Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Lanao del Sur, Philippines

Source: Lanao del Sur LGU

Lanao del Sur has a long and colorful history to share. The Darangen epic, famous among the Maranao, relates about the events and people and gives description to the old towns during pre-colonial times. Lanao is the home of the Maranao Sultanate known today as the four principalities or Pat a Pangampong sa Ranao, namely Masiu, Unayan, Balo-i and Bayabao.

The Sultanate governs independently through an unwritten code referred to as Igma Ago Taritib (literally: Order and Consensus). Its political power and domain is equally recognized by the state like those in Sulu and Maguindanao. In the heyday of colonialism, Lanao is proud to have resisted the succeeding foray of Spanish, American and Japanese intrusions.

The saga of Maranao heroes who fought bravely in the so-called Moro Wars during the Spanish colonization along with their Tausug and Maguindanao brothers are living proofs. The legendary battles of Bayang, Sultan Gumander, Ganassi and Tugaya records Maranao fighters armed with kris, spear, bow and arrow faced the canons and rifles of the Americans, exhibiting Maranao assertion for freedom and distinct political identity. The Japanese likewise failed following the fate of its predecessors.

The creation of Lanao del Sur is dated during the height of the Commonwealth government campaign for settlement in Mindanao. The undivided Lanao was administratively part and a political unit of the Moro province by virtue of Philippine Commission Act No. 787. Thereafter, in May 27, 1959 by virtue of Republic Act No. 2228, the unified Lanao was divided into two distinct provinces, namely Lanao del Sur and Lanao del Norte. Lanao del Sur was officially chartered on July 4, 1959.

Lanao del Sur went through phases of political changes. As a result of the negotiated settlement with the MNLF (Tripoli Agreement) during the Martial Law years, President Marcos issued P.D. No. 742 which included Lanao del Sur in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). The constituents of Lanao del Sur affirmed the province inclusion in ARMM during the plebiscite on February 19, 1989. Although Marawi City refused to join first, it reconsidered its position later in 2001.

Barangay's power and authority: A must read for all barangay officials


This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

Barangay anim 4500.gif
A Barangay Clearance is NEEDED in order to get a Business License.
So why is the barangay name not in most business addresses?
Ask your Barangay Captain/Chairman to create a Resolution to make it mandatory to put the barangay name in all Business addresses.
Every Government Unit in the Philippines is within a Barangay. The municipal hall, city hall, the provincial capitol building, and even the Malacañang Palace where the president resides is within a Barangay.

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress. Not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads or any infrastructure need to be built, improved or repaired, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and present it to the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Each city or municipality is represented by the "barangay association or federation". The elected president of the Association of Barangay Council and the President of Kabataan (SK) association each have a seat in the City/Municipality council. Their powers are the same and equal to the elected city/municipality councilors. They are there to help lobby the demands of the barangays. They are not there just to collect a big salary and rub elbows with the regular elected city/municipality council, but to also represent the needs of the barangays.
The duties of the barangay officials are specifically written in Chapter III(Punong Barangay) and Chapter IV (The Sangguniang Barangay). Read it..

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, the "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove or suspend any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Elected public officials can't be suspended by the DILG or the office of the president unless an official complaint has been filed, there must be proof and there must be due process. Republic Act 7160 chapter 4, Section 60. Information is power. Be informed. Do not be intimidated by the president, senator, congressman, governor, mayor, vice-mayor, or councilors. Do your job.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

If the power lines are sagging, don't go to the power company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the power company.
If the water lines are busted, don't wait for the water company, go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the water company.
If the potholes in the road are not fixed, don't wait for the The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), go to the barangay office. Ask the barangay for a DEMAND resolution against the DPWH.
Are you beginning to get the point?

Cleaning the shorelines, drainage systems, streets, rivers, and parks within your barangay is YOUR responsibility. You are accountable for this. It is not the responsibility of the City/Municipality officials. The citizens and officials of the barangay are responsible. Stop blaming others.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • The bureau of internal revenue is in cahoots to subdue the barangays, municipalities and provinces. They call the rightful shares to the taxes collected as "Internal Revenue Allotment Dependency". It is not a dependency. It is the lawful and rightful share of the LGU as specified in "TITLE III, SHARES OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS IN THE PROCEEDS OF NATIONAL TAXES, CHAPTER I, Allotment of Internal Revenue Taxes, Section 284."
  • "IMPERIAL MANILA IS A MYTH!", it does not exist anymore. The Philippine budget formulation system is not centralized. "Budgetary planning has been DECENTRALIZED since 1991". It is the responsibility of each LGU to submit their budgetary needs for review. Failure to submit is the problem.
  • DURING ELECTIONS: Where do City and Municipality politicians go to campaign? They seek the support of the Barangay officials. They plead to the barangay folks for the votes. Even the candidate for president. But after the election they ignore you. Do not ever forget the power of the barangay.

