Clean up MNLF mess, FVR tells PNoy
MANILA - As the crisis in Zamboanga City stretched into another day, former President Fidel Ramos gave the Aquino administration some unsolicited advice.
"Why don't you clean up your own mess first because you did it in the first place after we turned it over to you in a nice silver platter," he said.
Ramos said Aquino should fix his management team.
"Put your team in order. After that, maybe you can succeed in cleaning up the mess," he added.
He said his advice is based on experience. "Kami, we are trying to give advice. You can take it or leave it but it is good advice because it is based on experience."
The peace agreement with the Moro National Liberation Front was signed in 1997 during the Ramos administration.
Ramos said the peace deal was not implemented properly by his successors.
"Hindi totoo na may nasasabi ng media, kayo, sa newspaper na nasira yung peace agreement nung Ramos administration nung panahon ni Ramos. Hindi po. Nasa implementation yan eh. Kahit na anong ganda ng kasunduan, peace agreement, eh kung mali mali ang implementation afterwards eh di sira rin yung kapayapaan na iyun," he added. - report from Abner Mercado, ABS-CBN News; ANC
