PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur—Western Mindanao National Bureau of Investigation (NBI-WEMRO) regional office conducted a two-day off-site clearance processing for clients in Zamboanga Sibugay province from 21 to July 22, mainly for local government job seekers.
The special schedule was in response to Governor Dulce Ann Hofer’s request, NBI-WEMRO director Moises Tamayo told the Inquirer.
Tamayo noted that there is no NBI authorization processing center in Zamboanga Sibugay.
Applicants had to travel to the towns of Zamboanga or Pagadian, a four-hour drive away, to obtain such a document, an additional burden for those seeking employment, Tamayo says.
However, they are studying the possibility of placing a satellite office to meet these needs, Tamayo added.
Jenny Hofer Niedens of the Provincial Governor’s office revealed that they have been coordinating with the NBI-WEMRO, seeing the rise of new jobs, especially under local governments.
They were expecting around 300 applicants for the 2-day program, Niedens said.
