Osmeña says no one’s excused from random drug-testing, even himself
Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña said that he will strictly enforce the mandatory random drug testing for all employees of the city government – including himself.
“The mandatory random drug tests will be strictly applied to everyone in the city government, up to and including the mayor himself,” said Osmeña.
This development came after a public school teacher reportedly refused to undergo drug testing of conducted by the City Office of Substance Abuse Prevention, claiming that he was sick.
Osmeña said that he wants the teacher to be removed from out of the education system to serve as a warning for other government employees who will refuse to submit themselves in a drug testing.
“No excuses will be accepted, especially from someone who’s supposed to be responsible for educating our children,” the mayor added.
