Ex-President Duterte Wants to Help DILG Sec on Battle with Illegal Drugs
Ex-President Rodrigo Duterte offers help to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Benhur Abalos to fight illegal drugs.
On his official Facebook page, DILG Secretary Benhur Abalos posted a video of the former president of the Philippines congratulating him on his birthday. Duterte offered his skills in combatting illegal drugs in his video greeting to Abalos, adding he would never hesitate to assist the secretary.
“Kung kailangan mo ako, paalamin mo lang ako. Kung gusto mo ubusin ang adik sa Maynila, itapon mo sakin, ako na bahala,” the tough talking former president said.
Duterte stressed that he was joking, but that if the situation worsened, he may consider assisting. “Just the same, kung magka-leche leche. Nandiyan ako. Tawagan mo lang ako. Walang problema,” he said.
Based on the video greeting, he also lauded Abalos’ efforts as a public officer. Meanwhile, Abalos thanked the former president in the caption for making her birthday special.
“I am deeply honored and grateful to receive a birthday greeting from no less than the former President Rodrigo Duterte. Your leadership and service to our country have left a lasting impact, and I am truly humbled to receive a personal message from you,” he said.
“Your dedication to the welfare of the Filipino people is commendable, and I am inspired by your unwavering commitment to our nation. Thank you for making my birthday even more memorable with your thoughtful greeting!” he added in his post.
Meanwhile, Duterte just shrugged off the drug war probe of the International Criminal Court (ICC). According to government statements, nearly 6,000 suspects have been slain during the admin’s war on drugs.
