LGU Borongan gets Anti-Drug Abuse Performance Award

BORONGAN CITY, March 29 (PIA) -- Borongan City Mayor Jose Ivan Dayan C. Agda received the "National Anti Drug Abuse Council Performance" for his full support to the country’s fight against illegal drugs in a simple ceremony at Stellar Hotel, this city.

The citation that is concretely engraved in a large DILG glass marker was presented by the Provincial Director of DILG, Engr. Visitacion V. Giva to Mayor Agda.

DILG Provincial Director Giva said the award was given to Borongan City for the 2018 performance audit with other criteria including the holding of regular City’s Anti-Drug Abuse Council (CADAC) meetings, allocation of funds, support to the CADAC programs and the implementation of the programs.

Borongan landed at the number one spot in the country’s list of 339 Local Government Units (LGUs) awardees and the province’s eight LGUs.

Borongan City received the distinguished recognition for an exemplary performance of the City Government Unit achieving a high score, numerically equivalent to 90%, said DILG.

For his part, Mayor Agda pointed out that sometimes, some people need to be recognized for a job well done. But, he was quick to stress, that an award is just a bonus, because as state workers, they are expected to execute their mandate. For him to sustain the honor is even a greater challenge.
