Banguingui, Sulu Mayor Abdulwahid Sahidulla on Monday called on politicians  responsible  in the issuance of black propaganda against  his government to refrain  from using  people to  disrupt the tranquility and peaceful atmosphere of his town.

Sahidulla said some top political leaders in the province are using some people whom they fielded for the  local polls next year as tool to destroy his administration and person in a bid to gain attention of the police and military authorities.

“I don’t know what they want. These top political leaders are using innocent people to paint me ugly to the people of my town. The only good thing is that the people of my municipality don’t believe in them, and still have the trust and confidence on the present administration,” Sahidulla emphasized.

Sahidulla’s statement came after media was able to  obtained and handed him a copy of an affidavit  duly notarized by Atty Lovell C Abad and  signed by Basir Hussin Halid for his commend and reaction on the issue.

In that affidavit, Halid said he is withdrawing his certificate of candidacy for Banguingui councilor in the coming elections, saying he has no interest of running for any elective post in Banguingui as he is a resident and registered voter of Barangay Mercedes, this city.

Halid also clamed he signed the CoC after Abdullajid Alih, a mayoralty aspirant in Banguingui, has threatened of his safety if he will not  sign the document.

According to Halid, Alih  also forced him to affix his thumb mark and  picture on a box of the certificate of candidacy under  a fictitious name Salam Ajid  Jumaril, allegedly a resident of Barangay Dungon, Banguingui town.

He further stated in his affidavit that the life of his family was threatenedby  Alih if he refuses to do the things Alih wanted him to do.

Halid also accused a politician of promising him P10,000 monthly stipend starting September after he cooperated  with Alih’s request, but failed and only gave him P5,000  to date. — Nonoy E. Lacson
