Tom Villarin: Lapeña promotion shows Duterte cares more about ass-lickers over drug war

Loyalty definitely pays under this administration.

Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin is dismayed after President Rodrigo Duterte effectively promoted former Customs Commissioner Isidro Lapeña despite shabu-loaded magnetic lifters slipped past his watch and into Cavite under his watch.

Although plucked out of Customs, Lapeña was even rewarded a new post as Director General of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, a Cabinet rank. This follows the same fate for ex-Customs Chief Nicanor Faeldon, who was also moved to the Office of Civil Defense.

Villarin said this renders the war on drugs as a mere show.

“PDuts musical chairs policy in BOC shows he is not serious in licking the drug problem. As long as appointees in govt licks his *%! they get reassigned & promoted,” Villarin said. “Loyalty is its own reward at d expense of accountability & public service.”
