Arthur Defensor, Sr. who led the laying of capsule together with the other government officials and local functionaries namely RD Nuyda, PD Sumagaysay, Mayor Carina Flores, Vice Mayor Vincent Flores, Engr. Gracianito  Lucero (Provincial Engineer), Punong Barangay  Antonio Masculino Jr. of Brgy Abilay Sur, PB Serafin Clavel of Brgy. Abilay Norte and PB Axel Haro of Lambuyao.

Residents of the four barangays who will directly benefit the project are extremely happy, for after many years of waiting, they will finally have a better road which they believe will eventually help them improve their living condition. 
“After 65 years of my existence, I will finally experience the comfort of a better road, Thank you Gov. Defensor… Thank you DILG!” exclaimed a senior citizen resident of Brgy. Abilay, Oton.
The road concreting project is funded by DILG through the Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP). RD Nuyda emphasized that Iloilo Province is a consistent recipient of the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) as a result the Local Government has acquired the CMGP grant. (Angelyn P. Labor, DILG6)
