Hadji Kahal Q. Kedtag, DENR-ARMM Regional Secretary, underscored in his closing remarks that the event mainly focuses on the wonderful culture of the Maguindanaons.
"The cultural dance presentation emphasized on the livelihood of the Maguindanaons such as fishing, malong weaving, and more while the theatrical play focused on the theme which means that the Bangsamoro has one goal and that is peace in Mindanao through the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL)," Sec.
