President Rodrigo Duterte has advised Senator Bong Go to be relentless in the fight against corruption even if it meant going after their friends and campaign financiers.

“Senator Bong Go here, who is a crusader. Sinabi ko, Bong, huwag kang mag-ano. Maski kaibigan mo o kaibigan natin, maski tumulong, maski nagbigay ng pera na tulong pagka nandiyan sa corruption. Eh wala namang pinag-usapan na mag-contribute ka sa akin tapos mag-corrupt ka,” said Duterte in a briefing.

“Sabagay itong — hindi naman corrupt, mayaman na. Ang nagbibigay sa eleksyon ‘yung mga mayaman. Hindi na kailangan mag-corrupt, wala sa gobyerno,” he added.

Duterte has ordered the Office of the Ombudsman, Commission on Audit and Department of Justice to step up the anti-corruption drive especially against politikos squeezing bribes from telcos building towers and bureaucrats plundering Phillippine Health Insurance Corp.
