“Binabati ko ang Makati at Taguig police sa matagumpay na pagsasagawa ng operasyon kontra droga sa kanilang nasasakupan. Ang mas pinaigting na kampanya kontra droga ay hindi lamang para sa katahimikan ng ating komunidad kundi lalo’t higit sa kapakanan ng mga kabataang madalas na nabibiktima ng salot na ito. Ang nasabat nating ipinagbabawal na gamot ay malaking kabawasan sa lalong pagkalat ng salot sa lipunan. ” Wika ni PMGEN DANAO JR.###
