Angel Locsin is one of the celebrities who support the “Resign/Fire Duque” call
Several groups and individuals have been calling out to Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque to resign or be fired by the President and Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin said that it is “really timely”.
Angel is very active in doing her charitable endeavors and taking her part as a Filipino citizen in issues that matters to the whole country. Just recently, the actress shared an appreciation post for all the health workers who have been working hard since the pandemic has started.
During a recent interview, based on the article in The Philippine Star, the A-list actress said that Duque’s resignation should happen at this point in time.
In the question saying that if she will fire the DOH Secretary if she is the President, she answered: “I think it’s really timely. Kailangan ng peace of mind ng mga tao.”
She clarified that her answer is objective and it does not mean that she is accusing Duque of anything. “Kasi ako rin naman naakusahan publicly na without going through due process. So, hindi magandang pakiramdam ‘yun,” she added.
The actress also said that being objective and setting aside her feelings, if she is the President, she will indeed fire the DOH Secretary.
“Not because naniniwala ako he is corrupt. Wala po sa ganon, but because ‘yung pag-e-explain lang sa mga tao na dito napunta ‘yung tax natin na binabayaran. I think kakain na ‘yun ng oras. Isa sa mga magandang ibigay sana ng gobyerno natin ngayon eh ‘yung peace of mind ng mga tao. At hope na bukas paggising natin may magandang mangyayari,” Angel Locsin said.
She also stressed that it will take Duque a long time to clear his name against the recent corruption against him and there is someone who will lead the health department.
