“Nais po nating masiguro ang ating kahandaan sa pagtitiyak na magiging ligtas at payapa ang gaganaping filing ng COC/CONA na mag uumpisa sa unang araw ng Oktubre 2021. Sa ngayon, matapos ang ating masusing pagsasanay, inaasahan po natin na tayo ay mas naging handa sa pagpapanatili ng kaayusan at katahimikan sa nalalapit na araw ng pagsusumite ng COC/CONA at sa halalan 2022.
