Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan is disappointed over the rise in the number of drug-affected barangays in the Summer Capital.
This after the Regional Oversight Committee chaired by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) added 18 barangays to the drug-affected list.
This brings the total number of drug-affected list from six to 24.
The Baguio politiko said some surrenderees have gone back to their illegal drug activities.
“Our newly elected barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan officials have a tough job ahead of them because of the need to further enhance our aggressive anti-illegal drug campaign to eventually stop the illegal drug trade in our city,” Domogan said.
“We are wondering why there are still individuals who continue to ply the illegal drug trade when there has been a strong warning from the national and local governments for them to stop the said illegal activity,” he added.
