“The National Housing Authority entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the LGU na may pondo para doon sa pagcompensate ng possible na maapektuhan [for the compensation of those possibly affected] as a result of the construction of public infrastructures. Ang road right-of-way ay babayaran naman [The road right-of-way will be paid],” said Gandamra.
