THE Ministry of Health in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MOH-Barmm) hired 25 nurses and seven support staff to boost its current healthcare warriors battling the coronavirus diseases (Covid-19) pandemic.

Dr. Bashary Latiph, MOH minister, administered Monday, October 11, the oath of office of the newly-hired permanent employees at the MOH office in Cotabato City.

Latiph encouraged the newly hired frontliners to live up to being the modern-day heroes in this time of health crisis.

"We must come up with innovative ways to address the problems that arises with the onslaught of this virus," Latiph said.

"This is a challenge for all of you, a responsibility. As public servants, we must put first the welfare of our people above anything else. We must know how to empathize for better delivery of our services," he added.

Meanwhile, Barmm Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim led the employees in taking the “oath of moral governance,” vowing to reject graft and corruption.

"This is because we want na hindi lamang tayo answerable to the government itself but we are also answerable to Allah (SWT)," Ebrahim said.

"We are proud to welcome you all," Ebrahim told the employees. "I hope that you find joy in the thought that this will not just be a career development for all of you but a vocation and service to our people."

He said the regional government is forever committed in building better healthcare services for the Barmm. (SunStar Zamboanga)
