Peace advocates provide free CS exam review to marginalized residents

Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao Del Norte— Peace advocates have fused ranks to provide free civil service (CS) exam review for marginalized Moro residents in Bangsamoro provinces and in nearby towns and cities in Region 12, a Philstar. com report said Tuesday, February 20.
Behind this noble project were physician-ophthalmologist Kadil Sinolinding Jr., a member the 80-seat Bangsamoro parliament, along with engineer Maugan Mosaid, who was once an official in the now defunct Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and private individuals, among them Muslim and Christian peace advocates. 

The report said that volunteers assisted Sinolinding and Mosaid in facilitating the pioneering February 18 to 21 class of 54 Muslim and Christian reviewers at a commercial function facility in Kabacan town in Cotabato province. 

“This is but a simple support to empower young Moro professionals and college students who need this kind of intervention that we can safely say is the first ever in Region 12 and in the Bangsamoro region,” Mosaid, the project’s master instructor, said on Tuesday.

Rolly Sacdalan of Midsayap and Mayor Evangeline Guzman had separately assured to help push the project forward, for them something needed in the employment of Moro constituents to career positions in government entities in the BARMM and in administrative Region 12.

Management of Kabacan Deseret Surgimed Hospital offered a vacant space in its building as venue for CS review classes in the coming months.
