MANILA, Philippines — Incoming Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff LtGen. Felimon Santos, Jr. believes that the people in Mindanao have welcomed the change that the termination of Martial Law has brought to the region.

He said that the military has explained very well to the local government units in Mindanao who had been initially closed to the idea of lifting the Martial Law on why it should no longer be extended further.

The official also ensures that the security in the region will be tightened even more, with checkpoints and regular soldiers on patrol still in place.

“I assure them na kahit walang martial law our security measures are in place even we will enhance pa yung security to ensure na walang mangyari,” said Santos.

Former Sulu governor, Abdusakur Tan, Sr. agrees.

“Nakikita na nag-iimprove dahil pag lagi tayong nasa martial law ibig sabihin magulo,” he said. — (from the report of Dante Amento) /mbmf
