“Of course solving issues and problems is a whole-of-government approach and a whole-of-nation initiative…Always a part of our initiative,” he added, is in “solving the internal security problem.”

Año made the remark following President Duterte’s announcement that he will be the next Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary.

“Whatever job is offered to us…then I will do my best to be able to contribute,” Año said.

Año said that he was surprised to be named this early, considering that his retirement is still in October, or five months away.

“It will depend on Code 1, on the President,” he said.

“I cannot answer specifically (when it will be) but on my part I’ll prepare (for it). It will depend on the President when I will assume the position. If it’s earlier than October, of course, I have to retire early,” Año added.
