Rody vows to crush Abu Sayyaf, corruption, drugs in 2017

President Duterte has reiterated his commitment to eradicate the Abu Sayyaf during his New Year Command Conference with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Malacañan last Friday, Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said.

“Idiniin din ng Presidente na ‘yung kanyang commitment to end the ASG, ‘yung Abu Sayyaf Group,” Abella said in an interview over Radyo ng Bayan on Saturday, January 7.

Abella said the security forces gave the President their security update during the joint command conference as well as the current law enforcement activities.

For the President’s part, Abella said President Duterte reiterated his firm stance against corruption as well as his administration’s campaign against illegal drugs and terrorism. “Ni-reiterate niya ang kanyang guidance regarding corruption lalo na, sinasabi niya ‘yan kasi hindi naman nawawala ‘yan just like that and then ‘yung campaign against drugs and terrorism,” Abella said.

Abella said the joint command conference lasted for two hours. He described it as a “substantial and a very fruitful meeting which puts the President in touch once more with this branch of government.”
