DILG Secretary Inaugurates SFDEO’s new buildings

Taking time from various schedules and activities around the country, DILG Secretary Mel Senen S. Sarmiento graces the inauguration of Samar First District Engineering Office’s newly constructed Materials and Quality Assurance Office and Multi-purpose Building at DPWH- Samar First District Engineering Office, Brgy. San Policarpo Calbayog City.

DILG Sec. Sarmiento together with SFDEO’s District Engineer Virgilio C. Eduarte cuts the ribbons, while Father Jonathan Zeta blesses new buildings.

In a message delivered after the blessing, he intimated with fond memories, “this office is very special to me and to my family, my father served as City Engineer in this office, which is known today as District Engineer. That is why when I entered the gate the memories we had in here directly popped-up”. He also congratulates the SFDEO for the achievements received for CY2015, and for the improvements done to this office.

In response to the secretary’s message, District Engineer Virgilio C. Eduarte and Assistant District Engineer Alvin A. Ignacio extended their heartfelt appreciation and thanks to the Sec. Sarmiento’s presence in spite of his busy and very stiff schedule.5
