ZAMBOANGA CITY - The municipal government of Maimbung in the southern province of Sulu has formally turned over 10 housing units to selected poor families who are beneficiaries of the Go Negosyo Housing Project and the Provincial Government.

Mayor Shihla Hayudini and Governor Sakur Tan led the June 8 handover of the colorful housing units to the deserving beneficiaries of the benevolent project.


Hayudini thanked Ginggay Malvar, the Go Negosyo Senior Adviser for Agripreneurship and Mindanao Development Programs; and Tan for subsidizing the housing program in the historical town, which is also the seat of the Sultanate of Sulu.


The mayor also provided one sack of rice and grocery items for each of the beneficiaries of the project. “To start their life in their new homes, the Municipal Government provided them with groceries as housewarming packages to start anew,” she said.


Hayudini also thanked the governor for the support of the provincial government on the housing project. “As the father of modern Sulu, his presence is an added inspiration and recognition of his developmental efforts for the sake of the province and Maimbung in particular,” she said.


The mayor did not say how much was the cost of the project, but claimed that “a sizable sum of the Go Negosyo construction funds for the housing project were subsidised by Governor Tan” in which she duly acknowledged with “profound appreciation on behalf of the Maimbung LGU and the people.”


She repeatedly thanked and praised Go Negosyo and Malvar for keeping “Sulu and Maimbung in their line of sight for meaningful projects and advocacies.”
