Unresolved concerns lead to return of P9 M PAMANA fund
by Alfred Macalling

SADANGA, Mountain Province – A P9-million worth project funded under the Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (Pamana) program of the Office of the Presidential Assistant on the Peace Process has been returned to the national government because of unsolved issues on right of way, labor shortage, and negligence of contractors.

Mayor Jose A. Limmayog Jr. said the amount is part of the package of development projects programmed to finance various projects in the municipality but were not implemented because of issues that cropped up when works were supposed to begin.

Limmayog said these issues started in the previous administration. He said he started to iron out the problems by talking to affected lot owners but time was not on his side.

The affected projects are the construction of Pakang-Chalitawey communal irrigation system (CIS), Tokok- Churao- Napo CIS, Kabyangan-Karumshayan CIS and Sacasacan-Belwang farm-to-market road.

The fund, which was earmarked to address priority concerns of the municipality, was through the initiative of former mayor Gabino P. Ganggangan as part of the closure agreement between the Cordillera Peoples’ Liberation Army and the national government.

The fund is part of the P25.40M that was downloaded to the municipal government through a sub-memorandum of agreement between past municipal and provincial officials from the P34.50M Pamana fund earmarked for the municipality.

The return of unused fund is in compliance with a decision of the Supreme Court that ruled that the Disbursement Acceleration Program is unconstitutional.

Acting Gov. Bonifacio C. Lacwasan Jr. requested the Opapp for additional time for the completion of the projects but the Opapp denied the request due to the deadline imposed on the liquidation of Pamana projects.

“We regret to inform you that we will not be able to grant your request,” Opapp Usec. for Support Services and Pamana National Program Manager Ronald I. Flores stated in his letter to Lacwasan.
