Message of Regional Governor Mujiv S. Hataman On the Passing of Hon. Simeon A. Datumanong
On behalf of the Autonomous Regional Government, I offer my deepest condolences on the passing of a great statesman, public servant and lawmaker, the Hon. Simeon Ampatuan Datumanong.
The whole Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao has lost a great leader. Hon. Simeon Datumanong embodied the high ideals of an honest politician, a patriot who believed in the Bangsamoro cause to which he devoted his life.
He will forever stay in the hearts of the people of the ARMM in general and Maguindanao in particular as a deeply respected and loved leader.
He will be missed not only by his constituents but also by the august halls of congress, and the various offices he served with distinction and respect.
On a personal note, being part of the family, I extend my deepest sympathy and utmost support to all members of the Clan in this mournful hour, as I wish them strength and courage on the loss of a revered Patriarch.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un
