President Duterte is expected to solicit the support of the country’s mayors in the government’s war on illegal drugs during a meeting on January 11, Wednesday.

Senator Alan Peter Cayetano said the President needs the support of the local officials not only in fighting drug syndicates but also in the rehabilitation of drug addicts.

“It’s going to be a long day for our President dahil nakapila ang grupo-grupo na mga mayors from all over the country at i-heart-to-heart talk niya ang mga ito,” Cayetano said in a Facebook video before attending the New Year reception hosted by the President in Malacañang.

“Nakikita ko kasi bilang dating ama, mayor ng Davao, nakikita niya na ang laking magagawa ng mga mayors at ng local officials natin kung 100 percent ang support nila hindi lang na tugusin ang drugs kundi sa rehabilitation at ida pang program sa local government,” he added.
