Statement of DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año on Designation of PLt. Gen. Archie Gamboa as new PNP Chief

January 20, 2020

We welcome the designation of PLt Gen Archie Gamboa as the new Chief, PNP. He is very qualified for the job. I expect that he will work harder now that he is the permanent head of the PNP and lead the organization in its intensified fight against illegal drugs, criminalilties, communist terrorist groups and extremists.

I also expect that he would continue to cleanse the PNP ranks of scalawags. I enjoin the whole DILG especially the police force to rally behind him, enforce the law without fear or favor, and serve and protect the people.
