Outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo said she has “no regrets” even though her office went through various obstacles under the Duterte administration.
The lack of support from other government agencies inspired her office to look for other means to help the country, Robredo shared on the last episode of her weekly radio program.
“Looking back, ‘yung lahat ng mga kahirapan na binigay sa amin, actually, ayun ‘yung nagpahusay sa amin,” she said.
“Siyempre mas gugustuhin namin na kapag kailangan ng tulong ng opisina namin ay tutulungan kami. Pero dahil hindi kami tinuring na kakampi, hindi kami tinuring na bahagi ng pamahalaan, natuto kami na maghanap ng paraan. To my mind, ayun yung nagpahusay sa amin,” she added.
All the hardships they faced in the past 6 years were a blessing in disguise, Robredo noted.
“Pero sa amin wala naman akong regrets. Gaya ng sinabi ko, lahat kami nag-agree sa Office of the Vice President, grabe ‘yung dinaanan namin. Ayaw na namin ikwento pa ‘yung dinaanan namin…‘Yung kahirapan talaga, ‘yun yung blessing sa amin,” she said.
The Commission on Audit has awarded the Office of the Vice President under Robredo the highest audit rating for three consecutive years.
