Department of Interior and Local Government OIC-Secretary Eduardo M. Año has underscored the big role of the barangay captains in winning the fight against illegal drugs, criminality and terrorism.

This was his message to the 3,102 newly-elected barangay captains in Central Luzon when they took their oath of office before President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday, June 12.

“May malaking responsibilidad kayo upang maging instrumento sa pagpapanalo ng ating laban kontra sa kriminalidad, ipinagbabawal ng droga, terorismo, at korapsiyon,” he said.

“Isipin natin at isabuhay ang ating pagiging matino, mahusay, at maaasahan sa lahat ng oras. Hindi lamang para sa atin, kundi lalong lalo na sa ating mga susunod na salinlahi,” Año added.

During the event, the local officials also signed a manifesto of support for Duterte’s priority agenda.

“Ganap kong pakikilusin ang mga mamamayan at lokal na institusyong tulad ng Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council at Barangay Peace and Order Council, pamamahalaan ko ang aking barangay nang walang bahid ng katiwalian at gagamitin nang maayos ang pondo para sa kabutihan at kapakanan ng aking pamayanan at mamamayan,” the signed manifesto read.

The barangay chiefs also pledged to actively support the information dissemination on the benefits of federalism and to lead the positive change in their barangays.

Of the 3,102 punong barangays present during the event, 151 were from Aurora, 237 from Bataan, 569 from Bulacan, 849 from Nueva Ecija, 505 from Pampanga, 33 from Angeles City, 511 from Tarlac, 230 from Zambales, and 17 from Olongapo City.
