“Ang gusto ko lang malaman niyo na gusto ko maging peaceful na ang buong Basilan. Kasi pag-umuuwi ako sa amin o mag-attend ng mga conferences o meeting ang tinatanong nila palagi ay kung peaceful naba ang Basilan. Ang sabi ko, ginagawa na naming lahat ang aming makakaya para maging peaceful ang buong probinsya. Salamat po sa lahat,” Uy stressed.-- Allen Abastillas
