Robredo failed to see 'good picture' of drug war: Pres.Duterte

Can anyone understand the wholeness of how an organization for just a mere 18 days? Much like the Vice President in her brief stay as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo failed to see “good picture” of the current administrations current and ongoing war on illegal trade.

Re the suggestion of the Vice President that the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) should take ICAD's helm instead of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

"I cannot make a sweeping statement to say that she is right.Hanggang ‘maybe’ lang siya (‘Maybe’ is the only answer we can give her). Maybe she is right. Maybe I will listen," Duterte said during an an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN aired on Friday night. "But for her stint of 18 days with ICAD, it seems to me (that) it's (a) very short time to get a good picture."

In the report released by the Vice President, she suggested that DDB, not the PDEA, should manage the ICAD because the former can craft policies that would engage all member-agencies of the inter-agency committee, unlike the latter.

The DDB is one of the member-agencies of ICAD.

ICAD, was created through Executive Order 15 inked by Pres. Duterte last March 6, 2017, is tasked to ensure the member-agencies' implementation of and compliance with all policies, laws, and issuances on the government's anti-illegal drug campaign, in an "integrated and synchronized manner."
