Duterte on Cory

DAGUPAN CITY – National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr., said that President Rodrigo Duterte can solve the problems in Mindanao.

In an interview of Bombo Radyo with Esperon, he has known the president for a very long time, including the president’s utmost desire to put an end to all insurgencies in the said region.

He added that it is the president who kept on convincing the military force to do their job well in order for Mindanao to finally achieve peace.

Meanwhile, Esperon proposed a one-year extension of Martial Law in Mindanao because of the attacks launched by terrorists particularly in Sulu.

He also reiterated this after Duterte’s fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA). Duterte expressed his openness to Esperon’s idea.
