She also said that since the creation of the NTF ELCAC, there is a sudden change from a military-based approach to civilian-led approach in countering insurgency.
LGOO II Buenaventura, also, one of the focal persons of the DILG Aurora #DisiplinaMuna National Campaign team, discussed the seven (7) programs of the #DisiplinaMuna Advocacy.
In her presentation, she mentioned that the sidewalks are for the people and the hardest part of this advocacy is maintaining the municipalities ‘drug cleared’. “Without the culture of discipline, development and peace cannot be achieved. Because it is everyone’s responsibility not solely of the barangay officials.”
Specifically, the campaign, which was implemented first the City of Manila, with ‘Yorme’Isko Moreno as its bannerman, aims to sustain the policies of the DILG — including road clearing operations, disaster preparedness and resilience procedures, smoking ban, ease of doing business, liquor ban, tourist spots clean-up and implementation of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council.
