CEBU CITY -- A solon allocated at least P100 million of his pork barrel funds for the “Sagip Saka” advocacy program of the 24 agricultural communities nationwide, a government press release said.
Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, chairman of the senate committees on agriculture and food, and social justice and rural development, and co-chair of the congressional oversight committee on agriculture and fisheries modernization, said the budget was taken from his Priority Development Assistance Fund.
Pangilinan said "Sagip Saka” is meant to give agriculture and fisheries sector the importance it deserves by building sustainable farming communities nationwide as a means to achieve food security. He added that it aims to provide access to investments and credit; open access to market and roll out infrastructure.
