The DILG-Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has a new regional secretary in the person of Atty. Noor Hafizullah “Kirby” M. Abdullah.

Abdullah, the former Focal Person of Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao Humanitarian Emergency Action Response Team (ARMM HEART), replaced Atty. Anwar A. Malang, who was appointed as the new Regional Secretary of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

During his stint at ARMM-HEART, Abdullah led the conduct of coordinated actions by all regional line agencies to limit the impact of disasters in the region.

On his first few days as regional secretary, the new regional secretary immediately met with the key regional officials, provincial officials, and employees to impart his style of leadership and his expectations from the DILG-ARMM team.

“Work ethics should be a very important practice in the office,” he said. “There should be no competition sincere there existed diversity of positions, to avoid misunderstanding and insecurities.”

“Cooperation and helping each other are significant working attitudes that the personnel should embrace in the department,” he stressed.
