Former Army Major Lambasts Sen. Kiko Pangilinan for Criticizing the Possible Extension of Martial Law in Mindanao

Popular social media personality and ex- Major of the Philippine Army’s elite Scout Rager Regiment, Sir Abe Purugganan burned down Liberal Party President Sen. Kiko Pangilinan for objecting to the possible extension of Martial Law in Mindanao after this year’s due date.






Based on Sir Abe Purugganan, the Liberal Party as well as the group of Sen. Kiko Pangilinan must be the one to criticize in the problems of Mindanao for their massive failure and it’s not the Martial Law because for the past six years, they have conducted nothing to fix the problems in Southern Philippines in fact they created the problems more complicated.

Kiko Pangilinan created headlines in the mainstream media criticizing the Duterte admin for the prospects for extending the Martial Law declaration in Mindanao which became so effective based on the residents and locals of Mindanao but criticized by the people in Manila.






Sen. Pangilinan was cited as stating “Ang pagpapalawig mismong ito ay patunay na palpak ang batas militar sa rehiyon. Dahil hindi mabibigyang solusyon ng militar ang mga hinaing ng mamamayan, hinaing na nakaugat sa kahirapan, kakulangan ng trabaho, at kawalan ng mga batayang serbisyo.” Pangilanan said.

Noynoy Aquino in the past six years.

Read the Full Statement of Ex-Army Major Abe Purugganan:

Kiko, ang batas militar ay para sa kapayapaan at seguridad. Yong hinaing ng mamamayan, ugat ng kahirapan, kakulangan ng trabaho, at kawalan ng serbisyo ay hindi sakop ng batas militar. Ang sagot diyan ay socio-eco-political na solusyon. Kayong nasa Kongreso ang dapat manguna dito sa pamamagitan ng pagpasa ng mga batas na tutugon sa mga ito.

Sa totoo lang, kayo ang palpak na mga liberal. Sa anim na taon niyo sa poder, ano ba ang ginawa niyo para tugunan itong pinasasabi mo? Lalo niyo lang pinalala ang mga problema ng bansa.
