Facilitated by the Provincial Legal Office and Provincial Health Office, around 440 employees of the provincial government underwent random drug testing on Monday, March 20.
According to a statement from the Provincial Information Office, the drug testing was in support of the national government’s war on drugs under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration. The test was conducted through urine sampling.
It can be recalled that last year the provincial government also conducted a surprise drug test among its employees, wherein all those sampled registered negative for illegal drugs use.
The provincial government is expected to conduct another set of drug testing anytime soon, based on media pronouncement.
