In their official statement they pinned their hope of “having a conducive environment to live in” for the youth only if the new BBL is enacted” into law without watering it down. But that status “would only be achieved by resolving the Bangsamoro Questions through the immediate passage and enactment into law of the newly crafted Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) drafted by the expanded Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC).”

He also stressed that the future of any country is largely dependent on the capacity and strength of the youth just as one of the Philippine Hero said: “youth is the hope of our motherland” and this is true in our country as well as to the youth of Zamboanga Peninsula.

They also believed that the passage into law of the new BBL as the only “most viable tool for healing and reconciliation of the long standing Bangsamoro Issues” that would redound to “more progressive and brighter future for our generation” or the youth of today and tomorrow.

He further emphasized that “the only thing that could bring about genuine smile to the Bangsamoro People” that will come from the bottom of their heart is enactment of undiluted BBL.”

In closing, Ustadz Nuroddin called on Congress and invoked on God’s intervention to listen to the pleadings of the youth to be given the privilege to have “a progressive and brighter future through the success of the BBL.”
