Pero sa karon, tawhay na kaayo ang sistema sa among transportasyon,” he added. From the usual four hours of traversing the bumpy roads before, Kaka said “tungod sa dalan nga gihatag sa amo sa gobyerno, di na kaabot og oras maka-abot na mi diri sa among barangay gikan sa highway.” The infrastructure projects in Sarangani continues to better the lives of every Sarangan through Governor Solon’s Sulong Imprastraktura initiative with the support of Deputy Speaker Congressman Rogelio Pacquiao, Vice Governor De Peralta, Senator Manny Pacquiao, and all the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.
