NIA names new Deputy Administrator
The National Irrigation Administration (NIA) appointed former Major General Romeo G. Gan as its new Deputy Administrator for Administrative and Finance.
Gen. Gan, the former Commander of 2nd Infantry “Jungle Fighter” Division of the Philippine Army, took his oath of office before Cabinet Secretary Leoncio B. Evasco this week in Malacañang Palace.
President Rodrigo Duterte appointed him to replace Estrella Icasiano after the latter filed her irrevocable resignation earlier this month.
Gan was recognized as one of the affiliates of Philippine Military Academy Class 1983. He also became Commander of Civil Relations Service of Armed Forces of the Philippines (CRSAFP).
Before his designation as the civil relations chief, he served as the Assistant Division Commander of the 6th Infantry (Kampilan) Division based in Camp Siongco, Awang DOS, Maguindanao.
“After his service and crucial developmental role in nation building and security, General Gan is set to help again the Duterte Administration to attain a rice self-sufficient nation thru effective and efficient irrigation systems,” NIA said in a statement today.
“His leadership and management skills in administrative and finance serve his key in entering the agency,” it added.
With his recent appointment, Gan will join his comrades Gen. Ricardo Visaya (NIA Administrator) and Gen. Abraham Bagasin (NIA Senior Deputy Administrator).
Both are also members of the Philippine Military Academy “Matikas” Class of 1983.
