It’s “Amor Con Amor Se Paga” with Zamboanga – is the immediate and categorical answer given by Zamboanga Del Norte 3rd District Representative Cesar Jalosjos sighting the good relationship of its leaders and that of Zamboanga City when asked if he is running for any position in Zamboanga City.
In an interview, Congressman Jalosjos said that the political climate of Zamboanga City is presently in its strong foundation and the people have chosen outstanding leaders who managed to run the state and its affairs properly in consonance to progress and development and there is no reason for the people to venture other political clans or organizations to run the affairs of their city and consign it in despair.
The solon sighted that his province is also in good relationship with the leaders of Zamboanga City, particularly his co-leagues in congress Deputy Speaker and District 1 Representative Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, and District 2 Representative Erico Basilio Fabian, who is his seat mate, close personal friend and co-league in the Nacionalista Party where the entire Jalosjos political clan in Zamboanga del Norte province also belong.
“Our alleged invasion in Zamboanga is only rumors. Not in our personal knowledge, we don’t have plans to put a Jalosjos in Zamboanga, Beng is my kumare, Erbie is my co-party member, so why should we go there?” Congressman Jalosjos clarified.
Congressman Jalosjos revealed that for several times and even just recently, some people from Zamboanga City visited them and wanted the Jalosjos to run in Zamboanga, but they haven’t taken it seriously as there is no serious matter about it because they don’t have plans to meddle with Zamboanga’s political climate.
“Let’s leave Zamboanga City to its present leaders. The city is in good hands with the able leadership and sound management of Erbie, Beng and Mayor Celso Lobregat as the record shows, the Jalosjos’ are not traitors to its friends and allies ” the solon said.
The same opinion is also shared by Zamboanga del Norte 1st District Representative Seth Jalosjos and Zamboanga Sibugay 2nd District Congressman Romeo Jalosjos,Jr who are one with their clan in having one voice in terms of political stand and decisions.
“Although we have a lot of friends there in Zamboanga, mucho conose, de alya tamen kita, pero para comigo, last term yo ara na congress, I will run as governor in Zamboanga del Norte, my brothers and nephews are in their 1st term also, so how could we ran in Zamboanga? Very simple, we would rather support our allies there,”. Jalosjos said.
At present the Jalosjos’ are occupied in formulating coordinative efforts and strategies in upholding the peace and order problem here in Western Mindanao together with their co-leagues in congress.
Congressman Jalosjos said that they also had talks with the representatives of Zamboanga City with regards to the initiatives to be undertaken in the present peace and security problem we are facing here in our area.
Jalosjos said that with the coordinative efforts of the leaders in the halls of congress, the huge possibility of convergence in peace and security initiatives would be favorable to all citizens of Western Mindanao.
