VP Robredo ‘adding fuel to the fire’ by criticizing Duterte gov’t COVID-19 response - PRRD


President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in his nationally televised public addressed took a swipe at the Vice President for her statements made regarding the perceived no concrete plan by the government in battling the pandemic brought about by the coronavirus disease or COVID-19.

Duterte told Leni Robredo to stop adding “fuel to the fire.”

He reminded the Vice President that would only destroy the government if she continues to criticize his administration’s policies in tackling the COVID-19 health crisis.

“Please do not add fuel to the fire. You will just destroy government. Do not destroy the government because you will destroy people. If the government is destroyed, we will all float,” the chief executive said in a mix of English and Filipino.

The Chief Executive added that destroying the government — or even his death — would not the solve the country’s problems.

“Even if you say that I will die tomorrow, it cannot solve the problem of the country,” he said.

The statement made by Duterte was prompted by the 20 minute public speech of Robredo where she claims that there are apprehensions by businessmen to resume operations because  of the lack of confidence in the administration’s pandemic response.

The 75 year old President from Davao, reminded Robredo should be careful in making baseless accusations at a time when “people are desperate.”

“Let me emphasize: Confidence keeps the economy rolling. And the truth is, even before the pandemic, our economy could not reach its full potential because of lack of confidence,” Robredo said.

“This is why, especially now that we are grappling with a pandemic, the last thing that we need is even more instances that erode confidence,” she added.
