President Rodrigo Duterte has welcomed the successful plebiscite for the ratification of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL).
“During (my remaining) three years (in office), one of the great developments that happened in this country is itong BOL. So, I am glad that it has succeeded,” said Duterte in a speech delivered in Maguindanao.
The President also encouraged the people in Maguindanao, who voted for inclusion in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, to support the government’s bid for peace.
“I am inviting everyone here, Maguindanao, primarily, join us in the government. Hindi naman akin yan. Atin lahat itong gobyernong ito. Be a part of it,” said Duterte.
“Okay man yang armas mo, ilibing mo na yan hindi mo kailangan. Isang putok niyan, gulo. Pero kung tahimik tayo, magusap tayo at maibigay naman yung gusto ninyo na tulong na dapat talaga sa inyo…,” he added.
