SARA DUTERTE — The vice-presidential aspirant said that the Uniteam BBM-Sara’s stand against illegal drugs was “united and unequivocal”.
On Wednesday, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said in a statement that she had taken a drug test and that it came back negative.
According to her, she voluntarily took a drug test upon the request of her Uniteam partner, presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., to support the call for transparency as political aspirants for the 2022 elections were seeking the trust of the Filipino people.
“I took a drug test that yielded negative of any illegal substances,” Mayor Sara said. “This test, I took voluntarily upon the request of my Uniteam partner, Senator Bongbong Marcos, to support the call for transparency as aspiring public officials seeking the trust of our fellow Filipinos.“
Mayor Sara also said that the Uniteam BBM-Sara’s stand against illegal drugs was “united and unequivocal”.
She added that this can be seen from both their negative drug tests as well as their common stance against the proliferation of illegal drugs and the need for effective measures of prevention, enforcement, and rehabilitation.
Last Tuesday, Bongbong bared that he took a cocaine test and submitted the negative test result to law enforcement agencies after President Rodrigo Duterte had claimed that a presidential aspirant was allegedly using cocaine.
Mayor Sara also stressed that other compelling issues continued to challenge the Philippines’ ability to provide long-term safety and security for the Filipino people as important as the war against illegal drugs is.
“Therefore, it is crucial in this electoral season that we focus on the substantial qualifications of those that seek to lead our country,” Mayor Sara said.
