Opposition senator Frances ‘Chiz” Escudero visited Cagayan de Oro City again on Saturday as part of his visitation program for this year.

Senator Escudero, during a press conference held at Kagay-anon Restaurant at Lim ket kai Mall said, the next president should bring together all stakeholders in Mindanao to craft a development agenda that will not be hostage by any change in administration.

He said whoever gets himself or herself elected the next president in 2010 will have a steep mountain to climb, especially in addressing the long-standing problems of Mindanao.

Escudero, according to reports that reached Cagayan de Oro News Online, is also eyeing to become the next president of the Republic. The good senator is yet to qualify for the presidency this coming October 10, 2009 when he celebrates his 40th birthday on this date.

“Only an all-stakeholders approach will lead to the long-sought peace and meaningful development in this region, not Imperial Manila’s “urong-sulong, atras abante” approach since we gained independence,” Escudero stressed.

The 39-year-old lawmaker said the country’s development will greatly be accelerated if authority is devolved to the lowest level of government.
