Dipolog supports ‘Barkada Kontra Droga’

by Franklin P. Gumapon

DIPOLOG CITY, Jan. 18 (PIA) -- In support to the “Barkada Kontra Droga” (BKD) program of President Benigno S. Aquino, III’s administration, the city government here led by Mayor Evelyn T. Uy is now organizing BKD in every barangay of the city.

BKD is a national anti-drug program aimed at curbing drug abuse in all parts of the country through the active participation of the public.

It also seeks to complement the efforts of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) in their campaign against illegal drugs.

The City Information Office (CIO) reported that BKD seminars are now being held in the barangays in coordination with the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), Department of Education (DepED), Sangguniang Kabataan (SK), officers of student organizations, students, teachers and parents.

The seminar tackles the three major issues in the government’s anti-drug campaign program such as the government’s response to the drug problem, effects of drug abuse and the laws on prohibited drugs.

BKD was launched in this city in July 2010 with barangay officials, school principals, non-government organizations (NGOs), personnel from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the PNP, with other stakeholders in attendance. (ALT/FPG/PIA-Zamboanga del Norte)
