Sun.Star Pampanga - - STORIES! - BY PRINCESS CLEA ARCELLAZ Sun.Star Staff Reporter

The grad­u­a­tion cer­e­monies, which was led by Mayor Nor­berto "Ross" Gam­boa and Pam­panga Po­lice Pro­vin­cial Of­fice (PPPO) Di­rec­tor for Ad­min­is­tra­tion Su­per­in­ten­dent May­lyn Domingo, was held at Barangay Sta. Lu­cia in this town.

Gam­boa said that the grad­u­ates are the sec­ond batch of drug sur­ren­derees to fin­ish the re­for­ma­tion pro­gram.

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, he urged the re­formists to to­tally dis­en­gage them­selves from dan­ger­ous drugs and il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties.

He added that re­formists, as well as all drug sur­ren­derees, must max­i­mize the pro­gram of­fered to them by the na­tional govern­ment for their re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

Mean­while, Domingo con­grat­u­lated the grad­u­ates for their ini­tia­tive to re­form them­selves and aban­don the use of il­le­gal drugs.

She also urged other drug users and push­ers who refuse to turn them­selves in to vol­un­tar­ily sur­ren­der and spare them­selves from dan­ger.

She added that Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice and the na­tional govern­ment are se­ri­ous on the cam­paign against il­le­gal drugs and will not stop un­til the coun­try is cleansed of its pro­lif­er­a­tion.
