Hundreds of people eagerly awaited the arrival of President Rodrigo Duterte in front of the city hall in Ozamis City earlier today.

They were not disappointed.

The president, together with Philippine National Police Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, made good on his promise to visit the recently controversial city and completed his itinerary which consisted of talking to the troops and awarding of 7 medals to outstanding members of the police force who joined in the biggest anti-drug raid in the history of Ozamiz City which resulted in the deaths of alleged narcopoliticians Mayor Aldong Parojinog Sr. and his brother, Board Member Octavio Parojinog.

In his speech during the awarding ceremony, Duterte advised the troop not ti be involved in drugs as it will destroy the society.

Lastly, President Duterte inspected and received the confiscated and surrendered firearms as a result of the recent crackdown on drugs in the city.

Hundreds of firearms were surrendered to the president, several of which belonged to barangay captains of Ozamiz City.





Led by Senior Inspector Jovie Espenido, who was recently rated as the most requested chief of police across the country, the anti-illegal drug raid also resulted to the arrest of several Ozamiz City public officials including Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog who is currently detained in Manila.

Police Chief Inspector Espenido received a special award from President Duterte and PNP Chief Bato last week because of his huge contribution to the war against illegal drugs.


Meanwhile, here are the comments of the Ozamisnons on the official Ozamis City Facebook Page. Most of the Ozamisnon netizens are visibly excited by the president’s arrival and some are hopeful that this will finally herald a change in Ozamiz City. 



Rick Cruz: Free Ozamis! I hope we can finally achieve true progress in Ozamiz!



April Erquita: Welcome to our City Tatay! We all pray for our city to be peaceful.

Most of the other comments expressed concern for the president, mentioning that there may still be Parojinog supporters who might try to do him harm.

Regardless, Duterte will always be our Tatay Digong: NO FEAR!
