Statement Of Sen. Nancy Binay On The Bombing Incidents In Jolo, Sulu

I am one with the people of Mindanao and the whole nation in condemning the bombing incidents in Jolo, Sulu while mass is ongoing.

I urge the authorities to look deeply at the reason why the bombings happened, especially considering the whole island of Mindanao is presently under martial law.

Nakakalungkot dahil matagal nang minimithi nating lahat ang ganap na kapayapaan. Don’t we all want peace?

Why is peace so elusive? Ano ba ang mas makakabuti sa tao at sa bayan: Digmaan, terorismo, o kapayapaan?

It is quite saddening that while there are initiatives to finally end the conflict to have permanent peace, there are also those who continue to terrorize and find ways to derail and impair the gains for peace.

Nakikiramay at nakikisimpatiya rin ako sa mga kaanak at kaibigan ng mga nasawi at nasugatan, and I call on our kababayans to be calm, vigilant, and safe at all times.
