The Bangsamoro government has formed an office to administer the 63 barangays in North Cotabato which are now part of the Bangsamoro region.
Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) Executive Secretary Abdulraof Macacua facilitated Tuesday, June 30, the oath-taking ceremony of the members of the newly-created Development Coordinating Office (DCO) led by Administrator Mohammad Kelie Antao.
BARMM Chief Minister Ahod “Al Haj Murad” Ebrahim who was present in the ceremony said, “This embarks our plans in development programs in the area.”
He said the swearing into office of the DCO officials was delayed due to coronavirus disease pandemic.
