You can’t talk drugs without Duterte! President’s standee joins group photo of officials meeting to discuss the drug war

Dec 7, 2017 @ 13:21

Those who saw the post of the Office of Presidential Adviser for Southern Tagalog Dennis Hernandez about his meeting with officials of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency might have done a double take.

Hernandez posed with the officials and shared the photo on Facebook. And on the far left of the photo they took is a man that looks very much like President Duterte.

Was he there at the meeting? If so, why was he not front and center, as is the proper place for the highest official of the land?

It turns out to be just a standee of the President, which got included in the group shot.

In any case, it was only fitting that the President was there, even in standee form. After all, he is the biggest champion of the campaign against illegal drugs.

“Visit of PDEA Regional Director Archie Grande and Provincial Officer Diocampo at the Satellite Office of the Presidential Adviser for Southern Tagalog. RD Grande presented CALABARZON updates to Secretary Dennis Hernandez in line with President Duterte’s campaign against drugs,” the photo caption stated.
