LCP Statement on President Duterte tough postion against Local Officials involved in Illegal Drugs


By Mayor Edgardo D. Pamintuan
January 12, 2017 - Quezon City


The League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) expresses its full support to the tough position of President Rodrigo Duterte against local officials involved in illegal drugs, which he articulated during a meeting with the country’s mayors yesterday (January 11, 2017) in Malacanang.

 

We, at the LCP leadership believe that it is absolutely unacceptable for local officials to be into illegal drugs in any way, as user, protector or dealer. Local officials, particularly mayors, should in fact be at the forefront of the war against illegal drugs.

 

We subscribe with the President’s position that any mayor or local official involved in any activity related to drugs should be dealt with the full force of the law.

 

The LCP will not condone and will even help prosecute any of it members who are into drugs. Those who may be in the President’s list should immediately clear themselves or face the consequences that the President has stressed on during his meeting with the mayors.

 

We call on all our members to be pro-active in eradicating the menace in their respective areas, even as the LCP commits to implement its own program towards freeing our communities of drugs
