COTABATO CITY (April 29,2024) — In a recent address to members of the United Bangsamoro Justice Party (UBJP), Abdulraof A.

Highlighting the multifaceted purpose of political parties, the UBJP Secretary General outlined three key objectives: establishing effective governance, molding future leaders, and fostering social movements.

The Governor called for unity within the party, underscroing the importance of supporting party leaders and initiatives. He urged members to embrace constructive criticism with an open mind, viewing it as an opportunity for growth rather than a setback.

Addressing the role of social media, Governor Macacua urged members to use online platforms responsibly, promoting positivity and resilience in the face of criticism. He likened the process of criticism within the party to that of a company’s internal review, emphasizing the need for self-reflection and improvement.

In his closing remarks, Governor Macacua invoked the principles of forgiveness and guidance from Allah SWT. He urged the party members to extend forgiveness to those who may oppose them and to seek divine assistance in their endeavors.

The Governor’s speech signals a commitment to ethical leadership and community-driven politics within the Bangsamoro region, setting a standard for political engagement rooted in Islamic values and social responsibility. (Hasna U. Bacol, BMN/BangsamoroToday)
