By Abu Rayyan Sugadol

DATU PAGLAT, MAGUINDANAO ( December 31, 2020) – United Youth for Peace and Development, Inc. (UNYPAD) Datu Paglat Chapter conducted Skills Training on Handling Procedures of Meeting and Minutes Writing cum Updates on Government of the Philippines (GPH) – Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Peace Deal Gains at Sitio Kiludan, Barangay Damalusay, Datu Paglat, Maguindanao on December 26-27, 2020.

The event was attended by representatives of different chapters like General Salipada K. Pendatun, Paglat and Provincial Officers. There was a total of 40 participants from the province of Maguindanao.

The activity was supervised by officers of UNYPAD Maguindanao Cluster 3 of which Datu Paglat Chapter belongs.

The activity was aimed to capacitate the members of the organization with skills in handling meeting which is important for the operations of the group.

Part of the event was to provide the participants with the latest updates on the gains of the peace accord between the government and the MILF.

According to the organizers, providing the attendees with the information on the status of the peace process would somehow awaken and drive them to support the “moral governance” currently espoused by the Bangsamoro government.

“I am very happy to see you, brothers and sisters, right after our chapter’s reactivation we have this activity. In this two days activity I hope we can provide your expectations and hopefully you will be thankful for what the chapter has prepared,” Salahudin Manasal, UNYPAD Paglat Chapter Chair, stated in his welcome remarks.

Deputy Secretary-General of UNYPAD National, Datuan M. Magon, imparted updates on GPH- MILF peace negotiation gains.

He discussed the political and normalization tracks of negotiation. “Processes of transitional government are under the political track and security, social economic components are under the normalization tracks,” Datuan explained.

Morsid Talib, the Secretary on Environment and Natural Resources Chief, gave inputs on handling procedures of meeting with minutes writing skills.

He emphasized the four basics to make a decision namely managerial, vote by majority/plurality, consensus and delegation.

“People invited to a meeting don’t show up, people arrive late and leave early and people doodle, think about things they could be doing, or even doze off, and those are attitudes which are said to be worst of the meeting,” Morsid divulged.

UNYPAD Maguindanao Provincial Chairman Akmad S. Musa facilitated the pledge of loyalty of the newly installed officers and members of the organization.

Ustadz Abidin M. Tungkay said that the knowledge learned must be put into action. “We will be asked in the day of hereafter,” he warned during closing remarks.
