The governor of Sulu and his constituent-student leaders have agreed to cooperate in fostering solidarity among local communities by building consensus through dialogues on how to resolve domestic peace and security issues.

The student leaders from different schools and Sulu Gov. Abdusakur Tan II also agreed, during a meeting the other day, to maintain an open line of communication among them to ensure continuing exchanges of recommendations on how they can help one other address socio-economic concerns besetting the province.

Tan, a first-termer, is keen on involving students in the province in governance and public administration, according to a press communiqué emailed by his office.

The governor is chairman of the inter-agency, multi-sectoral provincial peace and order council.

The meeting among Sulu’s provincial officials and student leaders was held at the provincial capitol in downtown Jolo, capital of Sulu.

Tan was quoted in the statement from his office as saying that his administration wants to help capacitate students in schools in Sulu, through various interventions, as initial preparation for their possible involvement in public service when they become professionals.

Tan is looking forward to extensive cooperation among local student governments and his administration on activities meant to propagate awareness of youth participation in peace-building and governance.
