Napakabigat na trabaho niyan. Sige imagine-in niyo na lang ang pinakamahirap na trabaho," he told reporters on Tuesday.

Pres. Duterte during his assumption as the country's chief executive named Benjamin delos Santos as his first Bureau of Corrections Chief but the latter left his post amid reports of continued drug proliferation at the New Bilibid Prison.

The BuCor is currently headed by retired Chief Supt. Vafrie Tabian. During the past few months under the Duterte administration, there were still continued drug trade inside the facility that prompted the deployment of Special Action (SAF) personnel inside the national penitentiary.
