MAGUINDANAO – President Duterte will visit Buluan town on Friday to attend the launch of the 4.5-megawatt biomass power plant and hold a dialogue with local officials.
“The President would like to see the facility and observe how it will operate using non-petroleum fuel,” Maguindanao Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu said yesterday.
Mangudadatu said the peace process in Mindanao and the anti-drug campaign are among the issues to be discussed with local officials.
“We support that campaign,” he said, referring to the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.
Mangudadatu said they are planning a simple but warm welcome for the President. Duterte’s last visit to Maguindanao was during the campaign.
Mangudadatu’s younger brother former Buluan mayor Datu Ibrahim was Duterte’s campaign manager in the province.
“His visit will be an honor for Muslim, Christian and lumad people in Maguindanao,” said Datu Khadafeh, a member of the regional assembly in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
