Tigbao is a landlocked municipality located in the middle of the Zamboanga del Sur province. On the north and the east, it is bounded by the municipality of Dumalinao. The south sees the municipality of Guipos while the west is the municipality of Lakewood. It is included in Zamboanga del Sur’s second congressional district. According to the census that was done as of the year 2000, Tigbao has a population of 16,914 people in about 3,089 households. From the provincial capital of Pagadian City, Tigbao is located some 30 kilometers away. It can be reached via land and sea through the provincial capital.

The name comes from a Subanen word for a grass that thickly grows and spread to areas that are uninhabited by people. When the Subanens, the first group to have arrived in the area, saw the abundance of these grasses, they named the place after it. The highest peak of Zamboanga del Sur, Mt. Timolan, can be found in Tigbao. The mountain also happens to be the last wildlife sanctuary as well as havens for the province’s different species of fowls. There are also notable bodies of water such as Lake Maragang, which has a total area of 20 hectares. There is also the Nangan-Nangan Falls which is about 35 meters high. Other bodies of water found in the municipality are the Gapo River and the Libayor River, all of which empty into Illana Bay.

Tigbao is one of the newer municipalities of Zamboanga del Sur. It got its status on November 8, 1991, by virtue of Republic Act No. 7162 that was signed into law by President Corazon C. Aquino. The law was authored by Congressman Antonio H. Cerilles. The first municipal mayor was Hon. Nicanor M. Sajulga, Sr. who won in the synchronized election on May 11, 1992. He assumed office on July 1, 1992 and was again reelected in 1995 and 1998.

    Found a lump under my armpit. Initially it was small. The pain was not felt. Now rub and growing. My friends like do not. The other day found out that it can be serious disease. But most likely, obviously fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I’m not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail.
    Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of microbes. Later formed balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. Then there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.

    I have seen that car insurance firms know the cars and trucks which are liable to accidents and other risks. Additionally , they know what sort of cars are prone to higher risk and the higher risk they have got the higher the particular premium charge. Understanding the very simple basics with car insurance can help you choose the right form of insurance policy which will take care of your wants in case you get involved in an accident. Thank you for sharing your ideas on your own blog.

    Interesting article. It is very unfortunate that over the last years, the travel industry has had to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, plus the first ever entire global economic depression. Through everything the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient along with dynamic, finding new methods to deal with trouble. There are always fresh problems and the opportunity to which the field must again adapt and reply.

    Thanks for the tips on credit repair on this excellent web-site. The things i would tell people is usually to give up the mentality they will buy right now and fork out later. Being a society most people tend to repeat this for many things. This includes vacation trips, furniture, and also items we want. However, you should separate a person’s wants from the needs. If you are working to raise your credit score make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to economize or you can go to second hand merchants instead of expensive department stores for clothing.

    Thanks for your publication on the traveling industry. We would also like to include that if your senior taking into account traveling, it really is absolutely imperative that you buy traveling insurance for golden-agers. When traveling, seniors are at greatest risk of experiencing a professional medical emergency. Buying the right insurance plan package on your age group can safeguard your health and provide peace of mind.
