Senator Christopher ‘’Bong’’ Go lauded on Tuesday President Duterte for heeding his call for an expanded and bigger Task Force to combat all forms of systemic corruption in government.
‘’Napirmahan na po ng Pangulo ang kautusan sa DOJ (Department of Justice) na pangunahan ang imbestigasyon sa lahat ng mga ahensya ng gobyerno na nababalot ng anomalya at korapsyon. Wala tayong pipiliin, wala tayong sasantuhin. Kasuhan na ang mga dapat makasuhan. Tuluyan ang mga dapat tuluyan. Towards the last one year and eight months of this administration, we must not hesitate in our quest to eradicate corruption,’’ he said.(The President has just signed an order to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to head an investigation of all government agencies that are tainted with anomalies and corruption. We will spare no one, whoever that person is. Those liable must be charged.)
‘’Ako at si Pangulong Duterte ay iisa ang hangarin na wakasan ang korapsyon, kriminalidad, at iligal na droga sa ating lipunan upang makapag-iwan ng tunay na pagbabago sa bansa na ramdam ng taumbayan,’’ he added. (I and President Duterte have one objective — that is to end corruption, criminality, and illegal drugs in our society so that we could leave a legacy of change that is felt by the people.)
‘’Sasamahan ko ang Pangulo sa laban na ito until the last day of his term and I will continue to fight for the welfare and interest of each and every Filipino even beyond his presidency. Isa lang ang interes namin at iyan ay ang kabutihan ng mga Pilipino,’’ he said. (I will be joining the President in this fight. We have one interest and that is to serve the interest and well-being of all Filipinos.)
Go, chairman of the Senate Health and Demography Committee, served as Special Assistant to President Duterte.
