LIEUTENANT General Alberto Macairog, commanding general of the Philippine Army (CGPA), conducted a site inspection at the first batch of housing units intended for former rebels in Barangay Cuambogan, Tagum City.

“Napaka-importante nitong project na ito especially that it will help us in our problem in insurgency. Matutulungan natin ‘yong kababayan natin na sumama sa NPA (former NPA) and now they returned to us sa society natin, bumalik sa gobyerno,” Macairog said in a press conference Friday, February 1.

The program is also seen to address one of the root causes of the insurgency problem, the lack of housing opportunity.

The housing project, spearheaded by the National Housing Authority, was formerly earmarked for the military and police personnel but due to the need to allocate housing units for former rebels under Administrative Order No. 10 dated April 3, 2018, Escalada recommended for the re-allocation of the housing units which the AFP-PNP Housing Boards waived in favor of the former rebels.
