HERE’S another good news to Marawi City.
As part of the government’s continuing efforts to help in the recovery of Marawi City, the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) will provide financial assistance for the immediate rehabilitation of the Mindanao State University-Marawi City Track Oval.
PSC Chairman William R “Butch” Ramirez personally announced the government sport agency’s assistance to MSU during his regular media briefing at the PSC Administration Bldg., in Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Vito Cruz, Manila. “Helping in the reconstruction of MSU Track Oval is one of the many ways the Commission is committing itself to Marawi City,” Ramirez told officials and sportswriters present dring the lunch-meeting.
“The idea of partnering with MSU came after President Rodrigo Duterte’s formation of Task Force Bangon Marawi, which directs the PSC, and other government agencies to provide full support for the rehabilitation of the city,” added Ramirez, who was accompanied by commissioners Charles Maxey and Celia Kiram.
MSU President Dr. Habib Macaayong thanked the PSC onbehalf of the MSU and the people of Marawi.
Macaayong assured that the said track oval “will be an open venue for the citizens of Marawi City, Mindanaoan athletes in the grassroots level and any athlete who needs it.”
Aside from the rehabilitation, the PSC will also establish MSU as the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Regional Training Center.
“This will strengthen the talent identification program in the grassroots sports development of Mindanao, with the help of Philippine Sports Institute,” he said.
The MSU, on the other hand, will provide assistance and manpower support in the implementation of the grassroots sports development and talent identification programs of the PSC and PSI in Mindanao.
