Duterte assigns Francis Tolentino as Ompong point person

Sep 14, 2018 @ 11:23

President Rodrigo Duterte has designated Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino as his point person in the government’s mobilization for Typhoon Ompong.

Duterte wants the Cavite politiko to be his eyes and ears in the government’s disaster response operations.

“Ikaw na lang ang conduit ko sa kanila para isa na lang para I can have the whole gamut of information,” he told Tolentino.

“Ikaw na lang ang representing the Office of the President. Cut off ako,” he added.

Duterte earlier tasked Tolentino to coordinate the national government’s efforts during the recent Mayon Volcano eruption.
