Indict, jail them or fire them so they lose gov't benefits; Why ask them to resign?

If the government is really serious about fighting corruption, corrupt government officials and employees should be formally charged and jail or, at least, dishonorably discharged so they lose their government benefits. The President seems to have a very a bad game plan.
Corrupt government officials and personnel should “have the sense” to resign, President Duterte said as he warned that he did not want to humiliate them in public. Duterte noted that getting rid of corruption was one of the campaign promises that helped him achieve a landslide victory during the 2016 presidential race. “I was the only one carrying the message that was appropriate at that time: corruption, drugs. I won’t hold back on that, my God. If you are into corruption, just leave. I’ll give you time. For those who are into it now, in government, published or otherwise, may you have the sense just to tender the resignation,” Duterte said during a gathering of educators in Davao City last Friday.
