He also exuberantly conveyed that as of June 20, 2021, the PSA has recorded 37 Million Step 1 registrants and 14 Million Step 2 registrants for the PhilSys.


Moreover, Executive Assistant to Mayor Montilla, Rogelio Garcia, recalled his personal accounts of when he was in Qatar and of how beneficial the National ID System is to that country. He also expressed his excitement over what the PhilSys has in store for the Philippines and even for the City of Goodwill. He also took pride on how receptive and cooperative of the PhilSys the people of Tacurong are.


Witnessing the program in flesh were PSA RSSO-XII Regional Director Atty. Maqtahar L. Manulon, PSA RSSO-BARMM OIC-Regional Director Engr. Naser S. Usman, SK Province Chief Statistical Specialist Herlita G. Caraan, President Quirino OIC-Mayor Ma. Katrina Sandigan, and Representative to Governor, Alfonso Dimasuay.

However, due to the current General Community Quarantine classification of the province, registration has been stalled until further notice. (DEC, LGU-TacInformation)

Mayor Montilla campaigns for support on National ID System in census meeting
