Bilang paghahanda sa nalalapit na Barangay at Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections sa Mayo 14, 2018, pinaaalalahanan ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang lahat ng barangay na isumite ang kanilang annual report hinggil sa naging paggamit nila sa pondo ng SK bago mag-Marso 15, 2018.
Sinabi ni DILG Officer-in-Charge Eduardo M. Ano na dapat masiguro na ang pondong nakalaan sa SK ay nagamit nang makatwiran para sa kapakanan at benepisyo ng mga kabataan.
“Bilang mga lingkod bayan, nararapat lamang na ipaalam ng barangay sa mga mamamayan kung paano nila ginastos ang pondong nakalaan para sa mga kabataan,” pahayag ni Ano.

As the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region X ushers another year of program implementation, Regional Director Arnel M. Agabe emphasizes quality over quantity in prioritizing projects under the Assistance to Municipalities (AM).
Agabe made this statement during the recently concluded AM Program Regional Briefing and Re-Prioritization (Project Revision) Workshop at Grand Caprice, Cagayan de Oro City.
“Local chief executives (LCEs) could limit their AM projects to just one to two instead of having so many projects. It would be better if they just identify a couple of projects with greater impact to your beneficiaries,” Agabe said.
"Do not believe individuals claiming that they could appoint you as OIC-barangay and local officials."
This was the warning of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) 10 Regional Director Arnel M. Agabe to the local government officials as there have been reported incidents on groups who claim that they could appoint officials under a federal system of government or revolutionary government (RevGov), in exchange for money or favors.
Based on the DILG Central Office’s advisory issued, these groups assert that they are affiliated or permitted by the government or the DILG to undergo this step in the campaign for federalism or RevGov.
This was stressed by Local Government Monitoring and Evaluation Division (LGMED) Chief Digna R. Herrera of the DILG Region II in her welcome remarks during the back to back workshop conducted by the Regional Office for the LGUs.
