Rappler reporter Pia Ranada speaks to Bangsamoro Education Minister and peace panel co-chairperson Mohagher Iqbal about what the second anniversary of the Bangsamoro region means to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

He says the work of building the region is “fulfilling” but admits not enough services are reaching the Bangsamoro people.
