MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Leni Robredo has finally responded to President Rodrigo Duterte’s challenge that she assume the position of Philippine Drug Czar for 6 months.
In a statement released to the media, Robredo said:
”I am humbled by the President’s offer for me to be his Drug Czar even for just six months. I wholeheartedly accept.
It has always been my dream to be the CEO of the country’s leading drug store chain, Mercury Drug. I know I can utilize my enormous talent to ensure that the drugs made available to the Filipino masses are always “bago (new).”
It is about time that our government pay full attention to the plight of the less fortunate among our countrymen.
I promise that in the next 6 months, Mercury Drug will beat out all its biggest competitors, including Watson’s.”
