BUTUAN CITY – Students from 143 public schools in Agusan del Sur has started using the 7,667 newly-fabricated armchairs handed over by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, an official said Wednesday.

Norman Asugan, the provincial environment and natural resources officer, said the armchairs were made from 498.31 cubic meters of confiscated logs and flitches that were turned over to the provincial government last year.

“These logs and flitches were donated to the provincial government in a deed of donation signed on Oct. 14, 2022 between Department of Environment and Natural Resources - Caraga Region (DENR-13) Executive Director Nonito Tamayo and Governor Santiago Cane Jr.,” Asugan said in an interview.

On Tuesday, both officials led the turnover of the armchairs to the province’s Department of Education (DepEd) office, represented by Superintendent Miverva Albis, at the provincial government center in Patin-ay, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.
