Climaco dares brgy officials to intensify anti-drugs drive


Mayor Beng Climaco has challenged all officials of the city’s 98 barangays, especially the new ones, to be aggressive in the campaign against illegal drugs as this has been the priority of Pres. Duterte.

She said all barangay officials, who assumed office on June 30, must comply with all directives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in compliance with their respective Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) plans.

As of this date, the chief executive said all 98 barangays had already submitted their BADAC plans, and these must be strictly implemented to clear their respective barangays of the drug menace.

The mayor also informed the barangay officials that Zamboanga City or Mindanao as a whole is still under martial law, and as such the military has been designated as martial law administrator tasked to monitor all activities, programs and projects of every barangay official to include the city mayor.

“Under martial law, all of us are being monitored by the military vis-à-vis our attendance, activities done to include accomplishments and non-accomplishments, for that matter,” Climaco said during Monday’s press briefing in City Hall.

Meanwhile, the Task Force Zamboanga is continuously monitoring the whereabouts and activities of 12 Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) members, who returned to the city after ordered released from jail by the court in Pasig.

She also announced that during the City Peace and Order Council (CPOC) meeting Monday, the Coast Guard had reported that it will put up two radar equipment, one each in the east and west coasts, to intensify coastal security measures to be complemented by the city government once the CCTVs are installed in those areas.-(Vic Larato/ City Hall PR)
