Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu!
On behalf of the men and women of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP), I would like to congratulate the Bangsamoro Government as you celebrate your second foundation anniversary.
No one foresaw that your second year of running the affairs of government would be this challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic pushed all us to our limits, putting our health and safety on the line.
However, the manner in which the BARMM Government has courageously confronted this health crisis, while decisively addressing issues of governance during this transition period, is a testament of your commitment, foresight and determination to make the region a place where all Muslims, Christian, and Indigenous Peoples can live in peace, harmony and prosperity.
Rest assured that OPAPP, together with our local and international peace partners, will be here to support you towards realizing the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the Bangsamoro People.
Thank you for working hand-in-hand with the National Ggovernment and believing that mutual trust, commitment, and cooperation will be the key to our success. Indeed, our collective vision of achieving a just and lasting peace in the BARMM is within reach despite the great challenges ahead.
Again, happy second founding anniversary to the BARMM government! Mabuhay po kayo!
