PBBM rallies key agencies to back faster distribution of lands to Zambo farmers


President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. rallied key government agencies on Friday to speed up land distribution in Zamboanga Peninsula to uplift people’s lives and boost agricultural productivity.

“Sa ating mga register of deeds, ganun din. Sila’y talagang malaking bahagi sa ating mga ginagawa. Sa Land Management Services ng DENR at sa Land Bank of the Philippines at maging sa ating mga opisyal ng iba’t-ibang lokal na pamahalaan dito sa Zamboanga, tuloy lang po tayo sa pagkilos at sa pagtutulungan,” President Marcos said during the distribution of land titles and Ceremonial Turnover of Support Services support services in Zamboanga Del Norte Convention Center in Dipolog City on Friday.

“Kasabay ng aking pasasalamat sa inyo ay ang muling pagbibigay ng direktiba na higit pang pabilisin ang proseso ng pamimigay ng titulo at serbisyo sa ating mga benepisyaryo. Sa ating Agrarian Reform Program, wakasan natin ang kahirapan ng ating mga magsasaka laban sa banta ng pagkagutom, laban sa pagkabaon sa utang, at laban sa kahirapan,” he stated.

The President hoped that through the Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) distribution and release of assistance to beneficiaries, farmers in the region will be inspired to help ensure food security in the country and encourage their children to venture into farming.

The President told the gathering that he is visiting different parts of the country to personally see the handover of assistance to farmers and fisherfolk and assess people’s condition at the local level.

President Marcos distributed more than 4,900 land titles and assistance to farmers from Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, and Zamboanga Sibugay.

The President also turned over more than Php15 million worth of farming tools and equipment benefiting 15,773 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) to increase their productivity. | PND
