Duterte: I want to make PH like Davao, no crime, no drugs

NEWS BY PNA: President Rodrigo R. Duterte said he had "little time left" to replicate the success of the anti-drug war, which he started during his term as mayor in Davao City, in the entire country.

"Look at Davao now, you can walk around. Maybe it’s not really the safest city in the Philippines but you can walk about whatever -- night-time," Duterte said in his speech during the inauguration of Northern Mindanao Wellness and Reintegration Center in Bukidnon on Friday.

"Sana ‘yun ang gusto kong gawin sa Pilipinas (That’s what I want to do for the entire Philippines). And yet I have a little time left. Baka kung masunod lang nila ‘yang Davao (Maybe if they were only able to replicate what they did in Davao)," he added.
