COTABATO CITY -- Newly-installed Maguindanao Governor Mariam Sangki-Mangudadatu has directed provincial government workers to “smile” while serving the people.
“A simple simile gives sincerity to what you have pledged in bringing services to the people,” Mangudadatu told a radio station here in an interview Thursday.
The governor first mentioned her "smile policy" during her inaugural address at the gymnasium of Shariff Aguak, Maguindanao on July 2.
“There is always a feeling of calmness and friendly atmosphere when you smile, especially during government processing transactions,” she said.
Mangudadatu also called on the residents to report to her any provincial government employee who acts irritably when dealing with them in their respective offices.
“It's time to change all these (bad mood intervals) to a positive approach,” the governor said, adding her administration will push for the “Bagong Maguindanao” campaign as a way to reinvent the image of the province.
