Former military chief of staff Eduardo Año vowed yesterday to take the lead in working honestly and diligently following his appointment as officer-in-charge (OIC) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
“It is my strong desire to implement changes in order to realize the President’s programs in improving the life of every Filipino,” said Año in a statement.
“I enjoin all members of Team DILG to perform their tasks honestly and diligently towards improving the quality of the services to attain DILG’s programs for the good of our country and our countrymen,” he added.
Año replaced Catalino Cuy as DILG OIC. The latter was appointed as the new head of the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB).
