“Ang halaga ng ilegal na droga na ating nakumpiska ay malaking kabawasan sa kumakalat na dami ng ipinagbabawal na gamot sa merkado na sumisira ng buhay ng ating mga kababayan. Binabati ko ang ating mga tauhan sa matagumpay na pagsasagawa ng mga operasyon tungo sa adhikaing wakasan ang paglaganap ng ilegal na droga sa ating komunidad. Wika ni PMGEN DANAO JR.###
