The average resident of Iligan (Iliganon) doesn’t know that one of the major personages in the consultations between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) a fellow Iliganon. He goes by the name of Prof. Rudy Rodil.
Currently, however, Iliganons who know about his part in the negotiations for the formation of the Bangsamoro Juridical Entity are smoldering in anger against him. They feel betrayed that a fellow Iliganon was instrumental in the would-be-giving away of 8 barangays, constituting 82% of the city’s area, to the MILF rebels; and that that Iliganon kept the deal secret from his fellow citizens.
I’ve heard that he expressed his desire to explain his side, but the City Council is refusing to hear him out. I can understand their sentiment. I wouldn’t want to hear his silly speech which would be about finally giving peace a chance in Mindanao. I would merely shout him down and call him BETRAYER, TRAITOR, and GMA-PAWN.
Btw, he hasn’t returned to the city yet since his incursion to Malaysia when the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was nipped. Much blood is still boiling in the city, and the sight of him might aggravate the already tense situation.
I recently heard that the guy is homesick. He texted someone with this message, “Ok naba mubalik ko dira?”
Can I come back now?
I don’t know how the text recipient replied to him, but if I was the one who received that text I would tell him to FORGET ABOUT IT, AND THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER THAT HE ROT IN MALAYSIA.
