ABALOS HANDA NANG PAMUNUAN ANG DILG

HANDANG-handa na si dating Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos, Jr. na pamunuan ang Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), na iniatas sa kanya ni incoming President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.

“I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. for trusting me with the Department of Interior and Local Government. At this time when there is a strong call for our nation’s unity, the DILG will play a paramount role in promoting peace and order and in bringing together our local government units,” pahayag ni Abalos.

Tiniyak din ni Abalos na aasisitihan niya ang bagong chief executive sa susperbisyon sa mga local governments.

“Rest assured that I will do my utmost to foster thriving, peaceful communities throughout our beloved country,” ayon kay Abalos.

Si Abalos na isang abogado ay nagsilbi bilang chairman ng MMDA sa ilalim ng administrasyon ng Pangulo Rodrigo Duterte, kung saan pinalitan niya ang namayapang si Danilo Lim na namatay noong Enero 2021.

Nitong Pebrero ay nagbitiw si Abalos bilang MMDA chief upang magsilbing national campaign manager ni Marcos Jr.

“I am extremely grateful to President Duterte for the trust and confidence in me to lead NCR during the most crucial time of the pandemic and for giving me the opportunity to serve.” dagdag pa ni Abalos.
