Andanar on his Daily Inquirer Column published on Monday reveasl why Rodrigo Duterte is such in a hurry to get rid of the country's illegal drugs
“President Duterte aims to be the one to crack the riddle of our poverty. That is why he wants to break the back of the drug problem in only six months: so that he can spend the rest of his term tackling the poverty question. Building inclusive growth is part of his final social-economic reform agenda,” Andanar said.
As a presidential candidate, Duterte vowed to solve the country’s problem on drugs within the first six months of his term. However, he asked for a six-month extension to deliver on his promise. [source]
