Any attempt to oust President Rodrigo Duterte will fail because the Chief Executive has the unequivocal support of the people. 

This according to administration senatorial bet and former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Bato dela Rosa, who on Wednesday said that whether the information regarding a plot to remove the President was accurate or not, the result would be the same.

Whether it is true or not, that plan to oust the President will not succeed.

“May mga nagsasabing totoo na may mga tao na nagtatrabaho na ipatalsik si Presidente, meron din namang tao na nagsasabing di daw credible ang intelligence tungkol dito,” said Dela Rosa.

“Tunay man o hindi, hindi magtatagumpay ang kahit anong plano na mapatanggal si Pangulo.” (Whether it is true or not, that plan to oust the President will not succeed)

The Mindanao native said that such efforts would be futile as the President enjoyed the trust and support of the Filipino people.

According to the career law enforcement officer, “sobrang laki kasi ng tiwala ng ating kababayan kay Presidente. Sa huling survey, halos 80 percent ng na survey aprub sa performance ni Presidente. At hindi lang ngayon yan; simula’t sapul, napakataas ng ratings ni Presidente.”

Dela Rosa explained that the first President from Mindanao had the overwhelming support of the country because he was true to his promise in 2016 to be a tough leader who would care for his constituents. 

“Nakikita at nararamdaman kasi yung tapang at malasakit ni Presidente. Yan ang ipinangako ni Presidente nung tumakbo sya nung 2016, at malinaw naman sa nakaraan na taon na natupad nya ang pangakong yun,” said Dela Rosa.

“Yung mga corrupt sa administrasyon nya, sinibak nya. Inayos ng gobyerno ang mga serbisyo; ngayon may libreng college education, libreng patubig para sa magsasaka. Sa isyu ng peace and order sa Mindanao, natugunan at naratify ang Bangsamoro Organic Law,” he added.

“Simple lang ang gusto ng tao; ang isang pinuno na may isang salita, at may ginagawa—at nakikita nila ito kay Presidente.”

The senatorial aspirant said he understood why many of the President’s supporters believe  there was a plot to unseat him, given that the chief executive has been at the receiving end of relentless criticism from the opposition.

“Di mo naman maiwasan na may maniwala sa mga balitang may gusto magpatalsik kay Pangulo, kasi kahit ano gawin nya eh, kaliwa’t-kanan ang banat sa kanya ng oposisyon,” (It cannot be avoided if there will be some who will believe news that the President will be ousted. He is being attacked left and right by the opposition) lamented Dela Rosa.

Despite this, Dela Rosa appealed to the President’s critics to set aside politics and focus on working to uplift the welfare of the country’s 104 million citizens. 

“Sana magtulungan na lang tayo para sa bayan. Lahat naman tayo gustong umasenso ang kababayan natin at maging progresibo at tahimik ang Pilipinas. Isangtabi na muna natin ang pulitika at magtrabaho muna tayo para sa kapakanan ng taumbayan.“
