Bangsamoro government Chief Minister Ahod “Al Haj Murad” Ebrahim has designated Ameen Andrew Alonto as the new Officer-in-Charge Executive Director of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao’s (BARMM) Bureau of Public Information (BPI).

Former chief information chief Dr. Norodin Salam, who will be assigned to another position, turned over the post to Alonto Wednesday, May 6.

Prior to his designation as the new BPI info chief, Alonto worked as an executive assistant at the Bangsamoro government’s Office of the Cabinet Secretary.

This was after his stint in the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) and Regional Legislative Assembly of the defunct-Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

Alonto said he looks forward to work with the regional info group, and hopes to bring in his years of experience in the peace process and communication work in leading BPI.
