Canoy in his message said: "Never before in our history that a Mindanaoan was elected president.
said there is a trend that the president puts priority on where he
comes from while the rest of the country is relegated to the back burner.

"We in Mindanao have all the problems of the Filipinos… We have a revolution going on, we have underdevelopment, some of the provinces are the poorest, our roads are undeveloped.
We have to find a person who can more or less stimulate the development of Mindanao," Canoy
Duterte for president?
said Mindanao needs a person who is very active, with character, as he

has been considering to run in the 2016 elections.
