Thanked you also, to the militant groups for strictly adhering to what have been agreed upon. Although a bit of altercation ensued, between the rallyists/protesters, who tried to occupy the stretch of northbound lane of Commonwealth Avenue for their march it was immediately resolved.
They wanted to occupy the whole road but we did not heed to their request because it will cause traffic. Instead, we requested them to occupy only half of the northbound lane. That was the only problem, but it was settled, said RD Danao.
Further, he also stated when asked , that NCRPO personnel and their augmentation forces will remain in the area to ensure the safety of officials leaving the Batasan premises and will be there up to the last minute until we see that the President is back to Malacañang. Likewise, our personnel on security detail are also in place until the VIPs reach their homes safely.
We are all key players for this achievement for your active participation bespeaks of your professionalism and dedication towards our objective of ensuring the success of the event. ###
