuation centers in the city completed by January 31.

“This is the time when the Department of Health (DoH) services for the evacuation centers will end and the city government does not have the available health personnel for IDPs (internally displaced persons),” Regencia said.

But Adiong said the provincial government needs more time to prepare temporary shelters for the evacuees.

“We apologize to the city government of Iligan for this delay, but we need more time. We still lack temporary shelters especially in Sagonsongan. Where are we going to let the remaining homeless IDPs stay?” Adiong asked.#
