COTABATO CITY—More clans in feud were settled as the Bangsamoro Government’s Ministry of Public Order and Safety (MPOS) spearheaded the mediation between two (2) clans in Maguindanao del Norte last week.
On Feb. 8 and 9, two (2) rido cases from Barira and Buldon were settled in partnership with local government units, law enforcement agencies, and other stakeholders at Barangay Aratuc in Buldon of said province.
During the ceremony, both parties signed an amicable agreement to resolve the conflict between families and put an end to it.
Buldon Mayor Abolais Manalao said, “ang peace and order ang isa sa mga prayoridad sa ating Munisipyo upang magkaroon nang mapayapang kinabukasan ang ating komunidad.
“Sa pamamagagitan ng rido settlement, nababawasan ang takot at galit ng bawat isa at lalong napapa-igting ang pagkakaisa at pagsasama ng ating mga pamilya at kamag-anak hindi lamang sa ating munisipyo kundi sa ibang lugar din,” Manalao said.
Meanwhile, on Feb. 12, two (2) families from Matanog Municipality were also reconciled amicably.
Both families took an oath by holding the Qur’an to show their sincere commitment not only to the presence of human beings but for the sake of Almighty Allah. Both families promised not to engage in conflict again.
The rido settlement is one of the major programs of MPOS towards ensuring a safe, secure, and peaceful Bangsamoro. (Majid Nur/BIO with reports from MPOS)
