Quotes

"Aside from the sand and beaches, we want you to try the food. You can only have the true seafood experience when you come to Tawi-tawi, which you can't have in any part of the country. While you're there, experience the Sheik Karimal Makdum commemoration on November 7. He was the first Arab missionary who brought Islam to the country long before the coming in of the Spaniards and he built the first mosque, which is the oldest in the country. This November 7, the ARMM regional government will be having the first pilgrimage in this mosque, and since it's a Friday, it will be the biggest congregational Friday prayer the municipality will ever experience. There will be a reenactment, 'Sasakay tayo ng malalaking vinta.'"
"During my meetings with government officials in Manila, I reiterated the need for a durable solution for displaced people in Zamboanga, who are still living in difficult conditions nearly a year after the fighting came to an end in the city,” he said in a statement."
