For 9th year, zero firecracker-related injuries in Cotabato City – Mayor Sayadi


Cotabato City Mayor Frances Cynthia Guiani-Sayadi hailed the Cotabateños after recording zero firecracker-related injuries for the 9th year.

However, the mayor said the local police have apprehended a few personalities who have violated Ordinance 2144 or the Ban of Firecracker in Cotabato City and Discipline Hours, the local chief executive said.

Those arrested were outside their homes during curfew hours and were caught using different types of firecrackers.

“This is a reminder to all Cotabateños that here in Cotabato City, all laws are being strictly upheld. There are no sacred cows here. Kapag nagkasala ka, kulong ka. Kung ayaw mong sumunod sa batas, umalis ka na lang ng lungsod,” Sayadi said.

“Please do not even attempt to challenge our local ordinances, much more our Philippine laws. I am telling you, you will not win,” she stressed.
