Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Aaron Aquino doubts Vice President Leni Robredo will be more effective in leading the government’s anti-drug campaign than President Rodrigo Duterte.

In an interview on CNN Philippines’ “The Source” Monday (November 4), Aquino said Robredo is clueless about matters related to the drug trade and how to fight it.

“Personally, if you will ask me, sa palagay ko she will fail,” he said.

Aquino said that compared to Robredo, Duterte has extensive experience about fighting illegal drugs since it has been his advocacy since he was mayor of Davao City.

“Nagsimula na si Presidente, piskal pa lang siya marami na siyang kaso na puro drugs ang kaso niya. He cleaned Davao City during that time and makikita mo ‘yung experience niya on how to clean and to make drug-cleared Davao,” he said.

Duterte has offered Robredo to become the administration’s drug czar after she called the administration’s drug war a “failure.” Malacañang said the Vice President will have the rank of Cabinet Secretary should she accept the offer.
