Tourism is good in Zamboanga City during this yuletide season.

Councilor Vincent Paul “ VP “ Elago, chairman of the City Council’s Committee on Tourism, said Saturday that he has talked with foreign and local tourists from different places who came in the city during the holiday season and all commented that Zamboanga City  is a charming place.

Elago quoted the tourists as saying the city is generally peaceful with its continuing development.

“You can see many tourists around the city, foreign and local. In fact I have visitors from Manila, the president of the Asia Pacific Advertising together with his family. They visited tourist spots and had beach picnic at the Sta. Cruz island. He was amazed with the development that’s taking shape in Zamboanga City,” Elago said.

Elago also commended the Zamboanga City Police under City Police Director Sr. Supt. Angelito A. Casimiro and Task Force Zamboanga  for the continuing efforts in putting up security marshall plan to secure the city.

“I commend the police and the military for doing their job in preventing and deterring untoward incidents. As of now the city is generally peaceful during the holidays and it should continue to be like that. Our law enforcers should not stop with their security measures,” Elago said. — Allen Abastillas
