ILOILO – Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. has committed to help the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in the routinely repair and maintenance of Iloilo District Jail in Brgy. Nanga, Pototan town.
The governor’s support came following the objection of the Department of Justice in the previous memorandum of agreement where BJMP-6 was supposed to shoulder all the expenses.
The Iloilo District Jail, previously known as Iloilo Provincial Integrated Jail, was slowly turned over to BJMP-6 in 2012.
ILOILO – The construction of the longest farm-to-market road in the whole of Visayas is up for bidding next month.
The bidding process will finally commence after the provincial government received the letter of no objection from World Bank.
ILOILO – The provincial government here is urging the national government agencies running after illegal fishers to be aggressive and relentless in their campaign too.
This developed after the Iloilo Provincial Bantay Dagat single-handedly apprehended the third Danish seine operator that resurfaced in Carles on Monday.
Onboard fishing vessel JenJun-1, the task force led by SPO1 Gilbert Piedad caught eight fishermen using the outlawed super hulbot-hulbot in the marine waters of Gigantes Norte.
ILOILO – The Department of Health (DOH) has declared Iloilo as a Lymphatic Filariasis Free province as a result of its successful mass drug administration since November 2008.
Iloilo was among the 16 provinces in the Philippines that the DOH recognized as Lymphatic Filariasis Free during the awarding ceremonies for Gawad Kalusugan held in SMX Convention Center in Pasay City last February 20.
ILOILO – For the past five years, Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. has spent P49.1-million in construction of water systems as part of his commitment to improve the accessibility of the public to clean and safe drinking water.
