Hindi na 'to panahon ng bangayan, panahon na to para sa tuloy-tuloy na pagbabago at kinakailangan maiparating sa bawat mamamayan ng ARMM ang totoong serbisyo ng gobyerno (We are past the time of political discord. This is now the time to move forward for sustainable reforms, and we need to deliver the government services to each ARMM constituent), Hataman said.
