Game on! Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has reportedly issued an official statement that grants “vice president” Leni Robredo the resources to mount her own crusade against crime her way.
[Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo] said Duterte has ordered all state agencies to “support and cooperate” with Robredo as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs until the President steps down on June 30, 2022.
“It will be a good working relationship. In fact since the President’s giving the blanket authority of co-chair then she can do everything she wants with the President supporting her,” he said.
This is Robredo’s chance to prove she is not all talk and no substance but is actually a true leader who can walk her talk.
Ball is on Robredo’s court. Watch this space!
