LINGAYEN- Alaminos City Mayor Arthur F. Celeste took part in the Pangasinan Anti-illegal Drugs Summit held last September 16 here.
He said this was to show his strong support and commitment to President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s war against illegal drugs, which is implemented by the Philippine National Police (PNP) under its Project Double Barrel: Operation “Tokhang” and Operation High Value Target (HVT).
Gov. Amado “Pogi” I Espino III initiated the conduct of the summit,which was attended by Interior and Local Government Secretary Ismael D. Sueno, PDEA Director-General Isidro Lapena, PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Gregorio Pimentel, PDEA Regional Director Jeoffrey C. Tacio and Acting PNP Provincial Director P/SSupt Ronald Oliver Lee.
 To show support, Celeste and his brother, Bolinao Mayor Arnold Celeste, signed during the event the Pledge of Commitment and Support to the Anti-Illegal Drugs Campaign of the national government along with the guests, Pangasinan officials and sectoral leaders.
It will be recalled that last July, Celeste initiated the multi-sectoral program dubbed as LGU Intervention on Peace and Order and Anti-Drug Campaign wherein 600 “drug personalities” have surrendered and promised to leave their illegal drug  activities.
“We are determined to put an end to illegal drugs  activities in the city. We will help those who turn themselves in  but promised to end their illegal drugs involvement,”  Celeste said in launching the program.
Meanwhile, Secretary Sueno lauded the provincial government for throwing its all-out support to the Duterte administration’s anti-illegal drugs program.

He said President Duterte “would like to totally eradicate the drugs menace in six months with the help and cooperation of everyone especially the volunteers in the barangays.”
He also said  two new drug rehabilitation centers will be constructed this year in Luzon area and another two for Visayas and Mindanao in addition  to the smaller rehabilitation centers that a group of Chinese businessmen and San Miguel Corporation are expected to build in every region.
