Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. when interviewed by the media on Thursday revealed that he welcomed the assignment of PCI Espenido to Iloilo City but also stressed that the Province does not need him asked on the possibility that he will request Espenido to be assigned to Iloilo Province.

PCI Espenido, the former Chief of Police of Ozamiz City is known to be an effective and brave implementer of the campaign against illegal drugs.

Gov. Defensor stated that Espenido will help determine the real situation in Iloilo City, especially about the allegations against Mayor Jed Mabilog being a drug protector as accused by Pres. Duterte.

The Iloilo Governor also defended Mayor Jed Mabilog by saying that "Mabilog is not a drug lord and the President even used the word 'protector.' The question is how true it is that Mabilog is a drug protector? It is good that Espenido would know and report it to the President," he stressed.

The governor was quoted as saying "If he (Mabilog) is a drug protector or not, that I do not know. But Espenido would know if that is true or not,” the governor added.

When the reporters asked if the governor will request PCI Espenido to be assigned to the Province of Iloilo to help eliminate problems on hard drugs, the governor stressed that the province does not need him.

Gove. Defenso also noted that he was not even sure if the President’s allegations against the three mayors of the province as narco-politicians are true or not as no case has been filed against any of them.