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

  • Absolutely NO need for FEDERALISM. It is a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State where the religion of Islam is financed by the Philippine government. Bangsamoro will be a HOMELAND not for all Filipinos but for only the Muslim Filipinos. It violates the constitution's "separation of church and state". Religion is always good for the people but it should never be embraced or financed by government. Tax exemption is not tantamount to financing. Every non-profit organization is tax-exempt.

Natural Resources of Lanao del Sur, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

The Department of Agriculture (DA) has distributed agri-fishery equipment and inputs to 23 cooperatives and four local government units in Marawi City and Lanao del Sur to enhance government’s thrusts on food sufficiency and security.

Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala together with DAF-ARMM regional secretary Sangkula Tindick, assistant regional secretary Pendatun Disimban, BFAR –ARMM director Janice Musali graced the Farmers and Fishermen forum held May 8, 2012 at the provincial capitol in Lanao del Sur.

DAF-ARMM regional information division chief Dhigs Abdullah said, Alcala assisted by Lanao del Sur provincial governor Mamintal Adiong, jr., turned-over certificates to recipient farmers and fisherfolk cooperatives and local officials.

The farm equipment and inputs worth P620,000 include a total of 330 bags of certified rice seeds distributed at 20 bags each to Kamapian sa Ranao Center, Peace Center Incorporated and Unity and Coop Foundation of Lanao del Sur, Inc. all of Marawi City; Liliotun Farmers Assocation and Al-Isla People Economic Multipurpose Coop in Balindog, Tadman Farmers Assocation, Golden Multipurpose Coop, and United Bubong Multipurpose Coop all in the town of Bubong, Shanglan Islamic Development Mulitpurpose Coop, Ditsaan-Ramain, Ompongan o Tanbasok sa Ranao in Marantao, OISCA Farm Development Coop in Poona Bayabao and Al Fallah Multipurpose Coop in Taraka. The Shakba Federation of Irrigators Association of Bubong received 50 bags of certified rice seeds and organic fertilizer while Bubong Kamapian Farmers Association received 40 bags of organic fertilizer and one unit each of abaca stripping machine, wheat and rice thresher and shallow tube well were given to Mindanao Farmers Producer Cooperative of marogong, Tapukan Farmers Multipurpose Coop in Piagapo and Supangan Farmer Producer Coop in Taraka all in the province of Lanao del Sur.

Twelve (12) units motorized banca and eight (8) units fish aggregate devices worth P1.3 million were turned-over to fishermen cooperatives and local government units. Recipients of the motorized fishing banca with two units per cooperative include Sugodian Farmers and Fisherfolks Multipurpose Coop and Ranao Fishermen Islamic Development Multipurpose Coop both of Marawi City; Lakeside Fisher Multipurpose Coop of Balindog, Bairan Farmers and Fishermen Association of Bayang, Siapko Paglas Multipurpose Coop of Buadiposo and Raya Gadongan Fishermen and Farmers Marketing Coop of Ditsaan-Ramain while beneficiaries of the two units each fish aggregate device are the towns of Balabagan, Kapatagan, Malabang and Picong.

In his message, Secretary Alcala stressed the importance of cooperation and partnership in pushing for economic growth that would improve people’s quality of life assuring more livelihood assistance.

“I believe, with our partnership and with the cooperation of the local chief executives, we will be able to hasten the development of the lives of the residents of Lanao del Sur," Alcala said.

In response, Governor Adiong expressed belief that the assistance they received would boost the agriculture and fishery sectors in the province adding that low production due to insufficient support, facility and irrigation system has been the primary problem of the local farmer

As this developed, Secretary Alcala has ordered Administrator Antonio Nangel of the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) to allocate additional funds for the rehabilitation of Kamanga dam which he earlier visited that could irrigate more than 3,000 hectares of farmlands in the towns of Ramain, Buadiposo and Bubong, and also instructed BFAR-ARMM director Musali to conduct a study on the feasibility of establishing a hatchery project near Lanao Lake.

Abdullah also said that Secretary Alcala commits to provide three (3) units of corn mill and twenty (20) heads of carabao with plow and harrow for corn-producing towns in the province and that the agency will likewise coordinate the Lanao del Sur provincial government for the possible inclusion of the area in the Greening Program with rubber, coffee and cacao among the priority commodities.
