The Peace, Law Enforcement and Development Support Teams inspected the ongoing implementation of Barangay Development Projects in Zamboanga del Norte.

The joint AFP and PNP personnel of 97th Infantry (KALASAGLAHI) Battalion and Zamboanga del Norte Provincial Police Office are presently deployed in Sergio Osmeña Sr, Zamboanga del Norte as sustainment teams in support to the Retooled Community Support Program of the government to insulate cleared barangays from possible recovery efforts of the Communist Terrorist Groups.

“For 2021, two barangays of Sergio Osmeña Sr, specifically, Barangay Bagumbayan and Nazareth, were beneficiaries of the P20Million BDP fund through the efforts of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict,” said Lt. Col. Nolasco Coderos Jr, Commanding Officer, 97IB.

Through a series of consultation and dialogues with the constituents, the proposal for the utilization of the said funds for the Concreting of Farm-to-Market Roads of the two barangays were approved.

“These projects are vital in providing long-term solutions in addressing the root causes of insurgency in the province which will eventually uplift the lives of its people,” said Brig. Gen. Leonel Nicolas, Commander, 102nd Infantry (IGSOON) Brigade.

“We are now at the final stage for the total defeat of the Western Mindanao Regional Party Committee as their strength is now dwindling. The protection of these projects is an integral part of our campaign to ensure peace and promote development in the entire Zamboanga Peninsula,” Brig. Gen. Nicolas added.

There is a total of 108 various infrastructure, agricultural, social services and other BDP projects that the Brigade is presently monitoring in close coordination with other government agencies and local government units in the 82 beneficiary barangays of Zamboanga Peninsula and Misamis Occidental.
