Public Works Secretary Mark Villar has the full trust and confidence of President Duterte despite corruption allegations in his department, Malacañang said Thursday.
Duterte in his taped address yesterday claimed that DPWH projects are rife with corruption.
“Full trust and confidence kay Secretary Villar. Despite corruption in DPWH, naka-deliver po si Secretary Villar,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a virtual presser.
“It helps na mas maraming pera ang pamilya ni Secretary Villar kesa sa DPWH,” he added.
Mark is the son of former Senate President and real estate tycoon Manny Villar and Senator Cynthia Villar.
Roque likewise raised the likelihood of an investigation into the corruption allegations linked to the agency. “Possible gawin yan pero hayaan na muna natin yan dahil sa ngayon nakatutok pa ang Presidente sa PhilHealth,” he said.
