Drug war a failure? Bong Go: Let Pinoys judge

0 22

Senator Bong Go on Thursday said the Filipinos should be the judge if the Duterte government’s war on drugs is a “success or not.”

“Paano magiging failure kung 82% nga (ng mga Pilipino) ang sumasang-ayon? Tanungin na lang po natin ang taumbayan,” Go said in a ambush interview.

He made the remark in reaction to the statement of former president Benigno Aquino III who asked why President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Vice President Leni Robredo as drug czar if he does not trust her.

Go said that Robredo was appointed so she can have the opportunity for resolving the drug problem herself after she referred to the drug war as “a failure.”

“In-appoint po siya ni Pangulong Duterte dahil sa kaka-comment nya na hindi raw maganda ang pamamalakad ni Pangulong Duterte labanan ang iligal na droga,” Go said.

“Sabi ng Pangulo, ‘sige tumulong ka dito kung ano ang p’wede mong maitulong,’” he added.

The senator from Davao said that Aquino had his chance to curb the drug problem during his time in office.

“Alam niyo dating Pangulong Aquino, dumaan na po ang panahon ninyo na dapat noon niyo na sinugpo itong iligal na drogang ito. Dumami ang mga adik, dumami ang mga sindikato, dumami ang drug lord nung panahon mo,” Go said.

“Ngayon po, si Pangulong Duterte pilit niyang sugpuin ito bagama’t napakahirap po ay hindi po makakatulong ang iyong komento. Isa ka sa nagpadagdag niyan,” he said.
