Bawal tumanggi! Duterte badly wants Harry Roque to replace Abella – report

Oct 25, 2017 @ 10:46

President Rodrigo Duterte is dead set on getting KABAYAN party-list Harry Roque as his spokesperson that the lawmaker may not have a choice but to say yes.

Citing a source, veteran journalist Ellen Tordesillas quoted Duterte as telling Roque that “I will not take ‘No’ for an answer” regarding his offer to become presidential spokesperson.

Tordesillas said in her October 24 blog post that Roque did not confirm information regarding Duterte’s offer, though he said he will be meeting the President this week.

Rumors have swirled that a major shakeup will happen in the Presidential Communications Operations Office soon.

Reportedly in danger of losing their posts are Abella and Communications Secretary Martin Andanar.

Another version of the rumor has it that Abella will replace Andanar as PCOO chief.
