President Rodrigo Duterte encouraged the decommissioned warriors of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to help the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) in its quest for oil in the Liguasan Marsh.

“”Binigay na namin sa inyo lahat ng sabi ninyong marshland ninyo. Liguasan Marsh. May oil, may lahat. Inyo na ‘yan…Bigyan kayo ng pera, ayan. Anong kailangan ninyo? Sabihan ninyo,” said Duterte in a speech during the decommissioning of nearly 1,000 MILF rebels and weapons last Friday.

“Try to do something of exploiting the natural resources. It’s very rich. Hanapin na ninyo ‘yang oil kasi kung ma — makita ninyo para na kayong mga Arabo. Mga sasakyan mga Cadillac,” he added.

The Liguasan marsh covers 220, 000 hectares that straddle the provinces of South Cotabato, Maguindanao and North Cotabato. It is believe to have massive deposits of oil and gas.

Duterte said he has agreed to let BARMM to take full control of the potential income from the marshland.

“Wala nang mag-away sa inyo. This is part of government of the Republic of the Philippines. Inyo na ‘to. Walang makikialam sa pera ninyo. ‘Yung mga natural resources ninyo, kung may oil man kaya diyan sa Liguasan Marsh. Well, inyo lahat ‘yan,” said Duterte.

“Pero huwag ninyong kalimutan na kayo lang ang may kotse. Isipin mo naman ‘yung mga buang doon, on the western side na may mga kotse, may mga machineriesBefore ipabili ninyo sa labas, bigyan mo muna ‘yung Pilipino at inyong sarili. And after that, if there’s enough you can be a very prosperous nation of Moro. Hindi tayo kailangan mag-away,” he added.
