History[edit]

The Municipality of Marogong was first created as a barangay on July 5, 1965, as part of the Municipality of Tubaran. 13 years after, this barangay was changed into a municipality by virtue of the signing of Presidential Decree (P.D.) No. 1131 dated May 4, 1977, signed into law by President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, officially creating Barangay Marogong into a regular Municipality by separating it from the Municipality of Tubaran.[3]

Marogong Municipality was first ran by the appointment of Abdulmadid P. Maruhom, who was succeeded by his children Monara Bae, Amron (Arumpac) and Haroun (Actor), now the incumbent Municipal Mayor.[3]

Marogong was founded by a Sultan Abdulmadid P. Maruhom in 1954 when he explored the forest and settled in what would later become a small town and finally a regular municipality of Lanao del sur. Maruhom was the first appointed mayor and first elected mayor on January 30, 1980.[3]
