Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman on Sunday said Vice President Leni Robredo was sacked as cochair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs after less than a month in office because she took her job “seriously.”

The Liberal Party lawmaker said President Rodrigo Duterte couldn’t afford to have Robredo succeed in an area that he had failed.

“The mistake of Vice President Leni Robredo is that she took her role as anti-drugs czar very seriously while President Rodrigo Duterte considered her appointment as a flippant joke and an off-the-cuff reaction to her criticisms on his bloody war against drugs,” Lagman said.

“From the very start, Robredo was set up to fail,” he added.

“The President cannot allow Robredo to succeed in his centerpiece program of a violent anti-narcotics drive where he himself has dismally failed,” Lagman said.
