Councilor Mel Sadain yesterday said the opposition leaders who met with former Zamboanga del Norte congressman Romeo Jalosjos last week in Dapitan has no political motive.
Sadain said their meeting with Jalosjos took place after they recieved reports about the formation of the so called Western Peninsula which was created and agreed by four governors, nine congressmen and several mayors of four provinces including Misamis Occidental.
“It is during the meeting when Mr. Jalosjos confirmed that they have formed the bloc,” Sadain said.
Upon learning that Mayor Celso Lobregat commented that the meeting of the opposition was politically motivated, the councilor stressed the mayor should even be thankful they were there instead of being insecure. "If we did not go there to confirm the reports, we might not have known about this up to now." Sadain said.
“Our leaders should do something now. Zamboanga City should move forward, it should not be left behind,” Sadain said.
Sadain said the opposition leaders did not talk about politics and there was no hidden agenda in the meeting.
“We just went there because we want to get clarification right from the horse's mouth with regards to the creation of the Western Peninsula and nothing else,” Sadain emphasized.
