DPWH, overall champion in inter-agency friendship games
Cotabato City – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) emerged again as this year’s overall champion in the friendship games among agencies of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in celebration of the 113th Philippine civil service anniversary.
DPWH-ARMM was also the overall champion in last year’s inter-agency games. The agency garnered the highest accumulated points given its lead in almost all events.
The Regional Legislative Assembly (RLA) and the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) tied in the 1st runner up with either agency garnering 60.5 percents.
Officials and employees of DPWH-ARMM including the audience were in high spirit during Thursday’s awarding ceremony in Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex inside the ARMM compound, cheering: “Hindi lang pang-infra, pang-sports pa!”
Emil Sadain, DPWH-ARMM secretary, said their victory depict the dedication and morale of the agency’s workers.
ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) issued separate commendations this week, lauding DPWH-ARMM and Sadain for the prudent utilization of the agency’s 2012 generated savings.(BPI-ARMM/JoHenry)
