Fresh News: In a phone interview on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald 'Bato' dela Rosa said he is thankful that President Rodrigo Duterte broadened his term indeed and said that he is elated that despite everything, he has the President's full trust.

The Chief General pronounced that he is very delighted to know that the president still has his full trust and confidence in him. Hence, he is also very grateful that he will still be working for the country and will continue to provide service to the Filipino people.

"Paano ko ba i-describe yan, masaya dahil ang trust and confidence ni Presidente sa akin ay buo pa rin. Tuloy pa rin ang paglilingkod ko sa bayan. Magtatrabaho pa rin ako. Kesa naman wala naman ako gagawin," Chief Dela Rosa said

President Rodrigo Duterte announced that he has decided to extend again the term of General 'Bato' and implied of missions that he entrusted Chief General Dela Rosa to wrap up.

When asked what is that said mission, General Dela Rosa answered that it is to clean up the PNP in scalawags, the fight for terrorism, and to continue the President's top priority which is the 'war on  drugs.'

"Yung mission na 'yan? Mission na linisin pa ang PNP sa scalawags. Itong drugs, 'yan pa rin ang priority niya. Ipagpatuloy ko ang war on drugs. Atsaka yung problema natin sa terrorism atsaka itong sa NPA," The General said

According to the PNP chief, he knew that there are many who are hoping and waiting for him to retire but since it was President Duterte's prerogative for him to continue his job as PNP chief General, he cannot do anything but to go on and do what the President says.

General Dela Rosa then exclaimed that he will never leave the president and as long as Pres. Duterte needs him, he will not leave.

"If that is the case then wala akong magawa. Presidential prerogative, decision niya 'yan... Pero in as much as gusto ko silang pagbigyan, pero kung gusto ni presidente na magpatuloy pa ako, anong magagawa ko?"

"Si Presidente naman ang may gusto na magpatuloy ako sa aking trabaho. Pagbigyan ko talaga siya, hindi ko siya iiwanan. Hanggang sa dulo ng walang hangganan, hindi ko siya iiwanan. Kung kinakailangan pa niya ang serbisyo ko, nandito lang ako." The chief General added.

General Bato also mentioned that being a a PNP chief for him is 'fate'. He believes that he is destined to be one and that God created his destiny and added that he is a good soldier, will do orders radiating from his boss and will serve the President until his final gasp.

"Yung pagiging chief PNP naman, that is destiny, kung hindi talaga para sa iyo, kahit na mag-insist ka. Kahit anong gawin mong paninira diyan sa naka-puwesto, para lang makuha mo ang puwesto na yan hindi talaga ibigay sayo. Pero kung para sa iyo, andiyan ka lang pero para sa iyo iyan, talagang, mapapasa-iyo ang puwesto na yan. Destiny iyan, nobody can create destiny, it's only God who can create destiny," he said.

"I am a good soldier and will do orders emanating from my boss. I am willing to serve him up to my last breath sa laki ng utang na loob ko sa kanya. Up to my last breath, pwede akong magserbisyo sa kanya." Gen. 'Bato' exclaimed.

In the end, General Dela Rosa said he was prepared to venture down after his presumed retirement from the administration last January, yet Pres. Duterte broadened his duty as PNP chief for an additional three months, and said that if ever he could be extended up to a year.

"Supposed to be April 21. Kung extend niya pa ako, he has until January 21, 2019, pwede niya ako extend hanggang January 21. Kung one year ang extension," the PNP chief said. 

And added, "Alam niya iyan na he can extend me up to one year, according to law ang basehan natin. Pwede niyang gawin 'yan. He is authorized by law up to January 21, 2019".
