STEPHEN Paduano alias “Carapali Lualhati,” former National Chair of the Revolutionary Proletarian Armg-Alex Bongcayao Brigade (RPA- ABB), revealed the ongoing transformation conference held by his former comrades.
Paduano has already resigned from the RPA-ABB after he decided to join in the political system of the country. He is now the number one nominee of 136 Abang Lingkod Party-list group.
The transformation conference will also result to the election of the new set of officers while the former rebel group is in transition from being an armed group into an unarmed group, he said.
The transformation of the RPA-ABB into a social political group is headed by its chair Veronica Tabara of the Rebolusyonaryong Partido ng Manggagawa ng Pilipinas (RPMP).
Paduano said that he was one of the speakers in Tuesday's conference of his former comrades.
The transformation he said is part of the final agreement between the government peace panel and the RPA-ABB.
Paduano said that some of the difficulties encountered by his former comrades is their safety because they find it hard to adjust from being armed to being unarmed, although they will be put in Peace and Development Communities. (TDE)
