After VP Leni Robredo was appointed by President Duterte as co-chair of the Inter Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs or ICAD, some netizens commented that Robredo has been acting like she is head of the said agency.
However, some netizens, including the Robredo camp appealed to netizens not to be harsh at the Vice President since she is still learning the ropes of her new role.
Good thing a Facebook post aptly titled “ETIQUETTE FOR LENI ROBREDO” has been circulating online and if the number of engagements is any indication, it appears netizens are endorsing this for the VP to live by in her post as co-chairperson.
Adolfo Mortera, the author of the FB post, is a Duterte supporter and critic of the Vice President and the Liberal Party.
In the FB post, Mortera reminded her Robredo that she is just the co-chairperson and the Chairman is Director Aaron Aquino of PDEA.
And basic courtesy says that Robredo need to consult Chair Aquino, not bypass him on plans and strategies and most importantly, she does not decide alone.
Mortera also said that Robredo’s post is not Cabinet-level rank, hence she cannot ask or demand for additional budget.
And lastly, Mortera reminded Robredo to be a team player and leave her brand of POWER-HUNGRY YELLOW POLITICS BEHIND. Otherwise, she should LEAVE ICAD ASAP!

🇵🇭ETIQUETTE FOR LENI ROBREDO
▪The President appointed you as Co-Chair of ICAD.
▪The Chair is Director Aaron Aquino of PDEA.
▪As such, basic courtesy requires that you consult Chair Aquino, and not bypass him on plans and strategies for the Drug War without consulting him and the ICAD Team. You don’t decide on that alone. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT???
▪That also means, you should not call on another country like USA or entity like the UN and HRW and engage them in our internal affairs! CONSULT YOUR CHAIR AND THE ICAD TEAM FIRST! DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TOO????
▪As Co-Chair, you are expected to report to the President, in tandem with Chair Aaron Aquino, on plans and programs or any changes you want done on existing approaches!
▪Your role as Co-Chair is NOT A CABINET-LEVEL RANK; it’s a committee, and as such, you have no bandwidth to demand for additional budget or hire personnel to perform your task.
▪ICAD has been performing well since it was created by PRRD in 2017, so what do we need the extra budget for? Work within existing resources!
▪Stop acting like you are God’s solution to the War on Drugs. Last time I checked, your past performance as Housing Czar was a complete failure! Even your position as Vice-President is still under question, so how’s that for credibility?
▪STOP YOUR BLAHBLAHS AND PRESSCONS. HIT THE DIRT ROAD AND ACT!
▪STOP OVER-REACHING, because we all know the narrow limits of your skills and intelligence.
▪Don’t presume and assume, because we all know your motivations.
▪OBSERVE BASIC ETIQUETTE AND PROFESSIONAL COURTESY.
▪LASTLY, BE A TEAM PLAYER.
IF YOU CAN’T LEAVE YOUR BRAND OF POWER-HUNGRY YELLOW POLITICS BEHIND, LEAVE ICAD ASAP!
