Robredo to Duterte: ‘Kung ayaw niya ako, diretsuhin niya ko’

Vice President Leni Robredo said that President Rodrigo Duterte should tell her directly if he wants her out as co-chair of the inter-agency committee on anti-illegal drugs (ICAD).

This following Duterte’s statement that he doesn’t trust her.

“Eh dapat deretsuhin na lang ako. Deretso naman ako kausap. Kung ayaw niya ako dito in the first place, bakit ako in-appoint? Kung nagkamali siya sa pag-appoint sa akin, sabihin nya lang,” Robredo told reporters.

Robredo, on the other hand, said that she would not quit on the job given to her.

“Ako never ako umayaw sa trabaho kapag binigyan ako ng trabaho. Kahit gaano iyon kaliit, gagawin ko iyong aking lahat ng makakaya para gampanan ang trabahong binigay sa akin,” the Vice President added.

“It is always worth working for something we believe in. Naniniwala ako na marami akong macoco-contribute sa kampanya laban sa ilegal na droga,” she added.

Robredo was appointed as ICAD chair following her remarks that there’s a need to tweak the war on drugs.
