‘God’s miracle’: Erap commends security officials, organizers for peaceful Traslacion
Pinapurihan ngayon ni Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Estrada ang mga security officials at lahat ng nasa likod ng Black Nazarene Feast para sa ligtas at mapayapang Traslacion kahapon, kung saan walang naiulat na nasawi.
Sabi ni Estrada, na nagsilbing Hermano Mayor ng Quiapo Fiesta, ito ay isang “milagro ng Panginoon.”
“It’s a God’s miracle that no one was seriously hurt, no one died. No matter how excellent our preparations are, it is God’s doing that we we’re able to hold the Traslacion safely and peacefully,” pahayag ni Estrada sa kabila ng banta ng terorismo sa Traslacion.
Pinuri Estrada ang Manila Police District (MPD), National Capital Regional Police Office (NCRPO), Armed Forces, at iba pang ahensya ng gobyerno, mga opisyal ng Simbahan, rescuers, mga volunteers, at maging ang mga deboto ng Nazareno sa kanilang kooperasyon at hard work.
“We’ve been preparing for Traslacion as early as July and I can say this is the product of their hard work and cooperation. Definitely, we will make more improvements next year so we can achieve ‘zero casualty’ again,” ani Estrada.
Iniulat naman ni MPD Director Chief Supt. Joel Coronel na walang naiulat na nasawi sa 22-oras na Traslacion, na aniya’y dinaluhan ng 3.5 milyong katao.
“We have injuries but only minor ones, but the most important is that we have no casualty and that there were no crimes reported during the Traslacion,” pahayag ni Coronel.
