PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has given himself a score of six on a scale of one to ten for his performance in his first 100 days in office.
Although three-quarters of Filipinos were satisfied with his performance in office according to a survey, the President is giving himself a modest performance rating for himself.
“On a scale of 1-10, I give myself a 6,” the President said.
Duterte’s biggest accomplishments include crime reduction of 49 percent.
Authorities have seized P3.6 billion illegal drugs as of September this year, according to Malacanang’s record of the President’s first 100 days accomplishments.
As a result of the “Double Barrel” police operations, there were 22,503 arrests of pushers and drug users. Oplan Tokhang operations netted 7332,698 surrenderers.
In other developments a high tech shabu laboratory was uncovered in Pampanga piggery and another in Arayat also in Pampanga. Duterte’s assumption to the presidency stopped the laglag bala scam in the country’s premier airport.
The President scored 91 percent trust and 76 percent satisfaction rating among those surveyed by pollster Social Weather Stations.
Duterte also said that the drug rehabilitation center in Nueva Ecija funded by the Chinese government is set to be completed
“Four million drug addicts is no joke. We are not a rich country. It is only China who has helped us. I requested the military to open their camps to allow people who’d want to donate rehab facilities,” he said during the National Banana Congress in Davao City.
“China is about to complete sub rosa. Walang hambog, walang news, neither any publicity, it’s about to be completed,” he added.
The President said the rehabilitation center situated at Fort Magsaysay in Palayan City, Nueva Ecija would be able to house at least 1,400 drug addicts.
The Department of National Defense (DND) has earlier said that it was considering four military camps to serve as drug rehabilitation centers.
Aside from Fort Magsaysay, DND said it was also looking into Camp Macario Peralta in Jamindan, Camp Kiribatan in Bukidnon, and Camp Capinpin in Tanay, Rizal. A National Drug Rehabilitation Program with about P1.4 billion funding for drug users and pushers who have surrendered is also in the works to help them return to and become productive members of society.
