ARMM Gov. Hataman receives coveted award

Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Governor Mujiv Hataman is one of this year’s awardees for outstanding governorship given by an international organization on Wednesday in Metro Manila.

Hataman received the coveted Outstanding Governorship Award from the Superbrands Marketing Incorporated (SMI), an organization founded in1994 in United Kingdom with ninety (90) member countries.

“I would like to thank those who makeup the Superbrands Marketing Incorporated or SMI for giving recognition to the Outstanding Governors for 2013,” Hataman said on his speech during the awarding ceremony.

“I am elated to be among those chosen to receive an award like this for this year.”

Hataman is the sole Moro governor among the six awardees that include Batangas' Vilma Santos-Recto.

“If I am not mistaken, I am the first Muslim or Moro leader, as far as I know, to receive this award. I would take this as a great honor not only for myself but for the entire Bangsamoro,” he said.

The award, according to SMI, serves as a testimony of Filipinos’ commitment to excellence.

Hataman is known for initiating reforms in what used to be graft-ridden ARMM bureaucracy. He was touted by President Benigno Aquino III as ‘ghostbuster’ for his efforts in combating ghost teachers and schools that led to hundreds of millions of savings in the region’s education department.
“The key to our service is our loyaltyto our duty, determination to right the wrong, decision to reform a rotten system and a firm belief in the capability of our people. In a short period, we have shown that change can happen in ARMM,” Hataman said.

The regional chief executive, during the ceremony, also reiterated his all-out support to the ongoing peace negotiations in the south.

“As of now, we are preparing ARMM for the coming of a final peace agreement between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and our government. We look forward to a peaceful and better tomorrow with the coming of the Bangsamoro,” he said.

Hataman, who earlier announced that his government will be sending a humanitarian team to Visayas, gave his message of solidarity to all those affected by the super storm Yolanda.

“In closing, I would like to express our solidarity with all the provinces devastated by typhoon Yolanda. We in ARMM send our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of those who perished in the typhoon. Let us show at times like this our unity as a nation,who cares and supports each other whether there is a calamity or not,” he said. (Bureau of Public Information)
