PRO-6: PCI Jovie Espenido Not Qualified for Police Director Post in Iloilo City

The controversial police officer, Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido, who is now known in social media as the drug-buster cop and narco-politician's worst nightmare is not qualified to become Police Director of Iloilo City or the Province according to the statement released by the Region 6 Police Office (PRO-6).

According to Superintendent Gilbert Gorero, PRO-6 spokesperson, PCI Espenido can only assume post as Chief of Police of stations under the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) or Iloilo Police Provincial Office (IPPO).

Supt. Gorero explained that "Iloilo City is a highly-urbanized city and to head the ICPO, a police officer should have the rank of Senior Superintendent. Unlike Iloilo City, Ozamiz City is just a component city of Misamis Occidental.

PRO-6 also confirmed Espenido's assignment to PRO-6 but it depends on PRO-6 Director Police Chief Superintendent Cesar Hawthorne Binag on what position to give. PCI Espenido could be a chief officer of a station, PDEA-6, or a chosen town.

Pres. Rody Duterte on Monday said that he would assign PCI Jovie Espenido to Iloilo City, which he called the "most shabulized" province in the Philippines aside from naming Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog as one of the narco-politicians on his drugs watch list.

Mayor Mabilog has denied all the allegations against him, despite the fact that some evidence were already spreading on social media particularly his close acquaintance with some well-known drug personalities in the city. The mayor also noted that he is willing to subject himself to any investigation.

The Iloilo City Mayor welcomed the assignment of Espenido to the City, citing that the latter will be key to belie all the allegations about him and the city of Iloilo.

PNP Chief Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa on his part clarified the appointment of PCI Espenido to Iloilo City as he noted that the appointment paper of Espenido is just the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Iloilo City Police Office.

Based on PNP rules, the position of city police chief of a highly urbanized area like Iloilo City should be given to a Police Officer with a Senior Superintendent rank.
