Marawi City Mayor Majul U. Gandamra led the city in extending condolences to the family of late former Lanao del Sur Governor Tarhata Alonto Lucman.
“She was a remarkable leader during her time, a fighter for the cause of the Bangsamoro People,” the mayor said Friday, February 26.
He credited Lucman for her efforts against gender inequality.
“Her steadfastness broke the barriers of gender inequality when she was catapulted into the highest post of the Province of Lanao del Sur,” Gandamra said.
“Because of her brave and yet gentle spirit, she was considered mother of the many, lovingly known as ‘Babo Tata’ or ‘Baboa Tata’. In these trying times, we need more people like former Governor Princess Tarhata Alonto Lucman, peace be upon her Soul,” he added.
