Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said there will be no exemptions in the clearing operations along highways and roads in the Summer Capital.
The Baguio politiko said he has received many requests for exemptions in connection to the road-clearing operations.
President Rodrigo Duterte, during his recent State of the Nation Address (SONA), order local government officials to reclaim public roads by dismantling obstructions.
“We cannot do otherwise. We just have to do what is fair and what is right for our city and they have to accept that,” Magalong said.
“We have to implement it and everyone must follow after all they were all aware that they violated the law and so they cannot do otherwise but obey,” he added.
