According to Dr Rahib L. Kudto, UNYPAD President, “This program will greatly help the community as well as BARMM by directly explaining and answering the questions and doubts of the people and answers will come from people with government responsibilities.”
He also called on the UNYPAD member to be calm, as it is not easy to build a strong foundation of government.
“So we must support and give space to the leaders of BARMM today especially as a result of the long struggle,” he said.
UNYPAD Development Management Center Director Morsidin Husain also explained that UNYPAD is a peace and development advocates’ organization and it has supported the peace talks until now in the transitional government.
He said, “It is not easy to build a government especially during the transition period, so we should support it for the sake of the greater Bangsamoro who have long sought a humane government.”
