THE municipality of Naawan in Misamis Oriental has inaugurated its new P5 million worth public market last week in its aim to cater the growing customers of the town.
Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano said the new public market is “sophisticated and modernized,” which will ensure convenient shopping for the public.
The one-storey building has 14 stalls, to accommodate tenants of dry goods, rice trading, and eateries, but Emano said he plans to add another floor to the building to transfer the wet market to the new market.
“We thank the Provincial Government and the leadership of Governor Bambi in realizing this project, which only used to be a dream of our constituent. We expect that the province will pour more projects in our small town,” the governor said.
The Provincial Government also poured in about P3.8 million for the covered court of the Naawan Central School, a part of the total P13.2 million worth of infrastructure projects turned over to not only Naawan but also in the municipality of Lugait.
The Kaluknayan Elementary School in Kaluknauyan, Lugait town inaugurated its new two classroom building worth P19 million.
