Together with the City Government, DILG Manila Field Office, led by City Director Atty. Rolynne Javier facilitated the activity dubbed as ‘Sustaining Manila’s Good Governance and War on Drugs: The Launching of MASA MASID cum Orientation on Federalism.”

In his message, Estrada expressed his support to the government’s objective of eliminating illegal drugs. 

“Tulad ng ating Pangulo, naniniwala din ako na ang pagsugpo sa iligal na droga at korapsyon ay susi sa tunay nap ag-unlad ng Pilipinas.” he said, noting that the MASA MASID program will greatly help the City in its goal of eradicating illegal drugs and corruption. 

DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2016-116 or the MASA MASID Program was also tackled in the launch to help barangay officials and community leaders understand their invaluable role against illegal drugs, as well as helping drug surrenderees in leading a better life free from drugs. 

Participants were also oriented on the Ugnayan ng mga Barangay at Simbahan initiative, which encourages collaboration between religious groups and barangay officials for development projects, including anti-illegal drugs efforts. 

Federalism was also discussed during the launch; DILG was tasked to lead the information and education campaign on the proposed shift of government.   

The activity was capped with the Pledge of Commitment of stakeholders. Manila City Administrator Atty. Ericson Alconvendaz led the participants in taking the Pledge of Commitment, as well as its symbolic signing. #LGOO V Maricor Dayandante and LGOO III Kelvin John Gaen
