November 28, 2012 News – Ghazali Jaafar, First Vice Chairman of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), lauded the position of His Excellency President Benigno Simeon Aquino III to establish a coordination mechanism for development assistance following the signing of the GPH – MILF Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro last October 15, 2012 at Malacanang Palace.


“The MILF shares the position of President Aquino and we join his call to pursue a coordination mechanism for development assistance relevant to the GPH – MILF Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro,” Vice Chairman Jaafar.


Jaafar expressed belief that development assistance from donor countries and agencies will pour in following the peace framework accord signed between the MILF and government.

The Vice Chairman called on the development institutions and partners from various countries, government and nongovernment organization to continue and strengthen their engagement and cooperation with the Bangasamoro Development Agency (BDA), the MILF’s development arm.

“We do not want that the development assistance and programs supposedly intended to address the immediate and long term needs of the people who had been seriously affected by the decades-long conflict in Mindanao and in the Bangsamoro will be wasted,” he said.

He said millions if not billions of money or funds had been wasted on the unwise and irresponsible system and management on development assistance particularly in the conflict affected communities in Mindanao and Bangsamoro Homeland.

“There must be ownership by the people and targeted beneficiaries, accountability and transparency in the implementation of development assistance in order to achieve maximum gains and avoiding revolts due to deliberate and misguided duplicity and fatigue on the overall process.
