The honorarium of the Barangay Nutrition Scholars (BNS) for the 1st quarter will also soon be distributed.
Governor Yevgeny Emano turned over some P1,683,000 for the 561 BNS in the province through the Provincial Health Office-Nutrition Division.
Each BNS will receive P3,000 covering their January-March honorarium.
"Gikan sa P9,000 matag tuig sa milabayng 20 ka tuig, nahimo kining P12,000 matag tuig sa kasamtangang administrasyon ni Governor Emano," the Capitol press briefer said.
Meanwhile, Emano announced that the mid-year bonus of the Capitol employees will be released the soonest.

"Kung dunay kwarta nga motuyok, paspas mobalik ang lig-ong ekonomiya," Emano said.
