Then he is also one of the 80 members of the Parliament appointed by President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. on August 12, 2022, for the Second BTA.

MP Yacob, a Shari’ah Law degree holder at International Islamic University, Madinah Al Munawwarah, K.S.A., and a Doctor of Philosophy graduate at the Cotabato State University, was also the former Executive Director of the MILF led Non-Governmental Organization, the Bangsamoro Development Agency Inc. (BDA Inc). He served as the head of the said office for nine (9) years and significantly led the agency to reach out to constituents inside and outside the region and produced a competitive workforce. 

He is concurrently holding an executive position as the Minister of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Agrarian Reform (MAFAR), BARMM. Having been born into a family of farmers and thus being a farmer himself, MP Yacob can truly relate to the struggles, and hard work of our farmers and fisherfolk, and so through his initiatives as a Member of the Parliament and Minister, MP Yacob is looking forward to a stable Bangsamoro homeland and secured constituents through legislation.
