July 13, 2016- Drive by the massive campaign against illegal drugs, Gov. Ryan Luis Singson initiated surprise drug testing among the employees of the Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur.
Governor Ryan called for an emergency meeting for all employees of Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur to conduct a surprise drug test. Gov. Ryan was the first in the line followed by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan members. During the activity, the Provincial Capitol Hall was guarded by policemen to assure that no one can escape the test.
Those who will turn out positive of drugs will be immediately terminated from their positions.
“We should uphold the public trust and govt. officials should be the role model. If someone turned positive in this drug test, he will be immediately dismissed. It’s too late now for them to surrender.” Gov. Ryan insisted.
In a grateful manner, PGIS employees complied and submitted themselves in drug testing. This is to show their sincere support for the government’s tough campaign against illegal drugs.
Meanwhile, Gov Ryan directed all Municipal Mayors to do the same in their own municipalities on July 15, 2016.
The activity aims to eradicated and free the province from illegal drugs in support to the movement of the National Government. # PGIS-PIO
