President Rodrigo Duterte said during the 45th anniversary celebration of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) on February 6 that he fired another government official, a budget undersecretary.

“‘Yung Budget namin, undersecretary, halos sinipa ko sa mukha. P***** i** ka. I just fired him, ‘yung undersecretary ni [Budget Secretary Benjamin] Diokno,” he said din his speech.

“Ang style ng walang-hiya, p***** i** niya, ikaw, director ka, oh director kulang ka ng pera. Kausap siya doon sa ano – lakarin niya doon sa budget. Ito gobyerno talaga ‘tong pera ha, walang drama ito, walang – q** s* j*** kung saang pera – sige, magbulong siya doon,” the President said.

“If you want to add that is something out of the budget or out even of the GAA and there are some unexpected expenses and you want to perform, you need the money, you just call this guy because he has another guy, runner niya. He gets the money for you, approval, but you give him something,” he explained.

“Piniprito na kami sa sarili naming mantika diyan. Kaya pinatawag ko, ginanun ko talaga sa mukha, “T*** i** ka, pati — pati dito ginawa mo.” Hindi na bale ‘yung importation, tapos kumita ka sobra-sobra or procurement,” he added.

“Stop muna. Tutal dadaan lang ako eh, I’m now on my years – fourth? Going fourth – my second or third, madali lang ‘yan. In a jiffy, I’m out. But at this time during the remaining years of my presidency huwag, ‘wag talaga kasi uupakan kita,” he appealed. “That goes for the military, the police and all.”
