Leopoldo E. Cabanag.

“Without these men in uniform we could not sleep well at night, we will not be here in order to celebrate as one people of Lanao del Norte, we will not be able to sustain the development that has come to our beloved province. It is proper to give our thanks for their sacrifice in keeping us safe. That is why we support the extension of Martial Law. Our Sangguniang Panlalawigan came up with a Resolution expressing support for the extension of Martial Law in Lanao del Norte.”
