In Metro Manila, Quezon City may play prominently in the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte SONA speech since former National Capital Region Police Office chief Director Joel Pagdilao was a Quezon City Police Department chief before his promotion to head the Metro Manila police force.
Police District director Chief Superintendent Edgardo Tinio was QCPD head until he was relieved from office by the Duterte Administration. Both PNP top ranking generals were pinpointed by President Digong as among 5 high ranking uniformed protectors of DRUG LORDS.
President Duterte also mentioned that at least 35 mayors/governors are involved in the DRUG TRADE in their respective municipalities, cities or provinces.
Among the most prominent names that may be named in today’s SONA are Ozamis City Mayor Parojinog and 4 municipal mayors of Misamis Occidental Province (Navarro, Yap, Gutierrez and Mahilac). Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog could also be named and publicly shamed.
Metro Manila, which has the greatest concentration of drug users in the whole Philippines, SHOULD NOT be spared from the Presidential speech with a number of city mayors subjected to ridicule. Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Baustista (drug protector or simply incompetent?) could be negatively mentioned since Quezon City has one of the highest drug rates in the Philippines. A brother of Bistek, now city councilor Hero Bautista, is a known drug user.
