Written by: Alan Palma Sr.

Senator Franklin Drilon directly appealed to the stakeholders in Boracay to remove the illegal structures that could destroy the island.

Drilon particularly mentioned the structures that are within 25 meters from the beach line.

This appeal was delivered during the appointment of BFI’s new set of officials last Saturday.

In his speech, the senator said, that this is the only way to preserve the beauty of Boracay for the next generation.

Meanwhile, Drilon cited as an example, his move of clearing out establishments at the Iloilo River, two years ago to save the mentioned body of water.

He also bluntly stated that if there’s “Political Will,” no problems cannot be solved.

The Senator added that alongside the BFI, he will do everything in order to resolve the problem that Boracay is now facing.
