Health secretary Francisco Duque III should resign from his post for failed leadership amid the pandemic causing the country to be at “forever GCQ”, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan Secretady General Renato Reyes said Monday.
“Duque should resign as DOH Secretary and IATF head for failing to meet the necessary health requirements for the easing of quarantine restrictions, one year since the government first imposed the ECQ,” Reyes said.
“We are stuck at ‘forever GCQ’ because of failed leadership in pandemic response. And to think this morning, he said entire PH ready for MGCQ!?” he asked.
Duque has been the subject of several calls for resignation since last year due to the country’s pandemic response situation and the alleged fraudulent transactions in the Philippine Health Insurance Corp.
