Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said he would resign his post as he told Senator Bong Go.
But this is not going to happen now, even as he had promised to Go he would make the “supreme sacrifice” of resigning his post.
This is going to happen only after he has cleared his name.
Duque is at the center of investigations by the House and Senate over the Department of Health’s handling of the multi-billion-peso Covid-19 response fund.
“Ayusin ko lang ito, yan ang aking pakiusap, bigyan ako ng panahon i-clear ang COA (Commission on Audit) findings/observations at aming action plan. And then I am leaving. Alam naman nila yan ang aking position patungkol diyan,” said Duque in an interview wth DZBB.
