Islamic leaders on Monday dropped their support to presidential aspirant Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and officially backed the candidacy of Vice President Leni Robredo.
In a press conference in Zamboanga City, a group of muslim leaders said endorsing Robredo is part of their patriotic duty.
Among the muslim leaders are Sheikh Mahir Gustahaman, chair of the United Imams of the Philippines-Zambasulta Region; Sheikh Fahad Haris, president Almanara Foundation, Inc.; Sheikh Musial Harun, president Kulliyatud Dirasat Al Islamiya Cllege of Islamic Studies; Sheikh Yahya Totong, president Muslim Leaders Assembly; S. UST. Abdulmubin Dalun, president Basilian Huffadz Al-Qur-Anil Karin Association, Inc.; Prof. Abdulham Mohammad, president Maluso Madaris Association; and Prof. Alzad Saitar, Member of Parliament, BARMM.
It was Maluso (Basilan) Mayor Hani Bud who welcomed their pledge of support on behalf of Robredo.
