Mountain Province Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan, Jr. lauded barangay officials for keeping the province drug-free.
Mountain Province is one of the country’s drug-free provinces.
None of the province’s barangay officials was included in the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency’s (PDEA) drug list released prior to the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.
“We are grateful that no barangay official from the province was included in the initial narco-list released by the PDEA and we remain optimistic that there will be no barangay official from Mountain Province who will be included in any narco-list,” Lacwasan said.
He also called on the province to help sustain its drug-free status.
