“Zamboanga City is not yours, it is not for us and for others. It is for all of us. Let’s protect and preserve it for unity and for peace.”

Thus said former Sulu Governor Sakur Tan in his message during yesterday’s “Region-wide Leaders Summit” held in Zamboanga City with the theme “Confidence Building, Reconstruction and Healing: What Muslims and Christian Leaders can do together”.

The summit, sponsored by the Darul Ifta and the Archidiocese of Zamboanga,  in coordination wit the  City Government of Zamboanga to address and find solutions to the predicament of the evacuees affected by the MNLF attack last September 9, was attended by all leaders and stakeholders in the region

Tan urged the participants not to be carried away  by what is happening in other countries where there are armed conflicts.

“Muslims and Christians here in the region are united and  living in harmony. Let’s support and help each other to solve the problem of the evacuees and support  the local government because our children are studying here,” Tan said..

He added that there is no need for the evacuees to go back to the areas affected by the armed conflict as he advised them to go to the relocation sites acquired for them so that they can live formally,

“They should not make a choice because the Crisis Committee Management headed by  Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar is addressing their problems. — Allen Abastillas
