LCP backs calls for united, undivided PH

MANILA -- League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) has expressed support for a united and undivided Philippines amid a call to separate Mindanao from the rest of the country, according to LCP president Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.

“The League of Cities of the Philippines supports the Department of the Interior and Local Government on its call for a united country to continue our achievements in peace, progress, and prosperity,” Rama said in a statement.

“We cannot overemphasize the importance of working together, of moving as one, propelled by our genuine concern for the plight of our fellow Filipinos. Now, more than ever, we should be guided by compassion and sensitivity to attain progress together,” he added.

Rama said Filipinos are always tested by varying views of development.

But he emphasized that it does not mean that the collective efforts should precede people’s sense of decency, respect and care for each other.

“The League supports the duly constituted authority and remains steadfast in upholding the Constitution. We must continue to be guided by a selfless service, a hallmark of genuine public servants,” Rama said.

“Our strength as a nation lies in our ability to rise above partnership and self-interests. Our nemesis is a divided nation. We are stronger when we are united through God’s blessings,” he added.

The LCP is just one of the groups that expressed their support for a united and undivided Philippines, turning down calls for Mindanao secession. (PND)
