MANILA, Philippines — Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said Wednesday (28 November 2019) President Rodrigo Duterte “immediately removed Vice President Leni Robredo as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) because Robredo is unreliable.”
“Walang tiwala si Pangulong Duterte,” Go said in an interview in Senate. “Imbes na makatulong (si Robredo) sa kampanya sa ilegal na droga, mas lalong binubulabog,” the senator added.
Go explained that Robredo was allegedly “working counter” to plans and not of any help to the (Duterte) administration.
“Lahat ng ginagawa ng administrasyon (Duterte) mali (para sa kanya). Papaano mo pagkakatiwalaan ‘yung mga pumoposisyong oposisyon at bibigyan mo ng napakasensitibong trabaho bilang ICAD chair?” Go said.
According to the senator, Robredo has been busy talking and sharing information with critics of the Duterte government. (Cate Pallarco/IAMIGO/CNS)
