Ajihil said Hataman had, on many occasions, showed and expressed his concern to help develop the province, thus earmarking a substantial fund for the improvement and upgrading of roads, sea ports, and bridges


Ajihil said this is one of the many reasons why there is an ongoing improvement of vital government infrastructure in the province of Tawi-Tawi.

He said his office was also tasked by Sadain to oversee the construction of all the projects and programs of the ARMM-DPWH in the province.
