PANDAG, Maguindanao (BARMM) –— This small town in Maguindanao province is showing a good performance in the efforts of keeping itself as a strong supporter of BARMM’s (Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) “war on drugs.”
In his official FB account, BARMM-Member of the Parliament (MP) Khadafe “Toy” Mangudadatu proudly shared the “good news” about the LGU-Pandag, a town where his wife Zihan Mamalinta-Mangudadatu is currently the mayor.
According to a memorandum issued by the BARMM’s Ministry of Interior and Local Government (MILG), headed by Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo, identified the LGU-Pandag as one of the 15 local government units in BARMM that got “high adjectival rating” in terms of their “functionality” and “effectiveness” in dealing illegal drugs based on the prescribed guidelines and standards issued by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB).
All the fifteen BARMM LGUs were assessed and audited by the ADAC National Audit Team (ANT), according to the memorandum.

A netizen named Tarhata Kido, who posted the “photocopy” of the BARMM-MILG’s issued memorandum in her FB account today, praised the LGU-Pandag for receiving such accomplishment, of which she considered a clear proof of officials’ collective efforts in keeping the town a strong supporter of BARMM and President Rodrigo Duterte’s fight against illegal drugs. #DM
