Mayor Celso Lobregat yesterday morning led city and barangay officials in the inauguration of four projects worth P4.4 million in barangay Mariki, this city.
The mayor cut the ceremonial ribbon of the multi-purpose building amounting to P500,000, barangay hall worth P2.9 million, the police outpost worth P200,000 and the concrete footbridge costing P797,000.
In his speech, Lobregat told Mariki barangay chairwoman Hadja Palma Hassan he has already asked City Engineer Luis Despalo to make the assessment for the continuation of the concrete footbridge especially in the perimeter of the Mariki Elementary School.
Showing the perspective of the project to the barangay officials, the mayor said “this is my surprise to you that I will continue the concreting of the footbridge. This was started by my mother Mayor Maria Clara Lobregat because she wants the project to last a lifetime, since the footbridge made of lumber easily gets dilapidated and destroyed and poses harm to the people,” Lobregat said.
The mayor said it is not true what many of his critics are saying that he does not have projects. ”I hope you, the barangay council and the residents can relay this to them that this administration has many projects here in Mariki and other barangays.”
According to Lobregat, earlier he also inaugurated two school buildings with three-classroom each amounting to more than P3 million.
The chief executive said so that Rio Hondo barangay chairman Rasdie Mukaram will be happy he promised the construction of a new barangay hall worth millions of pesos.
Meanwhile, city police director Sr. Supt. Edwin de Ocampo assured the Mariki barangay leaders he will assign at least four policemen to man the police outpost in coordination with Task Force Zamboanga and will also direct the Zamboanga Mobile Group under Supt. Diomarie Albarico to conduct foot patrol in the area.
This, he said, will definitely reduce crime incidents in the area.
