DAGUPAN CITY- In the scale of 1 to 10 with 10 as the highest, Abono Partylist Chair Rosendo O. So) gave a ‘nine’ to President Duterte on his war on drugs during his first 100 days.
So, also chair of Samahang Industriya ng Agrikultura (Sinag) gave the rating during the KBP Forum where he was the guest held at the office of Philippine Information Agency (PIA), Pangasinan Office at the Dagupan City’s People’s Astrodome last October 13.
“President Duterte’s war against illegal drugs has provided an atmosphere of confidence among businessmen in the country particularly the members of the Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce,” So said.
He also said long before Duterte was elected as president, he together with then Lingayen-Dagupan Archdiocese’s Archbishop Oscar Cruz were already against the proliferation of illegal drugs and have been coordinating with the Philippine National Police (PNP) and other government agencies.
“There’s nothing to fear on the conduct of Operation Tokhang where businessmen’s establishments are being inspected by PNP if they are not hiding anything. They should just assign their employees to look into the inspection process to deter the planting of evidence,” he said.
So further said  businessmen are in fact happy about the activities against illegal drugs as these will ensure peace and order in the country that could give vibrant operations of businesses.
 He also said  he could not give the highest rating to President Duterte on other programs and projects of the government because he is still using the 2016 appropriations under former  President Aquino.

” Maybe by next year, I could already rate him (President Duterte) on other activities under his administration,” So said.
When asked to rate the Department of Agriculture (DA), So gave a rating of “6” saying that DA under Secretary (Emmanuel) Piñol has many  programs for the betterment of farmers and fishermen in the country.
