Mayor Singson admits implementation of smoking ban ‘overlooked’
Candon City Mayor Ericson Singson, according to a Rappler report, admitted that he “overlooked implementing the smoking ban.”
The Ilocos Sur politiko is referring to Candon City’s own ordinance banning smoking and President Rodrigo Duterte’s Exeuctive Order (EO) 26.
Singson said there were supposedly few smokers in the city.
“Actually, if you look around Candon, there are only a few smokers. Maybe that’s why people also do not notice where the designated smoking areas should be because they would just go outside of their house to smoke and there’s only a few of them,’” he explained.
But Singson said he will meet with the Candon City Council to discuss how the smoking ban will be implemented.
