Secretary na sana: Duterte reveals asking Doris Bigornia to head DSWD

Aug 22, 2017 @ 12:19

ABS-CBN’s Mutya ng Masa was President Rodrigo Duterte’s choice to replace former Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo.

In a press conference at the Malago Clubhouse in Malacañang Monday (August 21), Duterte revealed that he asked broadcaster Doris Bigornia to head the Department of Social Welfare and Development but she declined.

“I just offered it to Doris Bigornia, ayaw niya. Totoo, I’m not joking,” he said.

Duterte said he only asked Bigornia to work, avoid corruption and “enjoy the duty of serving your countrymen.”

“‘Yan lang lahat ang sinabi ko. Whoever it is or would be, I am asking you just to work sincerely, earn your keep for the day, do not corrupt the money and I would be happy. I would even shake your hand a thousand times,” he said.

Malacañang said Duterte has been searching for a new DSWD secretary since the Commission on Appointments rejected Taguiwalo.
