Nur son urged to run for Sulu gov

Bandera (Mindanao) - - News - By Leifbilly Begas

VARIOUS political clans, religious and sectoral groups have urged the son of Moro National Liberation Front founder Nur Misuari to run for governor of Sulu.

The groups launched a signature campaign to convince Hadji Uto Karim Misuari to considere running for gubernatorial post.

“Hadji Uto Karim Misuari is a promising, young and dynamic leader with unquestionable track record for patriotism and undying love for Lupah Sug and the Bangsamoro people,” the manifesto of support said.

The group believed that the young Misuari would be instrumental in President Duterte’s call “to correct the historical injustice committed against the Bangsamoro people through a no-nonsense governance that will deliver Tunay na Pagbabago” in the province.

The Manifesto also said that Nur’s son should ”take the lead in changing the course of history for Lupah Sug” and “implement the much needed political, social and economic reforms for Lupah Sug.”

The older Misuari was among the Muslim leaders who were consulted by the president in connection with the Bangsamoro Organic Law.

In August, the MNLF founder and Duterte met for the first time after signing the law and affirmed their mutual desire for peace in Mindanao.

Sulu is currently under the powerful political clan of former Gov. Abdusakur Tan.
