Arandia personally sought ghe help of the Ako Bicol solon so that the stranded Masbateños could safely return home.

“Para sa maayos na proseso, nakipag ugnayan si Cong. Zaldy kay Masbate 3rd District Congressman Wilton Kho. Hiniling nya na payagang makabyahe pauwing Masbate ang mga stranded individuals sa Pioduran port,” said the partylist.

“Ayon kay Cong. Zaldy, tinugunan nya ang panawagan ng mga LSI upang sila’y makauwi sa kanilang probinsya ngunit mahigpit niyang pinagbilin ang pagsunod ng mga ito sa “strict precautionary measures” na ipinapatupad ng IATF,” it added.
