With 14 of its 16 barangays already cleared of illegal drugs, Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said that within two to three months, the remaining two barangays in the city will be drug-free, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Olivarez said on Tuesday that the 14 barangays underwent a process with the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) before they were declared drug-cleared.

“At meron pa tayong isa pa ho…malapit na rin po yung isa at eventually within two to three months baka yung 16 barangay ay madeclare na pong drug-cleared (And there is another barangay that will be cleared soon and eventually within two to three months, the 16 barangays may be declared drug-cleared),” Olivarez said during the launch of the Philippine Moral Transformation 2020 in the city.


The mayor urged barangay officials to sustain the effort once a barangay has been cleared by the PDEA and the PNP.

“Kailangan yung sustainability para tuloy-tuloy ang ating paglaban sa ipinagbabawal na gamot (Sustainability is important in our fight against illegal drugs),” he added.

The launch of the Philippine Moral Transformation 2020 in the city was led by Olivarez in coordination with the Office of the Presidential Adviser for Religious Affairs headed by Dr. Grepor “Butch” Belgica, Parañaque Anti-Drug Abuse Council (PADAC) head Andy Altajeros, Barangay Operations Office head Cherwin Aguilar, the Special Services Office and Public Information Office headed by Mario Jimenez, and the 16 barangays.
