COTABATO CITY -- The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) is set to launch on Saturday its weekend radio program “Radyo Bangsamoro”, aimed at updating its constituents on the affairs of the region.
The program, slated from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., would be aired via the Catholic-run DXMS radio station in this city.
“In our initial broadcast, BARMM interim Chief Minister Ahod (Al Haj Murad) Ebrahim would be heard via phone patch inviting his constituents to tune in to the program and be abreast on regional matters,” Irene Fernandez-Gonzales, chief administrative officer of the Bureau of Public Information – BARMM, said.
Fernandez said the program would handle topics on peace and security, economics and development, among others.
She added that Abdullah Cusain, BARMM deputy executive secretary, is also expected to join the initial broadcast of the program.
The program would be hosted by Fernandez-Gonzales and Albashir Saiden, also of BPI-BARMM.
The BARMM covers the provinces of Maguindanao, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Lanao del Sur, and Basilan; the cities of Cotabato, Marawi and Lamitan; and the 63 villages in six towns of North Cotabato province that voted for inclusion to the fledgling expanded region during the January 21 and February 6 plebiscite this year.
