ZAMBOANGA CITY -- All of this city’s 98 barangays have passed the 2018 Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council (BADAC) functionality and effectiveness audit.

This was announced Friday by Isidro Cillo Jr., operations division chief of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) city office, citing that nine of the 98 earned high passing scores of 88 to 98 points.

Cillo named the top barangays and their corresponding points as Labuan, 98; Curuan, 95; Rio Hondo, 95; Malagutay, 91.50; Calabasa, 90.50; Mercedes, 90; Putik, 89; Pasonanca, 88; and Recodo, 91 points.

Cillo said the rest of the barangays received “moderate” scores ranging from 51 to 83 points.

He said barangays Lapakan and Guiwan scored 51.50 points and 51 points, respectively, the lowest among the 98 villages.

Barangay Recodo may be notorious as the most drug-affected village but “it’s BADAC is functional whose members are really working,” Cillo said.

He said the evaluation, which lasted almost two months, was in compliance with DILG-Dangerous Drugs Board Joint Memorandum Circular 2018-1 on the Implementing Guidelines on the Functionality and Effectiveness of the local Anti-Drug Abuse Councils.
