LMP-Bohol prexy mulls drug testing of all mayors

TAGBILARAN CITY, September 30 (PIA) -- The president of the League of Municipalities (LMP) in Bohol is planning to have all mayors in the province to undergo drug testing.

LMP-Bohol President Clarin Mayor Allen Piezas during a radio interview here yesterday said he would still consult other members of the organization during their next meeting on October regarding this plan.

According to Piezas, this initiative is also a way for local chief executives in the province to show support for the Duterte administration’s war against illegal drugs.

On July 27, 2016, after presiding over his first National Security Council meeting, President Rodrigo Duterte called on local government officials to support his war against illegal drugs, warning that unless the scourge is eliminated, it will haunt the three succeeding administrations.

Since the national government launched its intensified drive against illegal drugs, mayors in Balilihan, Dauis and Panglao towns have voluntarily undergone drug testing and were found negative of any drug traces.

The mayors in the province are the heads of the Municipal Peace and Order Council and Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council in their respective towns who oversee peace and order situation in each town and the municipality’s drive against crime and illegal drug activities. (rmn/ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
