Dagdag kita, bawas traffic! ARMM turns over public market to Lanao del Sur town
The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has constructed a P20-million public market in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur, which could provide livelihood to the families displaced by the Marawi siege and lessen traffic congestion in the town.
Governor Mujiv Hataman has led the turnover of the public market in a ceremony on September 9.
The 1,200-square meter market, which features both wet and dry areas, will cater to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) of the 2017 Marawi siege.
Saguiaran Mayor Macmod Muti said the establishment of a public market not just provides livelihood for the IDPs, but also resolves the problem of traffic in the municipality.
“Malaking tulong ang pagpapatayo ng public market dahil kailangang kailangan natin ito. Bukod sa matutulungan natin ang mga IDPs ng Marawi, malulutas din nito ang matinding traffic sa Saguiaran dahil mayroon nang isahan na palengke,” he said.
