Asec rallies unity in fight against drugs
by Marcelo B. Lihgawon / PIA

LAGAWE, Ifugao – Department of Social Welfare and Development Assistant Secretary Jose Antonio Hernandez enjoined local anti-drug abuse councils and the community to help promote a peaceful country.

“I encourage everyone to continue supporting the efforts of our government to eradicate drugs, corruption and criminality in our society. This is not only the fight of our President but this is our fight,” Hernandez told the attendees of the second general assembly of recovering drug personalities held recently. 

Hernandez reiterated that it takes a community with members that are constantly working together to achieve the dreams of liberating the country from the clutch of illegal drugs.

“We need constant vigilance because unscrupulous elements always find ways to destroy what the government, the community and family have painstakingly built. Huwag nating sayangin,” he added.

Hernandez also urged the recovering drug personalities to hold on to their desire to have a better and peaceful life with their families and community. “Huwag ninyong biguin ang probinsiya, ang mga taong tumutulong at umaasa sa inyo,” he said.

Hernandez said he is very proud of what the recovering drug personalities are doing under the aftercare program. “Lagi ko kayong ipinagbibida sa buong Pilipinas. Ang sabi ko sa kanila ‘yung dating problema ng bayan, sakit ng ulo at pamilya, ngayon ay ipinagmamalaki na.”

He added that the “Yakap Bayan” Ifugao framework has been replicated in Mindanao.
