Pampanga holds summit among Barangay anti-drug abuse council

Members of the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (BADAC) all over Pampanga province held Friday a summit at the Bren Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando City.

Governor Lilia Pineda presided over the gathering that drew more than 4,000 BADAC members, according to the provincial office of the Department of Interior and Local Government.

The DILG Pampanga said the anti-illegal drugs summit was held for the BADAC across the province to “come together in pursuit of a stronger and a head-on war against the use of illegal drugs.”

“Isa ang Pampanga sa mga pinakamaayos at payapang probinsya. Hindi ito mangyayari kung hindi dahil sa inyong sipag at dedikasyon,” Pineda was quoted by the DILG Pampanga to have said at the event.

“Pero ‘wag tayong huminto dito. Ipagpatuloy natin ang trabaho at pagsiguro na walang iligal na droga ang papasok sa mga barangay natin,” she added.

During the program, DILG provincial chief Myrvi Fabia presented the results of the 2017 BADAC Functionality Assessment.

SSupt. Jean Fajardo of the Philippine National Police, and Glenn Guillermo of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Region 3 also made their respective presentations, focusing on the functions and duties of the BADAC and the status of drug-clearing operations in the province.(END)
