Mayor Abby Binay is one brave woman when she ordered 5 posh villages in Makati to cooperate with the compulsory police inspection with regards to Oplan Tokhang or President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs. Nevertheless, she is not alone in this clean up drive in Makati. Her husband, Congressman for district 2, Luis Campos is leading the pact on that side and Congressman Monsour del Rosario in district 1.
This is evident during the recent first SONA of President Duterte – when the Makati Oplan Tokhang team met PNP Director General Ronald dela Rosa or Bato who is spearheading the campaign from the side of the authorities.
Contrary to their usual images of casual and hard working public servants, they were all neatly dressed up for the occasion. The Makati team following the traditional Filipino business attire and Bato with his decorated general look. This proves to show that when a campaign is greatly coordinated by government officials, disasters can be avoided.
