Duterte on DDB to head anti-drugs body: Maybe Leni’s right
By Prince Golez
Vice President Leni Robredo may be right in her suggestion to transfer the leadership of Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) to the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), President Rodrigo Duterte said.
In her 40-page report on the war on drugs, Robredo said the DDB should lead the anti-drug campaign instead of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
“I cannot make a sweeping statement and say that she is right. Hanggang maybe lang yan, maybe she is right. Maybe I will listen, but for her stint of 18 days with ICAD seems to me a very short time to get a very good picture of what the PNP is,” Duterte said in an interview on ABS-CBN.
“Hindi yan, chief-chief lang, Leni. You have to go for the jugular,” he added.
Duterte appointed Robredo as co-chair of the ICAD on October 31 but fired her over two weeks after.
