MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Buoyed up by her appointment as Co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD), Vice President Leni Robredo today formed her own team to help her oversee the country’s war on drugs.
In her first official action as Drug Czar, Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles that she has tapped the expert services of Otso Diretso, the Opposition team that lost big-time in the 2019 Senatorial elections.
“I couldn’t think of any other group of dedicated and passionate individuals who can help me win the war on drugs than these eight individuals,” Robredo said.
“We’re on our way towards totally eliminating illegal drugs in our beloved country,” she added. “This is the beginning of the resurrection of our Liberal Party — the true party of the Filipino people.”
