THE chairman of the House committee on dangerous drugs and Surigao del Norte Rep. Robert Ace Barbers on Tuesday lauded President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Romualdez Marcos Jr.’s move of accepting the resignations of the 18 senior police officers allegedly involved in illegal drug activities.
“Make no mistake about it. The President’s acceptance of the resignations of the 18 senior police officers allegedly involved in illegal drug activities is a welcome move and proves the seriousness of his resolve to curb the drug menace. This is a big win in our war on drugs,” Barbers said.
Barbers urged the people to cooperate fully with the government in order to resolve the drug problem and reclaim the future of the country, free from illegal drugs.
“Our united front in fighting this problem does not end here. We shall continue to be vigilant and steadfast in the performance of our duties so we can deliver to the people our promise of good governance,” Barbers added.
