MILF-BIAF officers attend advocacy on GPH-MILF Peace Agreements




Another batch of officers and members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) of the Moro Islamic Liberation front belonging to Central and Northern Mindanao Fronts attended an advocacy program at JP Restaurants, Barangay Rebuken, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao on June 18, 2014 aimed at enhancing their level of understanding and awareness on the GPH-MILF Peace Agreements.


About 300 participants from the Civil Military Relations Department, Military Disciplinary Board, Murshid Training Education Department attended.

Unit heads of training, Research and Community Organizing of the Bangsamoro Leadership and Management Institute (BLMI) acted as speakers on various topics in the one day program.

Sheikh Sam Alabat, Shariah Lawyer and a graduate from International Islamic University (IIU), Pakistan and head of Community Organizing lectured on leadership in Islamic perspective. 

This writer, BLMI Research Unit head lectured on Ministerial Form of Government as envisioned for the upcoming Bangsamoro new polity, electoral system and political party formation.

Professor Esmael Abdula, Head of BLMI Training Unit spoke on GPH-MILF Peace process presented and discussed all agreements between the GPH and the MILF from 1997 up to the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) on March 27, 2014. 
In the open forum participants raised their concerns and confusions on issues not so familiar to them and were in turn clarified vividly by the speakers.
  
Since the previous months, the MILF-BIAF of Central Mindanao front (CMF) and BLMI as a capacity building entity were partners in capacitating officers and members of the military wing of the Moro Front on various aspects of leadership and management, providing the combatants accurate information on the peace process, the proposed Bangsamoro region and the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL).

To the minds of BLMI’s management, BIAF officers and members among others are priorities in their capability building programs as they were less informed on the recent developments affecting the Moro people. A lot of them had virtually lived in the jungles and marshlands of Mindanao for quite a long time in pursuance of the Moro struggle for self-determination, peace and progress in their homeland. It is high time that they can partake with skills and knowledge on public administration and governance.
