Angara honors Jaafar as ‘voice of reason’
By Marie P. Ruiz
Reelectionist Senator Sonny Angara is saddened by the passing of Bangsamoro Transition Commission Chair Ghazali Jaafar.
Angara said Jaafar who was a voice of reason and a voice for peace will surely be missed.
Angara had a chance to work with Jaafar when the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) was still being deliberated in Congress.
As chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government, Angara co-sponsored the BOL.
The lawmaker saw how Jaafar was determined to get the best deal for his constituents.
Angara described Jaafar as one of the chief architects of the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and the Bangsamoro Organic Law.
