DAVAO CITY, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte admitted “I have dismissed Licuanan today.”
Duterte was referring to Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairperson Patricia Licuanan who earlier today claimed Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea called he Sunday night and asked her to reign.
In a speech during the turn over of the multi-million Philippine National Police Crime Laboratory here, Duterte said “I have dismissed Licuanan today, ‘yung sa Marina (the one from the Maritime Industry Authority), and many will follow.”
Cleansing his administration against erring and corrupt officials will continue, Duterte said.
He added “I’m poised to terminate about 39 police officers or two to 3 generals.”-Editha Z. Caduaya/Newsline.ph
