Speaking on Friday, September 30, during the induction ceremony of new officers of Zamboanga del Norte United Correspondents (ZNUC) – a group of local media practitioners here, Evasco said that no amount of talking would bring about destabilization. Plotters, he said, "have to have an armed component" to pursue their plans.
"So karon, sigi silang pagkumbinsi sa military ug pulis, kini si (Senator Antonio) Trillanes (IV), nga mo-apil sa ilang kausa pagpukan ni Duterte," Evasco said. (Now, they are convincing the military and police, this Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, to join in their cause to topple Duterte.)
The Cabinet secretary explained that Liberal Party could not accept that they would be defeated by somebody who comes from Mindanao.
"That's because they look down on us, they did not know that our minds were molded by our experiences, our studies, and our outlook of life that the elite don't have," Evasco said.
He added that the elite group first tried to destroy Duterte by using the media, riding on issues of summary killings, extrajudicial killings, and the burial of former president Ferdinand Marcos.
